The Mission of the Northwest Music Association (NMA) is to sponsor Baroque Era chamber music with an educational component, performed by renowned professional musicians.
Because of restrictions due to the pandemic, the concerts in 2021 will be streamed on YouTube
The Northwest Music Association (NMA) will begin its fourteenth season in 2021 Attendance has grown steadily over the years with between 150-200 enthusiastic music lovers attending each concert. St John's Church in Salisbury, CT., with its superb acoustics, graciously provides the venue. Our audience comes from a radius of 25 miles to hear these concerts in this outstanding space.
We currently offer four concerts a year, each about an hour to an hour and fifteen minutes in length, usually followed by a lively reception at which musicians and audience happily mingle. unfortunately these cannot take place in 2021.
To date, NMA has contracted with The New Baroque Soloists. This highly professional group offers a varied repertoire, including popular works by well-known composers as well as premieres from the group’s proprietary repertoire. Besides playing this wonderful music, the musicians also take a few minutes to educate the audience about the historical background of the times, instruments and pieces about to be played.
After thirteen successful seasons, there is a strong sense of community characterized by a warm and energized rapport between the audience and musicians.
The NMA's board is growing in number and diversity. Members give time and money to support the mission.
