Music Committee

The Music Committee of the Friends of the Weston Public Library oversees the presentation of an annual concert series in the Library’s Community Room. The Committee’s mission is “to promote the appreciation and love of music and to expand the cultural opportunities available in Weston by enabling the Library to present a variety of musical programs which are free and open to the public.”  

The Music Committee generally presents nine concerts on Sunday afternoons from September through May (with a “winter break” between mid-December and early March), along with an annual MusicFest, an all-day event in May featuring Weston musicians of all ages. Performances in the concert series are varied, ranging from solo piano programs and string quartets to fiddle music and Dixieland Jazz. The Committee is also responsible for supervising the use of the Library’s Steinway piano to ensure that it remains in excellent condition.

Sunday, December 13 at 3 p.m. Virtual Piano Four Hands Concert featuring Jon Sakata and Jung Mi Lee. The Music Committee of the Friends of the Weston Library is delighted to announce the first performance in its innovative Virtual Concert Series, which will consist of nine concerts aired online and on local cable channels between this December and next April. Jon Sakata and Jung Mi Lee, two renowned concert pianists beloved by the Library’s audiences ever since they first performed in the Community Room over 20 years ago, will launch the Series in a spectacular fashion, performing a piano four hands concert featuring Mozart’s “Fantasy in F minor,” Leopold Godowsky’s “Symphonic Metamorphoses on Künstlerleben (Artist’s Life) by Johann Strauss II,” and Maurice Ravel’s “La Valse—poème chorégraphique.” 

This Season, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Music Committee is hosting a Virtual Concert Series of nine performances beginning this December and running through next April. Concerts will be accessible through this webpage, the Weston Media Center’s Videos On Demand service, and on local television channels: Verizon Channel 45 and Comcast Channel 9. After each première, concerts will continue to be available online and on the local cable channels for viewers to enjoy. Audience members on the Committee’s email list (see link below to sign up) will receive links to each performance in advance. 

The Committee is grateful to the fabulous artists who have participated in creating this virtual season and to the Library and the Weston Media Center for the technological wizardry that enables us to share our season with you.
