The Massachusetts ME/CFS & FM Association, a 501(c)3 founded in 1985, exists to meet the needs of patients with ME (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis), CFS (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome) or FM (Fibromyalgia), their families and loved ones. The Massachusetts ME/CFS & FM Association works to educate health-care providers and the general public regarding these severely-disabling physical illnesses. We also support patients and their families and advocate for more effective treatment and research.

The New View Saxophone Quartet brings a fresh perspective to an ensemble of 4 saxophones playing music from the jazz and classical worlds. From century-old vaudeville melodies, to cutting edge 20th and 21st century classical works, to jazz standards and brand-new originals, you will hear a compelling mix of sonorities, moods, tone colors and grooves, all played with passion, skill, and intensity.

The members of the New View Saxophone Quartet are professional saxophonists living in or near New York City. Marc, Mark, Carl and Jay have spent decades and traveled the globe playing with the best of the best in the worlds of Jazz, Broadway and Commercial music. Now they bring that experience to bear in a new jazz/chamber music ensemble, the New View Saxophone Quartet.

This event is part of our Spring Campaign, which supports our direct services to people living with ME/CFS and FM. Please make a donation to support this work and become a member! We are stronger together!


Notice about names

The Massachusetts ME/CFS & FM Association would like to clarify the use of the various acronyms for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), Chronic Fatigue & Immune Dysfunction Syndrome (CFIDS) and  Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME) on this site. When we generate our own articles on the illness, we will refer to it as ME/CFS, the term now generally used in the United States. When we are reporting on someone else’s report, we will use the term they use. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) and other federal agencies, including the CDC, are currently using ME/CFS. 

Massachusetts ME/CFS & FM Association changed its name in July, 2018, to reflect this consensus.
