MUSIC

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 16th season of Summer Concerts is being planned right after the new year. Check for the lineup around the 1st of March in 2018.

A great big thank you to The Thomaston Savings Bank Foundation for once again being our faithful corporate sponsor for the past 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 (2017) of free live music concerts!

    The Kenn Morr Band

    Jan 28th 2018

    The Fine Arts Connection of Thomaston presents
    The Kenn Morr Band
    who will perform songs from their latest album release
    Along the Way.

    Sunday, January 28, 2018 – 2:30 p.m.
    First Congregational Church of Thomaston
    135 Main Street
    Thomaston, CT 06787

    Growing up on Long Island, Kenn was inspired by such lyric and melody-minded acts as Gordon Lightfoot, Simon and Garfunkel, Graham Nash, and Jackson Browne. Rex Fowler of Aztec Two-Step became his friend and supporter. When a college baseball scholarship didn’t work out, he turned—appropriately—to Communications, a field for which he is well-suited. He’s got a radio announcer’s rich baritone and the kind of humor and charisma that enthralls audiences of all sizes, from intimate coffeehouses to the stages of venues as demanding as the famed Bitter End in New York City and the International Festival of Arts and Ideas on the New Haven Green.

    Kenn trusts the universe to bring him what he needs: parking spots, dry weather, you name it. He left Long Island and found in Connecticut a home, new friends, and—eventually—the band that brings his music to life. He calls it his best band ever. First up the universe sent violin virtuoso and multi-instrumentalist Tom Hagymasi. (Kenn calls him “an animal.”) The final piece in the puzzle was melodic bassist “Magic” Pat Ryan, a graduate of the Berklee College of Music. Known for its close three-part vocal harmonies and fiery instrumental interplay, the group has been together for several years, becoming fast favorites on the outdoor festival scene. They’ve paid dues of every kind and played gigs of every stripe, along the way sharing the stage with artists like John Sebastian, Al Kooper, Eric Burdon, and John Wesley Harding.
