Outreach Programs

Acting on the belief that experiencing live classical music presented by dynamic young musicians is vital to childhood development, Musical Masterworks’ Outreach Program began during the 1997-1998 season.

For over 20 years,

Musical Masterworks has presented more than 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 Project Fusion Saxophone Quartet, Quinteto Latino, Imani Winds, Marian Anderson String Quartet, Asylum Quartet, Harlem String Quartet, Chiara String Quartet and Ritz Chamber Players.

This season we’re looking forward to bringing back our in-person school programs during the spring of 2023. We are are delighted to welcome Vision Duo, featuring Ariel Horowitz on violin and Britton-René Collins on marimba/percussion.

They play classical music with a contemporary twist, and seek to contribute to the redefinition of classical music. They are passionate about experimenting with traditional concepts of genre, blending seemingly opposite soundworlds, while creating equity and access in musical spaces and prioritizing inclusion and representation from the composers they perform to the work they do in communities.

Many thanks to The Kitchings Family Foundation for sponsoring our Outreach Program.
