Monadnock Music


Village Concerts

Showcasing the Monadnock Music Piano Trio, Monadnock Music String Quartet, and a selection of visiting smaller groups, we offer Free Classical Music Concerts in delightful intimate and historical settings. Our mission is to make classical music accessible to all, and we ask for a donation from participants to help pay for the costs of our programming.

Join us for a reception after each Village Concert. Doors open 30 minutes prior to each concert.
