She has received advanced degrees in Belgium and Italy and is currently working on her doctoral degree in Piano Performance at Boston University. Ms. Cho, a native of South Korea, received her Bachelor of Music Degree from Pusan National University in South Korea and her Master's Degree from New York University.

2021/2022 Season

What is the 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.”  

This Season, due to continuing concerns about COVID-19, the Music Committee will host a Virtual Concert Series of four performances beginning this October and running through January of 2022. In addition, the Committee has planned a spring season of four more concerts, beginning in March of 2022 and running through April. Depending on the status of COVID-19 this spring, it is possible that those concerts, and our annual MusicFest in May, may be held in person.

Our video concerts will be accessible through this webpage, on 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.

If you are interested in applying to perform during an upcoming season of the WPL Music Committee concert series, please submit some basic information and you will be contacted shortly by a member of the music committee.
