This special concert is our only fund raising event in 2015. We will also be celebrating a significant milestone at EEC: our 100th performance since our founding 4 years ago!

On Sunday, December 6th at 4:00 at Reynolds Hall (51 Concord Street, Peterborough), Electric Earth Concerts will hold a concert and champagne reception featuring the “impassioned, dynamic and engaging” Verona String Quartet, currently in residence at Juilliard. Joined by cellist and Juilliard faculty Caroline Stinson, the quintet will play Schubert’s C Major Quintet D. 956, his great final masterpiece.

Help us celebrate our 100th concert with a beautiful performance, and drink a toast to the end of our fourth season. Jonathan and Laura will tell you about our 2016 plans, including some very exciting projects that we know many of you will want to be part of.

The music alone will make it worth your while, but we hope you’ll take the opportunity to renew your yearly support for of EEC. The minimum donation for this event is $50 per person and is fully tax deductable.
