Thank you to Nathan Lesser, former faculty member and a great friend of ECMI, for sharing this video. This is an arrangement of a 16th century choral piece for 3 violins and 3 violas by Palestrina. Nathan plays all 6 parts! https://drive.google.com/file/d/1hxdjnZifiYoKQ5oO5uyIR7uy1821ZTTt/view?usp=drivesdk

At Ellsworth Community Music Institute (ECMI), we create a sense of community through music by providing instruction and performance opportunities for people of all ages, musical abilities, and backgrounds.

Our values are:

  • artistic excellence
  • access for all, and
  • musical friendship

Within the walls of the new General Bryant E. Moore Community Center, sounds ranging from bold beginners to life-long learners to accomplished professionals are heard.  Everyone is made to feel welcome and to be a part of this nurturing, encouraging, and supportive community. Our students experience the joy of playing music in small ensembles, form deep and lasting friendships, benefit from mentors, and share the wonder of performance.

Nothing creates community quite like music.  Welcome to Ellsworth Community Music Institute!
