Music Committee

The Music Committee of the Friends of the Weston Public Library oversees the presentation of an annual concert series in the Library’s Community Room. The Committee’s mission is “to promote the appreciation and love of music and to expand the cultural opportunities available in Weston by enabling the Library to present a variety of musical programs which are free and open to the public.”  

This Season, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Music Committee is hosting a Virtual Concert Series of nine performances beginning this December and running through next April. Concerts will be accessible through this webpage, the Weston Media Center’s Videos On Demand service, and on local television channels: Verizon Channel 45 and Comcast Channel 9. After each première, concerts will continue to be available online and on the local cable channels for viewers to enjoy. Audience members on the Committee’s email list (see link below to sign up) will receive links to each performance in advance.

The Committee is grateful to the fabulous artists who have participated in creating this virtual season and to the Library and the Weston Media Center for the technological wizardry that enables us to share our season with you.

If you are interested in applying to perform during an upcoming season of the WPL Music Committee concert series, please submit some basic information and you will be contacted shortly by a member of the music committee.
