TWENTY YEARS BRINGING WORLD-CLASS MUSICIANS AT WESTPORT PRICES
The 2016-2017 Season will be Concerts at the Point’s 20th. A remarkable feat for a small, volunteer-run organization on the SouthCoast presenting chamber music (including classical jazz in concert). Concerts are held in the fall and early spring in the wonderful concert space at the Westport Point United Methodist Church, which seats about 215 – perfect setting for both chamber musicians and audiences.
Ticket prices are $25, and $10 for students.
Ticket sales cover about half of total concert costs. Thanks to generous donors and supporters, we are able to bring WORLD CLASS musicians to the SouthCoast at a fraction of what tickets would cost in Boston or New York.
Nearly half of our audience members make an extra tax-deductible contribution to help keep ticket prices affordable to the wider community. The significant and skilled contributions from volunteers help keep administration and production costs low. Many thanks to those volunteers, especially Roz Wadsworth who started the series and headed the organization for many years.
We also receive considerable support from charitable foundations and business sponsors, including:
Carter Family Trust
John Clarke Trust
Helen E. Ellis Charitable Foundation
Grimshaw-Gudewicz Charitable Foundation
Westport Point Neighborhood Association
The Back Eddy Restaurant
Lees’ Wine and Spirits
Tim’s Lawn Care.
