On our recent trip to Italy we visited Pompeii, the ancient Roman city that was buried under 20 feet of ash and pumice when Mt. Vesuvius erupted in 79 AD.  When we arrived, we discovered that there were a number of wildfires burning on the slopes of Vesuvius. At times, giant plumes of smoke floated above the ruins, perhaps giving us some sense of what the doomed inhabitants of Pompeii saw on that fateful day.

The Cultural Center at Rocky Neck
6 Wonson Street, Gloucester, MA 01930

ROCKY NECK ART COLONY presents the Manchester Summer Chamber Music Concert at The Cultural Center at Rocky Neck, Thursday August 17. Doors at 6:30 PM, music begins at 7 PM.

Manchester Summer Chamber Music (MSCM) celebrates its ninth season this August. Combining the magic of warm summer nights with dynamic interpretations of both chamber music gems and vibrant new music, MSCM offers an exciting performance that welcome audiences of all backgrounds and ages. MSCM is dedicated to sharing classical music of the highest caliber with the communities of the North Shore. Twenty-one musicians from around the world will come together to create a joyful, engaging concert, as audiences have come to expect from MSCM.

MSCM was founded in 2009 by Manchester native Sage Cole and Andover native Lorna Tsai.The childhood friends spent their summers exploring the North Shore’s beaches and playing music festivals across the country. The pair decided to combine these beloved activities to create MSCM: a music festival on the North Shore where musicians and appreciators can share in the beauty of the music, region, and community.

This season will be the first time MSCM performs in Gloucester. MSCM at Rocky Neck is a joint presentation between MSCM and the Rocky Neck Art Colony and will be held at the Cultural Center at Rocky Neck (6 Wonson Street, Gloucester MA). MSCM musicians, including renowned contralto Emily Marvosh, will perform a selection of pieces by American composers, such as Pulitzer-award-winner Caroline Shaw’s “Cant voi l’aube” and Antonin Dvorak’s String Quartet No. 12 in F Major, “American.”

“A Manchester Music Festival concert is what chamber music is all about — intimate and joyful performances of great music.”
– Jim Lowe, Southern Vermont Arts Center

“Manchester Summer Chamber Music has established its own identity after eight seasons.” – Keith Powers, Metrowest Daily News

Happy 90th Birthday Roy Spittle

We were honored to spend last night celebrating Roy Spittles 90th Birthday.  Roy is a man with many stories to tell and my husband and he shared memories of their days at Gloucester High School when Roy was the Electrical theory teacher in the Vocational school and Neil was his student for 4 years.   He helped educate numerous Electrical contractors who are in business today.   You can tell by talking to all his family and friends how beloved he is as a true patriarch and mentor.  Mayor Sefatia Romeo Thekin presented him with a proclamation from the City.   Happiest of Birthdays Roy!
