Nilsson had family ties to Salem and invited Vieuxtemps to perform with her for the benefit of the congregation. They raised thousands of dollars (in today’s currency) for the construction of a new church building. On February 9, 2020, Salem will be honoring this historic moment by recreating the program that was played by Vieuxtemps and Nilsson featuring Salem’s own violinist, Owen Ruff. A Free-Will Offering will be Taken.
