About Concerts Under the Elms

We are so excited to welcome the community back for the 27th season of our much-loved Concerts Under the Elms!

The six-week series, hosted on the newly-revitalized Great Lawn of the John Brown House Museum on Thursdays at 6:30 p.m (except Wednesday, July 3rd) will feature a lineup of returning favorites and first-time performers!

Guests to the concert are welcome to bring their own chairs, blankets, and coolers. Please note that dogs are not permitted unless they are a service animal.


For the first time, we are offering flexible passes to this year’s concerts, allowing guests to purchase tickets in advance that can be used at any concert during the six-week season! Each pass provides access for one individual to a single concert. Passes are redeemable at any point during the 2024 CUE season, but will expire in September 2024 and cannot be used for future seasons. Please note that this season has a rain date of Thursday, August 8, in the event that a concert needs to be canceled due to inclement weather.

Passes are $10 for non-RIHS members. Children under 12 are free. RIHS members receive free admission to all concerts, with memberships starting as low as $40. Please visit our membership page for more information. 

Thanks to the generosity of our presenting sponsor, AARP members and their guests will receive $5.00 off the concert ticket price of $10.00. Use Promo Code “ElmsConcerts2024” when purchasing your ticket(s). Offer available while supplies last.
