Gloucester Meeinghouse Foundation announces their 2017 line-up
First up Berklee Be-Bop Guitars on July 7 to benefit Pathways for Children
From Gloucester Meetinghouse printed matter:
“The Gloucester Meetinghouse Foundation is pleased to announce the return of the free, outdoor concert series ‘Music on Meetinghouse Green’ starting with the Berklee ensemble Be-Bob Guitars to benefit Pathways for Children on Friday evening July 7th.
Mayor Romeo Theken regrets missing the 2017 kick off concert due to a prior family commitment, and she’s ever thankful that this fantastic series at such a grand and special venue is continuing after the pilot program last season! She’s asked Ward Councilor Melissa Cox to be on hand to open the first event. Mayor Theken is especially calling out old friends to come downtown to the old stomping grounds for all of them…especially August 11th!

So don’t miss the second season of Music on Meetinghouse Green featuring 9 great musical events in support of 9 terrific local non-profits via free-will offerings (please bring a folding chair, blanket, cash or check). Shows start at 6:00pm and run until 8:30pm. In case of inclement weather events will be held inside the historic 1806 Meetinghouse at the corner of Church and Middle Street.
The sponsors of ‘Music on Meetinghouse Green’ pre-pay the expenses so all contributions go to our non-profit partners. Special thanks to Linzee & Beth Coolidge (matching gift) plus Tom & Susan Andresen, J.J. & Jackie Bell, Michael & Mary Ann Bresnan, Harry & Mary Hintlian, Dick & Doris Prouty, Charles Nazarian, Sandra Ronan, and our corporate sponsor: Cape Ann Saving Bank.”
