Masterworks is an online series  of mini-concerts streamed on our YouTube Channel. There is a treasured archive of recorded Bay Chamber performances, spanning decades of concerts and featuring so many astonishing artists and ensembles, from Andrew Wolf and the Vermeer Quartet performing in the 1970’s right up to Stephan Jackiw and Conrad Tao performing in 2018. The Masterworks Series is a wonderful opportunity to share a curated sample of these superb recordings by streaming a cherished recording each Thursday evening. The music is accompanied by images from Bay Chamber and Rockport’s archives and the work of some of Maine’s most innovative painters and photographers.
