Dear Friends of the MacBeth Concert Series.

Saturday evening’s concert by the Halcyon String Quartet was a thrilling climax to the MacBeth 2019 season, which was replete with breathtaking highlights and magical musical moments. It is, I think, impossible to pick a favorite among the eight eclectic concerts that graced our island throughout the summer. The MacBeth Steering Committee is proud and relieved that we seemed to have lived up to the very high standards that Mac Passano and Beth Howe established during their 19 years of stewardship of the series.

We could not have managed this without the incredibly generous backing of the Chebeague community—support, I am delighted to report, that allowed us to meet the ambitious fund-raising goal we set at the beginning of the season. Our gratitude to you and all of the other supporters of this year’s series is boundless.

While these inspiring musical memories are, as Billy Strayhorn wrote, still burning inside our brains, our Steering Committee is already beginning to plan for the 2020 MacBeth season. We encourage you to contact us with suggestions for how we can make the series even better next year.

Thank you so much.
