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.
