Music On the River

 

Welcome to Music on the River!

A FREE outdoor concert series located on the lawn of the historic Goodspeed Opera House in downtown East Haddam.

The MOTR Concerts are made possible through the generous contributions of Business Sponsors and Individual Patrons who share a mutual belief that music is Celebratory, Joyful and, most importantly, Healing. Now more than ever, we embrace this opportunity to rekindle friendships and rejoice in a weekly celebration of these values. The partnership of MOTR with the audience demonstrates the spirit of a community which appreciates the extraordinary artists who perform and the majesty of the location, all respectfully working together toward continued success.

The Schedule: The cosmos has aligned!  We can’t believe our good fortune in being able to present this cavalcade of stars.  We hope for sunny days and clear evenings each Monday at 6:30pm to 8:30pm.

 

Should it rain, please don’t let inclement weather stop you from enjoying these high ticket artists.  Join us at the  Nathan Hale Ray high school auditorium where you can experience the music in a concert hall setting.

The only exception being Twisted Pine, who will perform on the lawn of the Goodspeed Opera House Tuesday July 26th.

Great food and drinks are available to purchase at the Gelston House or bring a picnic dinner.  

 

Free parking is available in the Goodspeed Opera House parking lot with additional parking and a shuttle bus from Eagle Landing in Haddam.
