One of the unexpected delights of attending Jeff and Joel’s House Party in Branford, Connecticut this past October was meeting Carolyn Newberger. Carolyn attended with her husband, tubist extraordinaire Dr. Eli Newberger—and she is a fine musician in her own right. She is also the creator of the drawings on this page. Her illustrations often appear on the Berkshire Edge website (theberkshireedge.com) as an accompaniment to the performance reviews she and Eli write for the online publication. These pieces were drawn as the music was performed on October 9, 2016. You may find more information about her work as a child psychologist, her music, and her art at carolynnewberger.com.
