Old-Fashioned Band Concert on Saturday to Benefit Lowell Mason House

A benefit concert to raise money to help restore the childhood home of Lowell Mason who was born in Medfield.

 

An old-fashioned band concert will be held on Saturday, Sept. 22, from 2:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. at Hinkley Park to raise money to restore the birthplace of Lowell Mason, the founder of music education in the nation's public school system. 

All donations made will go toward the restoration of the Lowell Mason House that was moved in 2011 from Adams Street to Green Street (in eyesight of Saturday's concert).

About the Lowell Mason House Foundation

The Lowell Mason Foundation was founded in October of 2010 when a group of concerned Medfield citizens and music educators from around the country came together with the desire to preserve the legacy of Lowell Mason the Father of Music Education in America. Lowell Mason's birthplace was in jeopardy of being demolished by a developer to be forever lost for future generations. Within months the Foundation generated enough support both locally and nationally to secure a new location for the home and move it, before a town demolition delay ran out, to town owned land next to Hinckley pond in Medfield, MA.
