Fenton Brown Emerging Artists

As part of its robust outreach program, EWS brings highly accomplished musical artists to schools, senior residences, and community organizations in several Shoreline communities each year. Guitar duo LINU was the 2020 Fenton Brown Emerging Artist and performed a concert on March 8, 2020. The following day, they began a 3-day residency with Essex Winter Series Artistic Director Mihae Lee as part of our outreach program. Guitarists Gulli Bjornsson and Jiji visited several schools and community organizations in Middlesex and New London Counties, performing and teaching through workshops and master classes. These included programs for students at several elementary, middle and high schools; a performance for residents of Masonicare at Chester Village and Essex Meadows; and a master class for guitar students of the Community Music School in Centerbrook. The outreach programs are generously sponsored by the EWS Fenton Brown Circle, the Kitchings Family Foundation, and an anonymous friend.
