How the Concert Series Began
In 1994, when a family chamber orchestra with a grant but no venue inquired about the Waterford Old School stage, they were welcomed enthusiastically. A long-held dream by local music lovers came to pass: A concert committee was created and the program for 1995 chosen. The Waterford Concert Series was born. Beginning with a world famous clarinet performer, the Metropolitan Opera National Audition Regional Finalists and a vocal octet, the concert series presented new and well-known classical musicians each year to an audience that grew in number and enthusiasm. Proceeds were used to improve the Old School Auditorium. The fire that destroyed the Old School Auditorium in 2007 was a setback and a challenge. For many years, we partnered with the Waterford Foundation, sharing a common interest in the Old School. In 2015, we reorganized as a new entity, continuing the mutual interest, but with a renewed mission to promote the timeless beauty of classical music to a diverse audience locally and throughout the region.
