AREAWIDE — As Musical Masterworks opens its 26th season of exceptional chamber music, it seems only appropriate to begin the next quarter of a century of chamber music on the shoreline with the music of J.S. Bach. Flutist Tara Helen O’Connor and pianist Adam Neiman will perform along with cellist and Musical Masterworks Artistic Director Edward Arron.
The season’s first concerts are Saturday, Oct. 22, at 5 p.m. and Sunday, Oct. 23, at 3 p.m. at the First Congregational Church of Old Lyme, an acoustically rich and beautiful venue for chamber music. Arron described how special the series is to him, “I am gratified to know that Old Lyme, Connecticut, has become a secure and distinguished sanctuary for the art of chamber music, and a destination for renowned musicians from all over the world. Every year, I relish the opportunity to plumb the rich depths of the chamber music repertory in order to create five dynamic musical journeys.“
Musical Masterworks’ season runs October 2016 through May 2017. To purchase a series subscription ($150 each) or individual tickets ($35 individual; $5 student), visit Musical Masterworks at www.musicalmasterworks.org or call 860.434.2252.
