About the 2022 Season

We are so excited to welcome the community back for the 25th season of our much-loved Concerts Under the Elms!

The six-week series, hosted on the lawn of the John Brown House Museum on Thursdays at 6:30 p.m., will feature a lineup of returning favorites and first-time performers all selected by RIHS stakeholders in celebration of our bicentennial. This year will see the return of food trucks and guests are still welcome to bring their own chairs and coolers.
