A Musician's Legacy
Margaret "Peg" Cawley (1921-2015) was an accomplished musician and music teacher whose instruments included the flute, recorder, harpsichord, and viola da gamba. She taught music at SUNY Oneonta, where she also led choral and chamber music groups and orchestras. After she retired and moved to Concord, Cawley and her special friend Jean London were frequent attendees at Concord Community Music School concerts.
Now, her commitment to music lives on in her generous bequest to the Music School. Peggy Senter, president of the Music School, wrote this tribute.
I first met Peg and Jean after they moved to Concord and became frequent audience members at Music School concerts. Peg was a discerning audience member, so we always felt honored to earn her praise.

From the Music School
to the Royal Conservatoire:
Fiddler Madeleine Stewart
Music School alumna Madeleine Stewart is studying traditional music at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland (RCS). She sent us this update.
The community that surrounds these places is so important. Students and teachers are friends and family, peers and mentors.
At my senior concert at CCMS, I felt so much at home on the Recital Hall stage; the audience was familiar and the musicians with me were my friends. At RCS I have found the same kind of home in another place, and I wouldn't have discovered it without having this community in Concord to begin with.
Stewart performs at the Royal Concert Hall in Glasgow.
