2016 Concert Schedule

The current concert schedule is shown below. Occasionally, it is necessary to cancel a concert due to weather. We cancel only to protect our players, crew, and audience. Concert will usually be attempted rather than cancelled for rain. Cancellations for rain will not be made before 5:30 PM. Concerts are cancelled immediately if lightning is seen. Concert cancellations are announced primarily on our hotline at 261-CRMB (261-2762). We’ll get them up on this website and social media as well, but the hotline has priority.
