The Trapp Family Lodge concert meadow is the site of the Music in the Meadow concerts. The gently sloping lawn of the concert meadow provides a venue of unparalleled beauty and comfort.
Seating is picnic-style and on a first come, first served basis.There are designated, well-marked areas for blankets, low-back chairs and high-back chairs. These areas reflect our seating policy to guarantee each concert-attendee a view of the stage as well as the rolling hills of the Nebraska Valley. Our ushers will be happy to help you find a great seat. We appreciated your understanding!

Noon Music in May
Stowe Community Church has graciously donated the sanctuary for the Noon Music in May concerts since the beginning of the series in the late ‘70s. This historic and beautiful building houses a restored 1898 Steinway Grand Piano and a W. B. Simmons Tracker organ. The acoustics and the intimate setting are perfect for the small ensembles presented in this series.

The Gazebo on the lawn of the Helen Day Art Center/Stowe Free Library is the setting for another outdoor concert series, while smaller it’s just as entertaining as the meadow concerts. Stowe Community Church is available as an alternate concert site in the event of inclement weather for the Gazebo performances.
