The Mary Potterton Memorial Concert Series 2023
In Dedication
Mary Potterton

Mary Potterton (1905-1993) came from a musical family; Papa played the trombone, brother John, the violin and she the piano, while Oogi Wa-Wa (the cat) sang along (“Only I never would practice after your Grandpa bought the Player-Piano; that put my nose out of joint!”) Ever fascinated with the concept of SummerKeys, she helped it begin and always loved to hear everything about it. The fruits of her interest live on in this beautiful summer-place for music, and in a series of concerts offered to the community in her memory.

— Her Loving Son —
Bruce Potterton, 1998
