Westford: The Board of Directors of the United Church of Westford faced a difficult decision in February. They declared the building in service since 1840 would no longer be used regularly as a church. Meanwhile, it found new life as a concert space. Last month Vermont quartet Frevo played music ranging from contemporary classical to The Beach Boys there. And Artis Wodehouse, a New York pianist dedicated to the music of George Gershwin, began a four-month residency at the church in June to record dozens of Gershwin’s rare, unrecorded piano rolls. She raved about the space. “This is a recording studio. The acoustics are that good.”
