COLLINSVILLE, Conn. – The popular “Music For a Joyous Season” concert returns to the Collinsville Congregational Church for the eighth consecutive year on Sunday, Dec. 11, at 4 p.m. Presented by the Maxwell Shepherd Memorial Arts Fund as part of the Shepherd Music Series, the concert has become a holiday tradition in Collinsville.

“Daniel Lee and Friends,” a chamber ensemble of acclaimed musicians, will present a program of music from the Baroque era, featuring the works of masters such as Biber, Bach, Vivaldi and Telemann. Lee, a violinist hailed by the New York Times for his “ravishing vehemence,” has enjoyed a varied career as a soloist, concertmaster and teacher.

Lee will be joined by “friends” who have appeared nationally both as soloists and members of chamber groups such as the Quodlibet Ensemble, the Sebastians, New Morse Code, the Amphion String Quartet and the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center. The nine-member ensemble features a variety of stringed instruments – violin, violone, harpsichord, viola, viola da gamba, cello – as well as oboe.

The Maxwell Shepherd Memorial Arts Fund is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the fine and performing arts. As with all events sponsored by the Fund, admission is free and all are welcome.
