The First Thursdays concerts are held the first Thursday of each month from September through June each year, and include a wine-and-cheese reception on the Civic Center plaza followed by a 75-minute performance.

Subscriptions are now available for the 2021-2022 season, which begins on September 2. From classical to jazz to bluegrass, the Foundation’s Cultural Arts Committee has chosen ten diverse, highly-talented ensembles to perform at Town Hall this season: from Holly Hofmann and Mike Wofford to the Hutchins Consort to Peter Sprague to the world renowned sitarist Kartik Seshadri.
