“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
And, here’s some really good news...thanks to the attentiveness of Jeff Chelgren, our new Town Administrator, and the wisdom of Town Meeting in voting
the financial resources recommended by the Community Preservation Committee, I am delighted to report that a designer has been chosen to design new
lighting for the Chapel. Mr. Chelgren reports that we should have mock-ups ready for our concerts in August and September.
Check back often for schedule updates!
Sunday, September 13th at 4 p.m.
the Solar Winds Quintet and guest pianist Guy Urban
Sunday September 13, 2015, 4 p.m.
Solar Winds Quintet with guest Guy Urban
in The Ellingwood Chapel
The Solar Winds Quintet with guest Guy Urban on piano will perform the Poulenc Sextet and the Beethoven
Quintet in E-flat, opus 71, as well as music by Percy Grainger and Claude Arrieu.
In our last concert we showed how our acoustics can favor a soft, solo instrument but this time we’ll hear the other end
of the spectrum. Guy Urban will play our new Tanglewood Piano along with the Solar Winds: Jill Dreeben - Flute, Charlyn Bethell -
Oboe, Diane Heffner - Clarinet, Neil Fairbairn - Bassoon, and Neil Godwin - French Horn. The pure, unamplified sound created by
these fine musicians will fill the Ellingwood Chapel.
