UPDATE as of July 1, 2020

Due to COVID-19, we made the difficult, yet responsible decision to cancel all concerts for 2020. We will miss all who have so generously supported our concerts in recent years.

The arts community has been drastically affected by the restrictions on gathering for concert events. For 44 years Stowe Performing Arts has relied on the generosity of local businesses, individuals and concertgoers to support our efforts to contribute to the cultural vitality of this community. We still need your support.

Click HERE to make a credit card donation to sustain Stowe Performing Arts, or send a check to Stowe Performing Arts, PO Box 3283, Stowe, VT 05672. Your contributions are fully tax-deductible and greatly appreciated.

We hope to see you next year!

For over 35 years, the Noon Music in May series has coincided with snowmelt on the mountain, hundreds of daffodils, warm weather and the excitement that goes with the start of the concert season. We had engaged four spectacular performing ensembles – three trios and one sextet – and were looking forward to a crowded church every Wednesday.

On the bright side, three of the artists enthusiastically helped us create a “virtual” concert series by sending links to previous performances. Visit Stowe Performing Arts’ Facebook page or every Wednesday throughout the month (or at your convenience.) I hope you will join us on Wednesday, May 13 when two members of the Craftsbury Chamber Players Piano Trio will provide  a video-taped performance created specifically for this occasion. This will give you a brief look at our lineup for 2021, as all of the artists have agreed to perform for us next year!

At your leisure, enjoy The Great Necks Guitar trio, our featured artist on Wednesday, May 6. Click on their youtube channel Their bio is available at
