About Newburyport
map
Local information about Newburyport, MA and the businesses that call Newburyport home including the local restaurants, real estate agents, hotels, antique shops and tourist attractions. Newburyport is on of the smallest cities in the state of Massachusetts, but it is certainly one of the most beautiful oceanside community!

The city has a strong tourist industry including a favorite destination for art lovers. Here you will find a most charming and large downtown area full of art galleries, specialty shops, historic B&B's, and terrific restaurants.

Newburyport is home to many large and gracious Federalist homes that were built by fortunes acquired by whaling and clipper ship owners living during the 19th century. Don't forget to visit Plum Island, an oceanfront wildlife refuge which also contains lovely beachfront and adorable summer homes and cottages.

Newburyport is very proud of its history and justifiably so, Newburyport staged the first tea party in opposition to England's tax on tea and it was well before the more famous one in Boston Mass. Newburyport is also proud to be the birth place of the United States Coast Guard since the first ship commissioned for the Coast guard was built here and named the frigate Massachusetts.

In the early 1960's, Newburyport used state and federal funds to launch a massive redevelopment scheme to reclaim its historic neighborhoods made of granite, cobblestones and to update their utilities such as water and sewer. At the same time in order to prepare for a profitable present and future, Newburyport built an industrial park which now houses many diversified small industries.

Many residents commute daily to Boston via Route 95 and on the commuter rail. Residents are proud of the fact that many families have lived in the city for generations, but they are just as proud of the fact that the city welcomes newcomers and the new ideas they bring. So come to Newburyport and experience the history, beauty and hospitality!

Newburyport Choral Society Spring Concert, "All Hail Music"
NCS Spring Concert, “All Hail Music”

The Newburyport Choral Society will present their annual Spring Concert  “All Hail Music”.

Saturday, May 2nd at 8 pm, and Sunday, May 3rd at 2:30 pm

Under the direction of Dr. George Case, the NCS Spring Concert in May will offer audiences a joyous program of choral music with professional orchestra and soloists.

The first half of the Spring Concert program features the music of Ralph Vaughn Williams, opening with his Five Mystical Songs in which the chorus and baritone soloist offer a musical landscape that is both serene and exuberant. His radiantly beautiful Serenade to Music completes the first half of the concertIn this moving celebration of music’s intimate power, Vaughan Williams created a touching nocturnal scene with lyrical poetry drawn from Act V of Shakespeare’s Merchant of Venice. The impact of the work was so forceful that the composer Sergei Rachmaninoff, a master of romantic composition in his own right, openly wept as he heard the premiere performance in 1938.

NCS will perform Mozart’s Great Mass in C Minor in the second half of the concertWith its magnificent and mighty choruses, ornate solos, and solo instrumental segments, the Mass in C Minor was unlike any church music of its time. It has been given the title “Great” because it is considered to be one of Mozart’s most masterful works for orchestra and chorus, alongside his famous Requiem. Described in the choral literature as elegant, powerful, and bursting with energy, The Great Mass in C Minor has continued to bring joy to audiences for more than 230 years and is a fitting tribute to our Spring Concert theme “All Hail Music.” As always, this NCS Concert will include a professional orchestra and soloists.

Good Enough for Government Work

Alan Solomont (Dean, Tufts University College of Citizenship and Public Service)
Jim Stergios (Executive Director, Pioneer Institute)
David Paleologos (Director, Suffolk University Political Research Center)

With so many representatives of the people pushing policies that the people don’t like, one wonders how we got to this point. If we insist on a modicum of qualification for all who determine how the state runs our lives – including ourselves – it follows that we will reap better results. But should a citizen have to pass a test on current events to vote? Or should our members of Congress have to pass a simple science test to serve on a science-oriented committee? Most importantly, would this method of civic testing break through voter apathy, particularly among young adults, or further alienate them? Let’s review whether Americans are savvy enough to participate in a democracy and, if not, how we might adjust our civic processes to encourage us all to rise to the occasion.

'Movies at the Meeting House': Banned Books on the Big Screen
Join us for the first annual 'Movies at the Meeting House' series. During 2015, Old South Meeting House will show three films based on books that were banned in various locations throughout the US, including Boston. Promoting free speech is a key part of Old South Meeting House's mission - and our free speech policy was formally announced in the 1920s, when the banning of multiple books, magazines and plays had spawned the term "Banned in Boston." Soon after implementing its free speech policy, Old South Meeting House hosted a forum on the banning of Eugene O'Neill's play Strange Interlude in Boston. In honor of this literary and free speech history, we have chosen to celebrate works once silenced for their controversial content in our first 'Movies at the Meeting House' series. Grab a friend and come enjoy the historic interior of Old South Meeting House like never before! March 26 at 6:30pm: To Kill a Mockingbird Admission $8, OSMH Members $4. Tickets available at http://osmhmarch26-15.bpt.me Light refreshments will be available for purchase Doors open at 5:45pm for members, 6:00pm for general public.
