Essex Winter Series

Our Mission is to bring the finest music, in live performance, to the Connecticut River Valley and Shoreline Region during the winter months and to cultivate its appreciation to the widest audience.

Our History is one of great music since 1978.

Our Concerts are renowned not only for their world-class artistic quality, but also for their extraordinary variety and friendly, informal atmosphere. Programs have ranged from an intimate solo guitar recital to a full symphony orchestra, and have included both instrumental and vocal music. Each season includes a Stu Ingersoll Jazz concert and presents young performers in the Fenton Brown Emerging Artists concert. All concerts are Sundays at 3:00 pm.

Our Members, as part of the EWS family, enjoy meet-the-artist receptions, dinners and other social occasions. They also contribute to the cultural life of their community by supporting concerts, student ticket discounts, community programs, and emerging artists.

Our Community programs bring dedicated musical artists to schools and senior residences on the Shoreline, New London, and Middletown.

Our Venues: Our concerts are held at either Valley Regional High School in Deep River, John Winthrop Middle School in Deep River, or Old Saybrook High School in Old Saybrook, Connecticut. Please verify venue locations on the concert page.
