MEE's deep roots in the North Shore spring from our commitment to community outreach, which is as central to our mission as great performances. This summer, MEE will offer four free concerts as part of the Senior/Family Series. Held on Tuesday afternoons, these concerts take place at the fully accessible Northshore Unitarian Universalist Church (NUUC) in Danvers. They are designed to bring the joy of chamber music to audiences ranging from families with young children to seniors, many of whom attend every single performance in the series.
These programs have been made possible through the generous support of the Alice Willard Dorr Foundation, Charles H. Farnsworth Trust, John W. Boynton Fund, The Fuller Foundation, the Massachusetts Cultural Council and the Local Cultural Council of Danvers, Massachusetts.
