Summer Performances at Maudslay Arts Center
Join us for our 25th season of varied musical and dance entertainment
Whether you’re sitting under the stars on a moonlit evening, or lounging on a blanket on a Sunday afternoon, the Maudslay summer concert series provides the perfect setting for your entertainment pleasure. Now in its 25th season, the MAC performance schedule offers something for everyone.
Concerts are held rain or shine. In fair weather, our outdoor stage seating provides the ideal al fresco setting, with table and chairs in our patio seating area, and bring your own blanket seating on the lawn. When weather dictates, the performances move inside to the MAC Concert Barn. Concert goers are encouraged to bring a picnic dinner, which can be casual or as elaborate as a gourmet meal with tablecloth and a flowers and whatever suits the patron’s fancy. Delicious desserts such as seasonal cobblers and Ghiradelli brownies, Hodgie’s ice cream, and beverages may be purchased during intermission, all served by dedicated MAC volunteers who continue to make this non-profit series happen.
