Dear Friend of Music at Eden's Edge,

Since 1982, excellent musicianship and thrilling audience experiences have defined Music at Eden’s Edge. MEE’s 2018 season brought a wide variety of creative musical experiences, interactive lecture/performances and traditional chamber concerts, with repertoire ranging from the early music of Into That Most Baroque of Times, to the virtuosity of Duo Zonda, two flutes pushing the boundaries of our awareness.

In 2019, proud and grateful to be presenting our 38th season, we plan to continue this adventurous and intriguing programming at our three venues, The Congregational Church of Topsfield, the Peabody Institute Library in Peabody Center and The Barn, Peirce Farm at Witch Hill in Topsfield. 

“A different meditation. It’s like everyone is dancing.”

These words, when they were sent to us by a new audience member, touched us all deeply. They underscore the beneficial effects of connecting directly with our audience members, and of sharing the treasure of music with each other.

Consistent with MEE’s mission to perform chamber music of the highest caliber for the broadest possible audience, we want to continue the practice of offering low-cost or free admission - a benefit we share with you and with all of our audience members. To continue and grow this practice, MEE must ask you to play your part in the music-making. Your donation to MEE will support our amazing musicians and their exhilarating programs, and ensure the ongoing availability of distinctive experiences for you and for the entire North Shore community. 

“We have attended a concert with you just about every year for nearly 20 years now, and I want to thank you so much for the pleasure it always brings to my daughter and me. She was 4 or 5 when we started!”

“My friend and I attended the last concert of the season last evening over at the Peirce Farm at Witch Hill. Like all the others, it was a delightful evening. We haven’t missed one the past two years and all are wonderful. We both look forward to more such events next fall.”

“Every time I thought “this piece is my favorite” you would follow it up with something equally as amazing.”

Those words from three of our enthusiastic listeners remind us that our work is responsible for helping to instill and nurture a great love of music in our greater community, of which you are a valued member. Your presence at concerts makes the concert happen.
