Celebrating its 28th anniversary, Close Encounters With Music will partner with the Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center and Classical WMHT-FM to present an Opera Gala concert December 5, 2020–from the Mahaiwe stage–with the illuminating and personal insights from artistic director Yehuda Hanani plus an Intermission chat with guest musicians.

This performance will be offered free online, with support from our generous donors. Donations of any amount are appreciated to keep our organization strong until we can all gather safely again in concert halls for live music. Stay tuned for more details!
