Musical Masterworks offers FREE community concerts in November and welcomes new artists at December
Old Lyme, Connecticut – October 17, 2023
Musical Masterworks is pleased to continue its Community Engagement Program for a second year and has named Decoda as Musical Masterworks’ Ensemble-in-Residence. Decoda will be in-residence for two weeks at a variety of nonprofits and schools on the shoreline, including Waterford Country School, Fitch High School and Vista, a nonprofit creating community for neurologically diverse adults. The second week of Decoda’s residency will be focused on creative programming for Cheshire Correctional Institute inmates, a high/medium security men’s prison in New Haven County.
In addition to the residency programs, Decoda will be performing at several community venues in Old Lyme, including a family concert at LYSB (Lymes’ Youth Service Bureau) on Sunday, November 12, 2023 at 1:30 pm. We will host a formal concert on Sunday, November 19, from 2:00-3:30 at Saint Ann's Church in Old Lyme followed by a post-concert reception.
Musical Masterworks' main concert series continues on December 2nd and 3rd when they will welcome four new artists to the First Congregational Church of Old Lyme. Joining Artistic Director Tessa Lark for the December performances will be Carmit Zori and Todd Phillips on violin, Robert Rinehart on viola, Julia Lichten and Tony Rymer on cello, and Michael Thurber on double bass. The concerts will feature works by Dvořák, Bach, Thurber and Lark.
