The Fine Arts Connection of Thomaston

Facebook Twitter


The Fine Arts Connection MUSIC group is probably the most well known as it has been providing programs for the longest time. Most notable is the annual Summer Band Concert Series which began in the late '90's with a few concerts by the American Service Bands.  The Concert Series began in 2003 with six bands and has grown to today's nine bands!

MUSIC has brought the Connecticut Opera Express into the school system with their presentation of "Amahl and the Night Visitors".  A joint concert with the New England Symphonic Band and the Farmington Valley band was held in 2004 at the historic Thomaston Opera House.  Future plans include assisting with providing new presentations for the schools and the greater Thomaston Community.


The 15th season of Summer Concerts is now upon us.  See the lineup below.

A great big thank you to The Thomaston Savings Bank Foundation for once again being our faithful corporate sponsor for this season's concert series so you and your families can come and enjoy some wonderful entertainment free of charge.

Thank you to all of our patrons, supporters, and music lovers for supporting our 15th Year of free live music concerts!

    The ZOLLA BOYS in Concert - August 14 - 7:00 p.m.

    Aug 14th 2017

    A few years back a couple of young boys, The ZOLLA BOYS, took to the stage bringing us some fresh new sounds of old traditional bluegrass music. Now, just a few short years later, they have played with some of the most incredibly talented veterans in the field. Ben and Sam Zolla are here once again to entertain us with what they’ve learned and share their musical talents, joined by their father, Larry on bass and guitar, and their newest addition, Richard Underwood on Banjo.

    16 year old Ben Zolla and his 15 year old brother Sam started playing music with their dad, Larry in the spring of 2012. What started as a hobby quickly grew into regular bookings at music halls, bluegrass festivals and concerts . The Boys have found their voices; from the songs of the Louvin Brothers, Stanley Brothers, and Jim and Jesse, to Bob Dylan and Blue Highway. They have been featured on the Emerging Artist stage at the Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival, and perform at numerous bluegrass festivals throughout New England. The newest member of the band, legendary banjo player Richard Underwood, brings energy and drive to the boys classic brother duet sound.

    The rain location is:
    Thomaston High School Auditorium
    185 Branch Road (Rte. 109)
    Thomaston, CT 06787
