Winsor Music is governed by a seven-member board, with day-to-day operations being managed by a part-time Operations Manager. Founder and Artistic Director Peggy Pearson has been solo oboist with the Emmanuel Chamber Orchestra for 40 years, and has a long association with these and other musicians of international circles. Accordingly, Winsor Music, as a presenting organization, has been granted access to an exceptional group of performing artists. Peggy Pearson’s passion for chamber music and commitment to Winsor Music have been the driving force behind the organization’s success.
"One cannot adequately praise oboist Peggy Pearson... Bach is, by now, in her DNA, and each time.....she had a prominent part the result was astonishment. She was stupendous all evening..."
