Dear Music Lovers,
Welcome! Now in our 14th season, we are proud to present exceptionally talented musicians to our intimate New England Meeting House for chamber and organ concerts. This season will feature artists from around the United States.
The suggested donation of $10 to $20 at the door for each concert is a means of supporting this historic church. Your ongoing generosity in underwriting these concerts (see below) makes it possible to invite such gifted artists to participate in our series. This will be a tax-deductible donation.
Please join us at all our concerts to experience excellent musicians, marvelous acoustics, a delightful ambiance, and receptions in the Caswell Library at Deerfield Academy.
