Celebrate New Concord (CNC) began informally in 2000 with a free performance in Village Park by the Muskingum College Faculty Brass Quintet, which was then directed by the late Dr. William Schlacks. Based on the response that year, Celebrate New Concord began in 2001, with Bill as its founder.

Since then, CNC has grown to six performances each summer, on the first and third Tuesdays of June, July and August, at 7:00 p.m. in Village Park in downtown New Concord. The series also features one performance at the New Concord Fireman’s Festival, which typically is held the Friday and Saturday after the fourth of July each year.

CNC has reached over 14,000 audience members since 2001, with a mix of music, theater, educational programming and magic, and has become a regular part of summer in New Concord.

CNC is supported entirely by contributions from individuals and organizations to the Celebrate New Concord Patronage Program, and every dollar received goes to support the series. No one involved in the organization of CNC is paid.

Please make checks payable to Celebrate New Concord, and mail to Village Hall, P.O. Box 10, New Concord, Ohio 43762.
