Atlantic Highlands, NJ – Friday, December 22, at 7:30 pm, the Arts Council celebrates the holiday season with chamber music in a historic Atlantic Highlands home, beautifully decorated for the holidays.

The Living Room Concert will feature Laura DuBois (piano), Joel DeWitt (violin), Jan Dash (clarinet), and Wayne Arndt (cello), all accomplished shore area performers. The program includes works of Khachaturian, Schumann,

Vivaldi, Beethoven, Dvorak, and Mendelssohn.

On Saturday, January 5, at another Atlantic Highlands home, the concert, co-sponsored by the Front Porch Club, brings six members of M Shanghai, a New York based band performing all-acoustic unamplified original music influenced by Americana, roots, jazz, and folk.

The Atlantic Highlands Arts Council's new "Living Room Concert" series presents professional musicians in the intimate living rooms of private homes and of the Historical Society's Strauss Mansion. With fewer than 50 seats available for each concert, audience members also enjoy refreshments and conversation and the opportunity to meet the musicians.

Tickets are $20 and may be purchased online at http://www.atlantichighlandsartscouncil.org, or reserved by phone at 732-737-7160.
