From a single concert in 1986, Music from Salem has grown to a year-round series that includes concerts, open rehearsals, children’s workshops, seminars for professionally-bound musicians, listening clubs and more. Performers of international reputation live and work together at the Brown Farm in Salem, exploring both the intimate and dramatic aspects of chamber music. Essential to the spirit of MFS is the belief that artist and audience compliment one another — our mission is to nurture this relationship through all of our endeavors.
