April 29 & 30, 2023

In April, we finished the season with our dear Edward Arron as he made his triumphant return with the extraordinary Ehnes Quartet for our closing concerts, featuring Haydn, Bartok and Mendelssohn.


“Becoming the Artistic Director for Musical Masterworks has been a dream come true,” remarked Lark.  “I am humbled to honor and uphold the love and support that has come from Ed Arron, Charles Wadsworth, all the founders, and every nook and cranny of this organization since day one, 32 years ago.  And it was fitting to have Ed back on stage to complete my first season as Artistic Director.”
