Start the weekend right with great music in a relaxed setting

Happy Hours are here again!

For our eleventh season we are putting the “happy” back into Happy Hour Chamber Concerts. We’re serving wine and snacks at our concerts, and we have increased our maximum seating capacity to 80 persons. We continue to offer on-line ticket sales through PayPal for $20, and we offer at-the-door ticket purchases for $22. However, all in-person ticket sales close if and when we reach our maximum capacity, so the only way you can be sure of having a guaranteed seat is if you purchase your tickets before the concert date. We continue to offer live-streaming of our concerts for $10; access tickets are available for purchase through this website until noon of concert day.

Facial masking is at your discretion, and there is no checking for COVID vaccination status. We do ask you to come to our concerts fully vaccinated or with a negative COVID test and, of course, symptom-free. Our policies and protocols may change in light of shifts in the pandemic, and we’ll let you know if that’s the case. Our chief goal is to keep our audience and artists safe so that we can continue to bring you the music you love.

If you want to expand the “happy” the evening of the concert, we suggest you consider adding a dinner to your itinerary. You can click here to see a list of restaurants in the vicinity of our concert venue.

We are excited about the artists who have agreed to be part of our season, and we hope that you will be able to join us for wonderful music in a great setting.
