The Walton Theatre has been closed since mid-March because of the pandemic. During this time, Music on the Delaware has worked to provide live music outside the theatre, namely with free virtual concerts. From March 26 through July 30, the organization sponsored 18 weekly Virtual House Parties, all produced through Zoom. All of the 30 to 40-minute concerts were recorded and can be found on the Music on the Delaware Facebook page under Videos.
For the Fall, the Walton Theatre will remain closed, so Music on the Delaware will continue to offer virtual events. One major music series for the fall will be free Virtual Coffeehouse Concerts, which will be presented live through Zoom on the first and third Sundays of the month from September 20 through November 15. The mini-concerts will run from 7:00-8:00 p.m., with a short break in the middle and time for chat between audience and musicians at the end. All five events can be accessed through this zoom number (CLICK BUTTON BELOW TO ACCESS): https://us02web.zoom.us/j/82709328311
