The year 2020 gave all of us a challenge that still continues this year, but for us at Essex Winter Series, we learned how much people treasure the Arts. The support we have received from our sponsors – Clark Group, Essex Meadows, Jeffrey N. Mehler, CFP, Masonicare at Chester Village, and Tower Laboratories – as well as from advertisers, members and donors was a wonderful affirmation of how much pleasure the EWS series brings to its community. We wished to gratefully acknowledge that support and give back with a 2021 season of free virtual concerts, one each month from Janaury to April, and available to our email list. Each will feature artists you have loved seeing on our stage, but now coming to you from their homes. January 10th will be the first highly-anticipated concert with Artistic Director Mihae Lee (piano) peforming with her husband, William Purvis, French horn. February’s artist will be our series’ Jazz Artistic Advisor, the incomparable Jeff Barnhart. In March, another husband and wife duo performs: world-renowned artists Patricia Schuman, soprano, and David Pittsinger, bass. The season will close with the happy return of the Quodlibet Ensemble.
