About The Westerlies:
Formed in 2011, the self-described "accidental brass quartet" takes its name from the prevailing winds that travel from the West to the East. Equally at home in concert halls and living rooms, The Westerlies navigate a wide array of venues and projects.
The Westerlies' 2019-20 season includes engagements at Dumbarton Concerts, Soundings: New Music at the Nasher, Earshot Jazz Festival, Mayo Performing Arts Center, and Choate Rosemary Hall.
Education and community engagement are core elements of The Westerlies' mission. Each season, the ensemble reaches thousands of students around the country with their innovative and inspiring assemblies and masterclasses.
Noe Music Kids concerts engage kids through fun, short performances with a carefully curated repertoire performed by skilled, energetic musicians who specialize in bringing music to life for young listeners. The performances may be followed by short demonstrations and opportunities to touch and feel instruments, as well as opportunities to ask questions.
TICKETS are $15-40, FREE for children 3 and under. ($15 General Admission / $40 Family Pass (good for 4 people)).
