If you drive by the Simsbury Meadows Performing Arts Center almost anytime this summer, you’ll see why we say that the center is more than a stage. You may see one of the many private events in progress, such as musical rehearsals, athletic events, dance recitals, awards ceremonies and graduations.
Virtual Concert Series
Presented by Liberty Bank, the series will be broadcast on Simsbury Community Television simsburytv.org in May. The concerts are:
Jonathan Barber and Erica Bryan and The New Mosaic
Righteous Continental and Kids That Fly
Littlehouse and Coyote River Band
These performers will also appear live in August as part of the Simsbury Meadows concert series.
