The Concord Band

The Concord Band performs regularly at its permanent home, the Performing Arts Center at 51 Walden Street in Concord, at its summer home at Fruitlands Museum in Harvard, Massachusetts, and has also performed summer concerts at several towns in the Greater Boston and MetroWest regions. The sixty-five volunteer members of the Band represent many area communities and a wide variety of professions. Visit the Band’s blog for more information.

The Concord Players

The Concord Players mount three major productions a year with multiple performances of each play. Recent seasons have included Barefoot in the Park, Funny Girl, Spamalot, The Drowsy Chaperone, and The Sound of Music. The Players’ staging of Little Women is regarded by many as Concord’s Passion Play.

The Concord Orchestra

The Concord Orchestra plays a dozen concerts each season including a Family Concert and two Pops weekends. Each year one of our concerts features a performer from one of the Boston area schools who has won our Young Artist Competition. The winner also receives a cash prize from the Ehlers Memorial Scholarship Fund, which was founded in memory of Charles and Arlene Ehlers.

Opera51

Opera51 raises funds to support 51 Walden through opera performances, associated corporate sponsorships, program ads, individual donations, and through special events like Gala Gatherings and Opera Favorites. Proceeds contribute valuable funds to the maintenance and operation of the facility, a community resource supporting hundreds of local residents each week throughout the year.
