Dear Friend of Music at Eden's Edge,

Our renewal year of Music at Eden's Edge has seen a whirlwind of activity, three series of sparkling concerts and lecture performances, and so many affirming moments of friendship and community around great music. We are planning now for 2018, and we need your help to make it all happen.

I cannot tell you how often listeners have come up to each of our MEE performers this year expressing enthusiasm for the music and also appreciation for this high level of performance that MEE offers right here in our beautiful corner of the North Shore. Among people I meet, I see renewed interest in learning more about classical music and in discovering the dynamic experience of a live concert. In the words of a relative newcomer to classical concerts, "Every time I thought 'this piece is my favorite' you would follow it up with something equally as amazing."

We are so pleased to be able to announce our 2018 lecture/performances, Close Encounters with Music at the Peabody Institute Library and Music Speaks! (NEW!) at the Barn at Peirce Farm in Topsfield. We are planning another appealing series of Chamber Concerts at the historic Congregational Church of Topsfield. Returning artists include guest artist violinist Daniel Stepner, flutist Orlando Cela, cellist Jacques Lee Wood, and your favorite members of the MEE roster. Looking ahead to our 37th season, MEE plays on!!

We have you to thank for supporting us by attending concerts and lecture/performances, for recommending MEE to friends, and for sustaining us with past donations to our annual appeal. I say this with intention because, as promised, we will only ask once per year for your charitable support, and it really matters to our continuance that you consider a generous gift at this time. Your fully tax-deductible donation now will ensure another season of wonderful music – of listening, learning and community. We hope you can be generous, and understand that we appreciate a gift of any size. Music has a fundamental place in building as well as enhancing the life of our community, and MEE is very well-positioned for this essential work. Please play your part, and we will joyfully play ours!

With a shared love of great music,

Maria Benotti
