IMPORTANT INFORMATION about our 30th Season

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 had decided to present one performance per concert weekend on Saturdays at 3pm. Unfortunately, however, out of an abundance of caution, the beautiful church we call our home has made the difficult decision to restrict in-person gatherings of any kind for the foreseeable future.

Though we cannot offer you in-person concerts this season, we are thankful that we still will be filming each performance as planned on the dates below.  You will be able to enjoy our beautiful performances by purchasing video tickets to enjoy our concerts from the comfort of your own home.

Our concert filming dates are below.  The videos will be made available within two weeks of each concert to all ticket holders to watch for three weeks.

  • 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.
