Summer Concert Series 2018

We are very excited to announce the return of our Summer Concert Series and Screen Door Festival.

The Summer Concert Series

The Summer Concert Series is the cornerstone of Bay Chamber’s 50+ year history of presenting chamber music in Rockport. Artists from all over the world return each summer to perform in our two local venues, the beloved Rockport Opera House and Union Hall, offering intimate concerts in an informal setting.

Thursday Night Series
The weekly anchor and musical jewel of our summer program takes place in the historic Rockport Opera House with excellent acoustics, balcony and orchestra reserved seating and it’s air-conditioned! Six concerts comprise the Thursday subscription package.

Café Nights
The Café Nights series offers even more interactive and adventurous musical experiences, often including lighter repertoire. Here you can experience great music while sipping select wines. Union Hall performances are intimate, engaging and lots of fun! This subscription package includes nine evening concerts in Union Hall.

We look forward to seeing you, your family, and your friends as we share unique and inspiring musical experiences with renowned musicians from around the globe.
