President Sydney Patten's outdoor garden

Enjoy music al fresco with performers from the Rossini Club! We are planning small outdoor concerts for this Summer (and possibly September) and virtual concerts for the later Fall, Winter and (we hope not) Spring.

Our second summer outdoor concert will take place at 7 p.m. Wednesday, August 26 at the home of member Sydney Patten in Falmouth (come 15 minutes early to set up your chairs). The audience and performers will be appropriately socially distanced and follow protocols for safety.

The approximately hour-long concert will include several instrumentalists performing pieces from a variety of classical composers.
