Summer Concert Series


June 2020


Dear Pathfinder Village Friends and Live Music Fans:

With ongoing concerns about the COVID-19 pandemic and state restrictions on large public gatherings, we will not host our live Summer Concert Series this July and August. We hope to offer lively, music-filled evenings again as soon as it is safely possible for us to do so.

With that said, we wish to recognize the musical groups that have been such a great part of our annual series for over 20 years. If you would like to sample some of their diverse offerings, please check the links below to explore the groups' social media posts. 

Of course, we wish to thank our loyal supporters of our annual Summer Concert Series:  The Chenango Arts Council, Stewarts' Holiday Match Program, and the WGY Christmas Wish Campaign, as well as private donors who appreciate our special summer nights filled with great music.  (Past Summer Concert Series were funded with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts, and administered by the Chenango County Council of the Arts, with support from Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature).

We hope to offer a more-extensive concert series next spring and will share those dates as soon as possible. Thank you for your ongoing support and interest in Pathfinder Village and the rich community life we share with our neighbors and those with developmental disabilities.  We invite you to follow our social media accounts on Facebook and Instagram to stay current on the latest news from Pathfinder Village.

Until we meet again, enjoy music when you can and dance where you are!
