Musical Masterworks’ community involvement program commenced during the 1997-1998 season.
In the past 20 years,
Musical Masterworks has presented over 125 chamber music programs and workshops to over 35,000 students in more than 20 schools, located in New London, Waterford, Old Lyme, Lyme, Old Saybrook, Deep River, Essex, Norwich and Montville. Artists who have appeared include the Imani Winds, the Marian Anderson String Quartet, the Asylum Quartet, the Harlem String Quartet, the Chiara String Quartet and the Ritz Chamber Players.
Continuing our commitment to bring great music to the children of our communities,
our Outreach Program will present Quinteto Latino, blending the vibrant colors and vigorous rhythms of Latin American music with the sumptuous voices of the wind quintet: flute, oboe, clarinet, French horn, and bassoon.
Whether exploring new twists on traditional folk songs or premiering works by living composers, these five musicians perform with impeccable artistry and infectious energy.
Quinteto Latino’s committed assembly of five passionate Teaching Artists are dedicated to community engagement as to traditional concertizing. They have performed literally hundreds of free concerts in elementary schools, middle schools, libraries, community centers, as well as senior center and have worked with students of all ages and ability levels in both English and Spanish.
