MUSIC ON THE GROUNDS! Outdoors concerts presented by KTM&HC and RSO
Keeler Tavern Museum & History Center (KTM&HC) and Ridgefield Symphony Orchestra (RSO) are excited to present a summer series of weekend performances, outdoors on the grounds of the KTM&HC campus.
The concerts will be held on Sunday afternoons on the patio of the Museum’s Visitor Center on Main Street in Ridgefield. Performers will include musicians from the RSO, along with other local artists and bands. “We think this is a great opportunity for musicians, who can’t play indoor venues right now, to perform. It is also a wonderful way to take advantage of the warm weather to invite people to enjoy fantastic live music, safely and at a social distance,” says RSO Executive Director Laurie Kenagy.
Says Hildi Grob, Executive Director at KTM&HC, “We’re excited to collaborate with the RSO on this program to culturally enrich Ridgefield’s summer of 2020! Inspired by the success of Make Music Day back in June we wanted to continue to be able to offer musicians a chance to perform live outdoors on our historic grounds. We will once again pop up tents and make available our speaker system – but other than that it’s really up to the musicians and anyone wanting to listen to live music on a Sunday afternoon to make it a success. We ask anyone attending to please adhere to the posted COVID-19 guidelines for social distancing, face coverings and one-way traffic.”
The concerts will begin on Sunday, July 19 and run for seven weekends, through the end of August. Each week’s performance will be announced on Hamlet Hub and through KTM&HC and RSO social media, so keep an eye out for weekly updates! Bring a lawn chair or stop by while strolling on Main Street, and enjoy music and the summer in Ridgefield!
