Don’t miss tonight’s performance by award winning performers and composers Kinan Azmeh and Dinuk Wijeratne! The concert begins at 6:30 (by donation), and a Multicultural Buffet with all sorts of tasty foods will be at 5:30 before the show ($10 for adults).
The Summer Concert Series at Union Church is how WCCMA began. Founded in 2008, the program slowly grew from concerts, to added educational programs, and ultimately blossoming into an art center. Each summer 3-6 outstanding performances are offered in the historic Union Church building. The facility offers seating for over 150 people, and outstanding acoustics. This year we have partnered with the Saint Gaudens Memorial to offer special “2-day” events, where artists will appear at WCCMA Saturday evenings, and at Saint-Gaudens National Historic Site Sunday afternoon. This gives you the listener the opportunity to hear a partially different program each day at 2 great historical venues.

WCCMA’s InterArts Summer Camp is an opportunity for students with an interest in the arts to come together to explore, learn, and create for 3 weeks over the summer. Participants will collaborate to form a multi-disciplinary performance for the public which will be shaped and guided by their talents. Tuesday and Thursday for 3 weeks in July participants will work together to create a vaudeville show that will be performed at the end of the third week.
