Moxie Strings concert 3/19 at MHS

From the Medfield Music Association –

The Moxie Strings to perform in Medfield


The nationally known music of The Moxie Strings is coming to Medfield for a special performance from 7 to 9 p.m. on Thursday, March 19 in the MHS Lowell Mason Auditorium.


Tickets for The Moxie Strings are on sale at Park Street Books — $10 for adults, $5 for students and senior citizens; they are also available online at


The trio – known for its “electrifying combination” of a fiddler, cellist and drummer/percussionist – will travel from Michigan to perform for the Medfield community and conduct day-time clinics for Medfield orchestra students.


“This is a unique opportunity to see a nationally known music group right here in Medfield. Fans of live music will not want to miss it. Prior to the concert our music students will be treated to valuable hands-on learning from the nationally acclaimed act,” said Brenna Hayden, Orchestra Director for Medfield Public Schools.


The Moxie Strings consists of fiddler, Diana Ladio; cellist, Alison Lynn; and drummer/percussionist Fritz McGirr. They are known for their “feel-good melodies and foot-stomping, rock-influenced rhythms”, and their ability to put a fresh and enticing spin on Celtic and Americana music.


Ladio, Lynn and McGirr hold Bachelor of Music degrees in music performance and music education, which have given each the technical foundation to explore the limits of his/her instrument, and helped the group build a reputation for musical excellence. The Moxie Strings write the majority of their pieces, and also arrange traditional tunes from many countries.


The Moxie Strings have taught enrichment clinics in over 60 schools throughout the U.S., and have also presented on their research and methodologies to many teachers at music education professional development conferences. Through their clinics Ladio and Lunn aim to create equipped creative well rounded musicians.


The Moxie Strings event is supported in part by a grant from the Medfield Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency. The Medfield Music Association is also helping to sponsor the program.

Free concert at UCC Saturday at 7PM

Email today from David Domeshek –

Wanted to let you know about a fun concert in Medfield this Saturday at 7pm, featuring some really good musicians playing an “eclectic” program of pop, R&B, “great American songbook” standards, gospel and blues. Heidi Willson, a wonderful singer, will front a 9-piece band comprising professional musicians — oh yes, and me (the amateur who’s in way over his head!) — many of whom Heidi knows from her days in the U.S. Navy Band (no slouch outfit).


The concert begins at 7pm sharp in the sanctuary at UCC Medfield (496 Main Street – Rte. 109), and will run about an hour. Best of all, it’s FREE.


If you’re around and available, hope to see you there!
