Now a cherished town tradition, the concerts appeal to residents of all ages who enjoy being with family and friends on the Historical Society’s sumptuous lawn and historic gardens.

“The concert series which we designed to build on our mission of strengthening community connections has been extremely popular and is a great benefit for members who attend free,” said Dianne Niklaus, director of marketing and communications for Greenwich Historical Society. “We are offering a wide range of music styles for broad appeal, and we are especially excited to announce an additional, free performance by Demolition Brass Band as part of Greenwich’s town-wide Juneteenth Celebration of Freedom on Saturday, June 22, from 11 am – 2 pm.

“Once again, we are privileged to have The First Bank of Greenwich as presenting sponsor, with additional support from Cross Private Client Insurance, Edgehill, Waterstone and Contadino Architects – local organizations who share in our commitment for fostering strong community ties,” added Niklaus.
