About Monadnock Music

Who We Are

Monadnock Music is a 52 year-old 501(c)3 non-profit that makes exceptional music accessible to all in intimate and informal settings in the towns and villages of the Monadnock region. Through a commitment to varied and imaginative performances and teaching, Monadnock Music keeps a sense of musical daring and discovery alive.

What We Do

Each summer we produce a season of 12 concerts throughout the Monadnock Region: 4 ticketed, large-scale productions at the Town House in Peterborough, and 9 free traveling performances which rotate among 22 towns surrounding the mountain. Our concerts welcome all ages, are accessible to all, and offer a mix of classic and contemporary composers.

Lend an Ear

Lend An Ear! is our musical education program we present to more than a dozen schools. It gives a hands-on encounter with a variety of musical instruments to elementary school children with exceptional guest musicians.

Where We Are Going

With a half-century under our belts, we have exciting things in store for our next half-century. After three solid years ending in the black, Artistic Director Gil Rose looks forward to having the creative space and freedom to take our audiences on new and different journeys. We are now requesting additional financial support to expand our elementary school music program. 

Our Audiences

Monadnock Music provides 12 concerts each summer, serving over 1,000 attendees including children, families and adults of all ages.  We draw 80 percent of concert goers from the Monadnock Region. Because of the high quality of our concerts, we draw another 20 percent of attendees from distances of 1 hour and as far away as 3 hours! Our mailing list has 3500 contacts. We have a healthy Membership Program with over 125 supporters.
