The Summer Concert Series at Union Church is how WCCMA began. Founded in 2008, the program slowly grew from concerts, to eventually including 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. In 2013 the organ will be renovated, providing a concert quality instrument.
2016 Summer Concert Series schedule:
All concerts are by donation, and held at the historical Union Church at 133 Old Church Rd, Claremont, NH.
