CALVARY’S COMMUNITY CONCERT SERIES
As of November 2020, Calvary’s Music and Arts Committee has determined it is in the best interest of musicians and our concert patrons to again postpone the concerts scheduled in January 2021 through May 2021, due to COVID-19. At this time, we are hopeful and are planning to resume concerts in September 2021, pending the public health situation at that time. Should this change, this page will be updated and those on our email list will be notified.
We are working on rescheduling these concerts – please see below for updated information.
If you are not receiving Community Concert Series emails, we’d love to add you to our list. Your email will not be used for anything other than concert notices. To join our email list, please use the form at the bottom of the page.
Your continued support of the Community Concert Series is greatly appreciated. Stay safe and be well so that we can see you soon!
Presented by the Music and Arts Ministry of Calvary United Methodist Church and support is provided through grants from The Frederick Arts Council, The Delaplaine Foundation, and The Donald C. Linton Fund.
All concerts are free and open to the public.
Concerts begin at 3:00 p.m. Doors open at 2:30
Please note: Concert dates are firm at the time of posting and rarely change, but changes or cancellations by the artist/group and/or inclement weather may happen due to circumstances beyond our control. Email list subscribers will receive notice by email, and changes will be posted on this web page.
