MADISON POPS ON JULY 1ST
Find your spot for the 35th Annual Concert on the Madison Green
This year’s Concert on the Madison Green
will be held Saturday, July 1st, beginning at 5:00pm and our new favorite Caribbean band, Moto, performs at 6:15pm.
At 7:00pm, Philip Ventre (Madison’s own) and The Wallingford Symphony Orchestra will perform a new program to be determined . . . plus all the favorite patriotic music to begin and end the concert.
Becoming a Patron before June 25th, 2017
offers you the following advantages:
1. In case of rain, the Wallingford Symphony Orchestra will perform at Polson Middle School Auditorium. Guaranteed reserved seating will be for the first 600 Patrons.
2. Guaranteed Patron seating access – due to limited space, we are limiting the number of seats per contributor, with seating quantities keyed to the amount of your donation. Due to time constraints, we can only accept Patron seating reservations through Friday, June 25th, 2016.
3. Complimentary American flags and/or T-shirts for those contributing $100 or more.
4. Special recognition in the Concert Program and our eternal gratitude.
1. Sponsor $70 - $99 = 2 passes
2. Family $100 - $149 = 4 passes (and a flag!)
3. Family Patron $150 - $349 = 6 passes (and a T-shirt!)
4. Concert Patron $350 or more = 12 passes (and 2 T-shirts and 2 flags!)
Note that passes are for adults and children over 12 years old. Children 12 and under accompanied by adults do not need passes.
If you can give $500 or more, please give MCA Treasurer, Andrew DeBiccari, a call at 203-952-7054 in order to accommodate your seating requirements.
Admission is free,
but there are limited reserved ticket areas on the lawn in front of the stage for patrons who donate $70 or more. Because this special concert is funded predominantly by patron donations for the reserved area and also by passing the hat at the concert, your support is the only way that this wonderful event continues each year.
Even if you can’t become a patron, any donation is very much needed and appreciated. This concert costs in excess of $40,000 to stage and would normally have an admission charge of at least $25 per person. In addition to the reserved area, patrons receive free gifts and guaranteed rainy-day seats in Brown Middle School Auditorium for the first 300 patrons.
To buy patron tickets, please contact Frank Kling at 203-215-9396, Duo Dickinson’s office at 203-245-0405, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or just show up the day of the concert.

ABOUT MADISON CULTURAL ARTS
Madison Cultural Arts was founded in 1994 as the successor to the Madison Arts and Sciences Council. MCA is a diverse group of people who work to encourage the creative and performing arts in Madison. Current members’ backgrounds run the gamut from lawyers, musicians, designers, teachers and architects to those who just appreciate the arts in general. The preliminary goal of our organization was to save the Concert on the Green that had occurred on or about July 4th every year for the previous 12 or 13 years.
After the 1995 concert, the Madison Arts and Science Council turned over all responsibilities for the concert to Madison Cultural Arts which retired old debts and reinvigorated the concert. With the help of the thousands who attend and the Madison Board of Selectmen’s contributions of much needed logistical and some monetary support, MCA will continue to present the best July 4th weekend concert event that is possible.
We eventually expanded our mission to include:
The MCA Winter Concert which has been attended by hundreds of people (lately to standing-room-only audiences) and has allowed MCA to give more than $69,000 since 1998 to community organizations.
MCA is proud to be one of the founding sponsors of the The Sculpture Mile, an outstanding exhibition of contemporary sculpture (traditional and non-objective) drawn from the main stream of American art. Volunteers have now established the Hollycroft Cultural Council of Madison, a local committee for the administration of The Sculpture Mile. If you’d like to join this dynamic, enthusiastic group, please call 860-767-2624.
With more people engaged in fund raising and volunteering, opportunities will grow and, with more funds in hand, MCA can become a source for seed money for worthy endeavors that encourage the creative and performing arts. For more information, please call 203-245-0405. Come Join Us!
As an all volunteer organization, Madison Cultural Arts always needs new and wonderful volunteers to help plan and organize our concerts and programs.
