Essex Winter Series Presents Project: Music Heals Us String Trio with Pianist Mihae Lee on March 12
Essex Winter Series continues this year’s stellar season with its third concert on March 12 at John Winthrop Middle School, featuring Project: Music Heals Us String Trio. This nonprofit has gained press worldwide for their performances with isolated Covid patients and marginalized populations … “bringing the healing Power of Music to those who need it most.” Performing selections by Schubert, Dohnanyi and Dvorák, the ambassador group of Andre Janss (cello), Stephanie Zyzak (violin), and Brian Hong (violin and viola) will be joined by EWS Artistic Director and pianist Mihae Lee for Dvorák’s Piano Quartet in E-Flat Major, Op. 87.
Following the March 12 concert, Project: Music Heals Us artists will spend four days visiting schools and senior communities in Middlesex and New London counties as part of the annual Essex Winter Series Community Outreach program, touching the lives of nearly 3,000 area individuals of all ages at approximately a dozen facilities. This effort is possible in part with grant funding from the Community Foundation of Middlesex County and the generosity of the River View Cemetary Fund and Elizabeth Swaim Arts Enrichment Fund; with the support of the Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development, Office of the Arts, which also receives support from the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency; and the Kitchings Family Foundation.
The 46th Essex Winter Series season will close with the Grammy Award-winning choral group, Chanticleer – often referred to as a “orchestra of voices” – returning to our stage on April 23.
Concerts begin at 3 pm and are general admission. For tickets visit www.essexwinterseries.com or call 860-272-4572. As a precaution and if necessary for our audience, artists and staff, following Covid health guidelines may be required.
