30th Season Upcoming Concerts

2020 - 2021 SEASON | October 2020 - May 2021

This season we, like so many performing arts organizations, are facing uncertain times. Since guidance on public gatherings is constantly evolving, for this season only we have decided to present one performance per concert weekend on Saturdays at 3pm.

October 24, 2020 at 3pm
December 19, 2020 at 3pm
February 13, 2021 at 3pm
March 13, 2021 at 3pm

TWO ways to enjoy our performances this season!

Either in-person at the First Congregational Church of Old Lyme or by video at your convenience in the comfort of your home.

This season we have the opportunity to bring something new to our dedicated concert attendees! Should attendance at live performances be restricted during the upcoming season—or if you simply feel more comfortable enjoying our concerts from the comfort of your home—we will be filming each concert and will email instructions on how to access the videos. The videos will be made available within two weeks of each concert to all ticket holders to watch for three weeks.

*** We have SOLD OUT of our in-person tickets for the season, but we have an unlimited supply of in-home subscriptions and tickets available! ***

  • It was breathtaking, astonishing really; people were hooting and cheering and grinning from ear to ear.

  • Thank you for another delightful year! The March concert was fabulous!

  • Thanks for another wonderful series!! I am already looking forward to next Fall!

  • Ed Arron is a national treasure.

  • Musical Masterworks is a splendid and exceptional organization.

  • Musical Masterworks has changed our community forever.

  • How totally enjoyable the concerts have been all year . . . I don't remember leaving one on such a high as I did this afternoon. The audience was totally engaged, including a young boy in the balcony across from me who stood and listened, totally absorbed. A wonderful sight !

  • It is such an unusual series and one of the greatest pleasures in my life: to sit quietly, no extraneous unordered beeps or squeaks and cacophony. Only sweet sounds from very skilled and talented musicians, offering themselves to us and sharing the beauty created between composer and player. So rare these days...I always feel a lot better after a MM concert. Necessary R&R.
