Check back here soon for information about our 30th Season

2020 - 2021 SEASON | October 2020 - May 2021

Like so many arts organizations throughout the nation and across the world right now, Musical Masterworks is in the unimaginable situation of having to cancel the remainder of our 2020 season due to the Coronavirus outbreak. This, of course, is particularly heartbreaking because it means that the incredible programming of the Complete Cycle of Beethoven’s String Quartets cannot occur, the March and May programming that we worked so hard to produce and you all supported so passionately and anticipated so eagerly.

While this saddens us all, we want to reassure you that we are more determined than ever to come back in Season 30 with a strong and jubilant season–one that says that music is still here, that performances of live music do still matter, perhaps more than ever   now. I look forward to being back in touch with you to announce our Season 30 programming and dates.

In the meantime, we wish you health and patience during these unprecedented times.  I know that appreciation for the arts will be even more evident once we return from our homes and l Iook forward to welcoming you back to the beautiful First Congregational Church of Old Lyme in the fall.

How to handle your March and May Season 29 tickets
  • 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.
