2022 Cultural Series
All tickets include wine, beer, and refreshments on the Ames Chapel’s lower level and meets-and-greets with the talent. Photo ID and proof of vaccination must be presented at the door for admittance.
Cassandre McKinley and three-piece band
No paper tickets. All names will be checked off at the door.
Music critic John Crossett says that McKinley “carefully straddles the line between jazz and pop without ever drifting too far to one side or the other. She can sing anything set in front of her, and sing it like she owns it.” Jazz Times Magazine speaks of her “warm caramel-flavored voice — rather like Carole King via Nancy Wilson, with a layer of Aretha Franklin icing.” Comments the Boston Globe, “There’s a music style called JazzSoul…and our anointed queen is Boston native Cassandre McKinley,” adding, “the singer’s version of I Wish It Would Rain is moving enough to bring precipitation to the desert.”

The show starts at 7:30 pm, but doors open at 7 so you can have a drink and settle in.
Photo ID and proof of vaccination must be presented at the door for admittance, and masks must be worn during performances (but not during the lower-level after-parties).
The Dead of Winter Arts series is made possible with a grant from the Hingham Cultural Council, which operates under the auspices of the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
