Evenings Under the Stars - 2017

at the Jane Carr Amphitheater in Hingham

Welcome to the 21st season of Summer Spotlight, SSC’s outdoor concert series! Feel the warm breeze of a summer's evening, smell the intoxicating aroma of hot dogs cooking on the grill, run your bare feet through the soft grass of the lawn, and enjoy a leisurely glass of wine while listening to an Evenings Under the Stars performance. Come to hear something new – we've got a little something for everyone with contemporary programming that's fresh and new.

Audience members are invited to have light hors d’oeuvres and drinks prior to the concert, mingle with other guests and meet the performers at EUS pre-concert receptions. 

Concerts take place rain or shine.
