Carrie’s Teas! Private afternoon parties with music, mingling and noshing, hosted by WCM fans for their friends. Free and informal, these lunch/talk/play dates designed to introduce WCM to new people, will serve up a sample of our world-class music and chat up all the cool things coming up at WCM this season. Artistic Co-Director cellist Caroline Stinson and WCM musicians present these events. If you would like to sponsor one like this in your home for people you know, email us here.



Music in the Barn returns June 21 at a private country home in Bethel.  WCM’S early summer benefit serves up gourmet dining al fresco and live chamber music in a charming renovated barn. The evening begins at 4pm with a glass of wine, a little mingling on the garden terrace, and a feast of solos, duos and trios by Bach, Bartok, Berio, Boismortier (hmmm, lots of B’s!), Ran and Stravinsky, plus an improv or two to cleanse the palate. Featured WCM artists are Judith Pearce, flute; Pavel Vinnitsky, clarinet; Nurit Pacht & Andrew Waggoner violins, and they will join the guests for supper after the program. Our patron host and wonderful hostess chef promise a second feast of delectable homemade, buffet supper choices, including salmon mousse, quiches, a variety of hearty breads, ratatouille, tempting salads ranging from the garden greens to rice to beans to pasta selections, and an array of authentic German desserts like apple tart, crumble cake, Austrian tart and much more! Reservations are required for this always fabulous event with great music, delicious food and fun camaraderie, and are $75 per person.
