MUSIC AT SAINT MARY’S (MASM) is a non-profit organization whose purpose is to bring free classical music concerts and events of exceptionally high caliber to the South Amboy community and its surrounding neighbors. Operating under the auspices of Saint Mary Roman Catholic Church, MASM seeks to broaden the artistic and cultural experiences of community members through its diverse recitals and concerts. Pre-concert lectures and post-concert “Meet-the-Artists” receptions add to both the edifying and pleasurable aspects of the series.
The series is run by its Executive Director, Christopher M. C. Deibert, and by the governing Board of Directors who see to the general management of the series. Under their guidance and expertise, the community benefits from 12 to 14 different and unique musical experiences ranging from solo performances to small ensembles to full-blown orchestral productions. A highlight of series is the annual Young Artists Recital for exceptionally talented New Jersey musicians under the age of 18. Many of these young musicians have also been featured on NPR’s From the Top and in other national venues.
