A Letter From Our President
Music produces a kind of pleasure which
human nature cannot do without.
Welcome Music Lovers!
Please join us this winter at 3pm as we warm up with fine chamber music, shared intimately, on 4 Sundays and 1 Saturday at Blue Hill’s most historic of churches. This is a rare opportunity to experience, fi rst hand and up close, music and musicians that are world class.
This will be our 36th year of bringing music to Blue Hill in the dark winter months, when many of us need it the most. This experience that heals, invigorates and transports us, is made possible through the generosity of
our donors, the efforts of a volunteer board that works 9 months a year, the legacy of our founders, and you.
The finances of this well respected and possibly even beloved organization,are quixotic in the best of times. To meet our programming costs we need to have 200 people attend each concert and pay full price. Given that our average audience tops off at just over 130, we’ve got a considerable hurdle to overcome.
Please do consider subscribing, making a donation, putting us in your will, or making a gift in kind. This year we’ll be sending you actual tickets five per subscription, rather than just passes. 1 subscription = 5 concerts.
We request and rely upon your generosity in helping us keep this musical treasure alive and well.
What could be a better way to wind down a Sunday afternoon, than to experience exceptional music, in a beautiful hall lit by Tiffany windows (no kidding), to view at intermission, a show by Maine inspired visual artists, and to do all this in the company of people who share a common bond? We
welcome you to join in this music loving community. Bring yourself, your friends, your family, and the capacity to listen with intense abandon. Here’s to our 36th season! We look forward to seeing you there.
Dee Knisley, President
