Music Worcester begins its first summer series of concerts, Summer @ MW, on Thursday, July 8 with a free presentation of the Brubeck Brothers Quartet, the sons of legendary Dave Brubeck, in Auburn, MA. Two other concerts later in the month bring the Hot Sardines to Indian Ranch in Webster, MA on July 22, and the Gospel choir Trey McLaughlin & The Sounds of Zamar to The Hanover Theatre in Worcester on July 25. This inaugural Summer @ MW season will continue through early September, with additional concerts being announced very soon.
“As Music Worcester started planning to emerge from this recent pandemic, virtual season of programming, it became apparent that we could move somewhat quickly and bring back our live music presentations to Greater Worcester far earlier than our usual October season opener,” noted Adrien Finlay, Executive Director. “We are extraordinarily excited to add summer programming to our annual activities from this point forward, which will allow us to explore new venues and welcome even more varied artists and ensembles to the region.”
The concerts at Indian Ranch and The Hanover Theatre will feature seating sections where distanced “pods” of seats will be available for patrons who prefer or need such an option, with general admission seating available elsewhere at both venues.
