In continuing our mission to enhance the quality of life in our community, the WIS began the Newton Piano Summit with the goal of bringing the finest artists available to perform concerts free to the public. Now going on our 5th year, we are proud of our success and being joined by others including the Newton and Massachusetts Cultural Councils, The Paul & Edith Babson Foundation, the Village Bank, and Advance Auto in Nonantum to help underwrite this series.  This year the concerts will take place online.
If Music were an Olympic sport, all of the artists presented at the Newton Piano Summit would be gold medalists. The Summit is our newest tradition from the Waban Improvement Society presenting professional world-class artists in an intimate setting – entirely free to the public. Join the Summit Facebook page to keep alerted to videos and performances.
