Monadnock Music

Due to Covid-19's most recent surge of new cases, Monadnock Music has modified our 2020 Summer Season to be largely virtual. The safety of our audience members and musicians is of paramount importance. We are grateful for our members' continued support, and we hope you will consider making a special gift in this time of greater need to help offset the lack of income from our usual summer programming.

Check out our select outdoor events, Listen & Lunch in Peterborough's Depot Park every Thursday at noon, and Pop-Up Concerts throughout the Monadnock region.

Joe Solomon

Remembering Joe Solomon

It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of Board Member Joe Solomon.

A long standing supporter and member of the board, his wisdom and generosity helped guide and care for our organization through many transitions. We are indebted to his service and we deeply feel his loss. Monadnock Music is equally grateful to Joe’s family: the three daughters Joe leaves behind, Méli, Mara and Magen, who helped us keep Joe up to date and involved in our programming and operations, and his wife, Rhoda. A true patron of Monadnock Music, Joe will be remembered for a very long time with fondness and gratitude. We look forward to celebrating his memory in an upcoming performance.
