Northwest Music Association Announces Grant from Connecticut Humanities Salisbury CT May 1, 2022.
The Northwest Music Association (NMA), centered in Connecticut’s beautiful Northwest Corner, has been awarded a grant of $6,400 from Connecticut Humanities to support its 2022 summer season, with funding provided by the Connecticut State Legislature through the Connecticut State Department of Economic and Community Development/Connecticut Office of the Arts.
NMA sponsors each summer as many as four Baroque-era concerts, at no cost to the public, currently performed by the New Baroque Soloists under the leadership of the renowned Doug Myers. Besides playing this wonderful music, the musicians take a few minutes before each piece to talk to the audience about the historical background of the times, instruments, and pieces to be played.
The Connecticut Humanities grant will help support NMA’s return to live performances for 2022. “This grant is a vital part of our effort to return to fully live and in-person performances in the Northwest Corner this coming summer,” said Paddy Rossbach, president of the NMA. “Our Board and entire community of music-lovers are grateful for this generosity,” she added.
