Andy Truscott speaks with Carol Dennis (Executive Director) and Richard Scalenghe (Board President) of Coastal Concerts.

In 1999 a few classical music enthusiasts decided it was time to bring world-renowned classical performers to their new hometown of Lewes, Delaware instead of traveling back to Philadelphia, Washington DC, or New York.  They were not alone in longing to hear live concerts by internationally acclaimed artists in an intimate setting close to home.

For 24 years this volunteer-led organization has thrived! Each season they present six live performances at Bethel United Methodist Church in Lewes, Delaware and draw audience members from the entire Mid-Atlantic region. In addition, CoCo encourages classical music appreciation through community outreach, educational activities and awarding scholarships to deserving young musicians.
