Join us for the Concerts under the Elms, an annual outdoor summer concert series held Thursdays under the canopy of elms at the John Brown House Museum. The American Band, comprised of over fifty adult musicians, has a long and colorful history extending back to 1837, making it one of the oldest continuously active bands in the United States. The music they perform ranges from classical to popular, marches and operatic overtures to modern works for band.
Guests may bring a picnic to enjoy on the beautiful grounds, or new this year, purchase Bravo wood-fired pizza, made on location.
