After a long hiatus due to the Covid- 19 historical pandemic, we are cautiously optimistic to announce our 2021 - 2022 Essex Chamber Music Players concert season. It will features exciting music premieres and great classical works. This season - more than ever we are counting on your support. ECMP is a nonprofit group in residence at the Northern Essex Community College campus in Haverhill. Due to service cutbacks at NECC, we are now using outside graphic designers to produce our programs and fundraising materials. We also are looking for new ways to economize, including handling our own publicity.

Fortunately, NECC has graciously agreed to provide us with the use of our concert hall in the Hartleb Center free of charge again this season. Going forward, we are looking into additional concert venues so that more people throughout the area may have the chance to hear our talented musicians and innovative programs. We also hope to bring our educational program, The Life and Poetry of Anne Bradstreet, America’s First Poet, to the Haverhill middle schools in the coming months. The program is funded through a grant from the Haverhill Cultural Council. In other news, ECMP released the premiere volume of Local Cultural History Through Music: The Merrimack Valley, Volume 1, in 2021.See Recording on this site for more info.
