Gloucester Meetinghouse Summer Concert

Stacia Kraft will be performing with her band at the second free Gloucester Meetinghouse Summer Concert Series concert July 13, 6 – 9 pm, at the corner of Church and Middle Street.

 Stacia Kraft sings the American Songbook with classic style; a big alto sound with an honest approach to the lyrics.

 Her program will feature jazz standards, folk songs, Broadway tunes, and spirituals with a superb group of swinging musicians: Tony Malionek – piano, Jon Dreyer-bass, Tom Duprey – trumpet, Miki Matsuki-drums. Trained at the New England Conservatory, Kraft brings emotion and sensuality to each song. You are sure to have a romantic evening of song under the stars, and leave wanting more. 

 The concert is free. In the spirit of giving to the community, concert-goers are encouraged to make free-will donations to Backyard Growers, which provides support to establish vegetable gardens at homes, housing communities, organizations, and schools.

Bring cash or a checkbook, beach chairs or blankets. Food is provided by Crepes du Jour. In case of rain the concert will be held inside the Meetinghouse. Parking is available in lots nearby and at St Peter’s Square.

 Music on Meetinghouse Green’s sponsors include Linzee and Beth Coolidge; J.J. and Jackie Bell; Michael and Mary Bresnan; JoeAnn Hart and Gordon Baird; Harry and Mary Hintlian; Charles Nazarian; Dick and Doris Prouty; Sandra Ronan; Tom and Kristin Zarrella, and Cape Ann Savings Bank.
