Monadnock Music


2019 Summer Festival Schedule

Monadnock Music presents a three month music festival each summer with two types of world-class concerts. Our Ticketed Concerts offer exceptional large-scale productions of symphonies, operas, solo performers, traveling choirs and famous composers. The Village Concerts showcase the Monadnock Music Piano Trio, Quartet, and a selection of visiting smaller groups for "pay-what-you-can" public concerts that are open to all.

In addition to our summer concerts, click here to see the delightful music events we are presenting all year long! And be sure to sign up for our newsletter (top of the this page) so you don't miss a thing.
