“This intimate stone hall, with white stucco and stained-glass windows, sits atop a small hill rising from Nahant Bay. It is an ideal setting for chamber music”
Alex Ludwig, The Boston Musical Intelligencer
A note from Series organizer Jim Walsh:
We offer free concert admission to all students accompanied by a parent or other adult. The Nahant Historical Society and its Ellingwood
Concerts are committed to providing an opportunity for students to taste the fine wine of good music and no laws will be broken by sharing this wine with our young people
April 23 & 24th
Ute Gfrerer-Wald with Edgar Unterkirchner, Roberto Cassan, and William Merrill
The Ellingwood Chapel concert series opens its 2016 season on April 23 and April 24 as Ute Gfrerer-Wald brings her special talent and grace to the
Ellingwood Chapel in an evening entitled Unexpected Song. With her will be a new (and unexpected) guest, the Austrian saxophonist Edgar
Unterkirchner who is heard playing on the video linked below. The unexpected songs will emerge in many languages, some of them enhanced by
Italian-born accordionist Roberto Cassan. The musical web encompassing these three artists will be spun on our new Tanglewood piano by our
friend of many years William Merrill.

Both evenings will begin at 7:30 PM. Admission for the Saturday, April 23 performance will be $25 and students will be admitted without
charge if accompanied by an adult. On Sunday, April 24th, there will be fundraising reception at the beautiful home of artist Norman
Laliberté and his wife Laurel. For many years we have looked forward to their gracious hospitality as part of our annual fund
raising concert. The reception was switched to Sunday so that it would not conflict with Passover. The tickets for the Sunday
performance will be $50 per ticket and includes the reception.
