Summer Concert Series

Mark your 2017 Calendar for our 20th Annual Summer Concert Series!

EDMESTON, NY, May 12, 2017... Pathfinder Village, a remarkable open-access community, will pull out all the stops during its ever popular Summer Concert Series this July and August.  The concerts, a mainstay of the regional entertainment schedule, feature live performances by local talent on Saturday evenings and are free to the public.

“This is our 20th year of presenting live concerts at the Pathfinder Pavilion; the performances are a great opportunity to enjoy the talented musicians we have right here in our own region,” said Paula Schaeffer, the Village’s director of enrichment programs. “The concerts allow friends and music lovers to gather in an informal setting; there are some magical moments as the performers play off the energy of our Village audiences.  The programs are open to everyone, and we’re anticipating another great summer series.”

Pathfinder Village is a non-profit, planned community devoted to supporting adults and children who have Down syndrome and other disabilities.  Through quality residential, educational, vocational, and recreational programs, individuals grow toward fulfillment and independence, while giving back to the local communities. Pathfinder also offers many avenues for community inclusion, through events, a newly renovated full service café, youth soccer games, and through a weekly fresh produce market on Thursday afternoons, Pathfinder Produce. 

The Summer Concert Series is a Decentralization Program.  These programs are made possible with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts, which is administered by the Chenango County Council of the Arts, with support from Governor Andrew Cuomo and the State Legislature.  The series is also made possible with funds from private donors, Stewart’s Shops Holiday Match Program, and WGY’s Christmas Wish.

Concert-goers are asked to bring lawn chairs, wear comfortable shoes, and bring jackets to the performances.  Parking is available on-site.  To find out more about the concert series, please call Pathfinder Village at (607) 965-8377, ext. 126, Monday through Friday, noon to 4 p.m., or visit Pathfinder Village’s page on the popular social networking site, Facebook
