Essex Winter Series in the Community

The Essex Winter Series is involved in the local community in a number of ways.

• Young Artists who appear in the EWS series participate in the Fenton Brown Emerging Artists Concert Community Outreach Program by visiting local schools and retirement homes for concerts and master classes.

The Kitchings Family Foundation’s Special Grant Outreach Program allows our jazz musicians to perform for the students of C. B. Jennings Elementary School in New London.

The Francis Bealey Memorial Scholarship was established in 1995 after the passing of EWS board president Francis Bealey, to honor his commitment to music and arts education. The Bealey Memorial Scholarship is awarded annually to a graduating senior of Valley Regional

High School to pursue studies in music at the undergraduate level. The scholarship currently provides $1,000 for each year of study, for a total of $4,000.

These efforts are supported by the generosity of Essex Winter Series’s sponsors, foundation grants, and corporate support.

We gratefully acknowledge the support of the Community Foundation of Middlesex County/Elizabeth Swaim Arts Enrichment Fund for their 2013 grant allowing us to provide Emerging Artist community outreach master classes to the Middletown Public Schools. middlesexcountycf.org

We also gratefully acknowledge the support of, and partnership with, the Community Music School. www.community-music-school.org
