A pre-show reception will begin at 3:00pm with light fare and artist’s showcase.

Tickets are $40 and include the price of refreshments.

Special combo ticket for $55, includes entrance to our event in Woodbridge on March 19th.

Massaro Community Farm is a 57-acre organic vegetable farm on the border of Woodbridge and Ansonia. The farm sells its produce to ~225 seasonal subscribers each year, to nearby restaurants, and at farmer’s markets. The farm also provides educational opportunities for all ages, and specifically for elementary-aged children who haven’t been exposed to where and how their food is grown. Expanding educational programming at the farm includes an after-school and vacation series, field trips, summer camp, farm tours, and adult workshops. The farm donates at least 10% of its annual harvest to hunger relief, which averages 6,200 pounds each year.

The Paul Winter Consort, celebrating a legacy of 53 years, has performed over 2,000 concerts in 52 countries of the world. The Consort will include Paul Winter, soprano saxophone; Eugene Friesen, cello; Jeff Holmes, keyboards; and Michael Wimberly on percussion, with special guest, gospel singer Theresa Thomason, who resides in Shelton, CT.

The Church of the Assumption is one of the undiscovered architectural and acoustic treasures of New England. Built in the 1880s, the church has spectacular acoustics and will include its pipe organ as part of the musical program. The church serves the community of Ansonia through its ministry, music, food outreach and elementary school. Music ministry at the church is led by Music Director Tony Burke.
