April 30 & May 1, 2022

Musical Masterworks’ 31st season came to a close on April 30 and May 1, 2022, with the final performances of our beloved Edward Arron in his position as Artistic Director. While bittersweet, we are delighted to welcome the amazing Tessa Lark as Artistic Director for our upcoming 32nd season which begins in October.


Arron and Lark were joined by pianist Jeewon Park and double bassist Michael Thurber. They performed Handel, Beethoven and Rachmaninoff, plus Mark O’Connor’s gorgeous Appalachia Waltz.
