Celebrate New Concord is preparing for its 2020 season.
Celebrate New Concord (CNC) began informally in 2000 with a free performance in Village Park by the Muskingum College Faculty Brass Quintet, which was then directed by the late Dr. William Schlacks. Based on the response that year, Celebrate New Concord began in 2001, with Bill as its founder.
Since then, CNC has grown to six performances each summer, on the first and third Tuesdays of June, July and August, at 7:00 p.m. in Village Park in downtown New Concord. (The first July concert is held at the Fireman’s Festival.)
CNC has reached over 17,000 audience members since 2001, with a mix of music, theater, educational programming and magic, and has become a regular part of summer in New Concord.
CNC is supported entirely by contributions from individuals and organizations to the Celebrate New Concord Patronage Program, and every dollar received goes to support the series. No one involved in the organization of CNC is paid.
