Summer Series Announced!

An integral part of Gloucester summer is almost here. The Gloucester Meetinghouse Foundation’s Summer Concert Series, Music on Meetinghouse Green, featuring 9 free concerts, takes place from July 6 to September 7, 2018. The family-friendly concerts, now an iconic part of Gloucester’s summer music scene, have something for every musical taste, including be-bop, Brazilian ‘forro’ dance music, soul, jazz and rhythm and blues.

All concerts take place at Gloucester Meetinghouse Green, at the corner of Church and Middle Street in Gloucester. Bring folding chairs or blankets. If it rains the concerts will take place inside the Meetinghouse. Each concert will be catered by a local food vendor, providing fresh and tasty dinners or snacks, often reflecting the origins of the music.

In the spirit of giving to the community each concert is partnered with a Cape Ann non-profit organization. The public is invited to make a free-will donation (bring cash/check.)
