The Fine Arts Connection of Thomaston

Facebook Twitter


The Fine Arts Connection MUSIC group is probably the most well known as it has been providing programs for the longest time. Most notable is the annual Summer Band Concert Series which began in the late '90's with a few concerts by the American Service Bands.  The Concert Series began in 2003 with six bands and has grown to today's nine bands!

MUSIC has brought the Connecticut Opera Express into the school system with their presentation of "Amahl and the Night Visitors".  A joint concert with the New England Symphonic Band and the Farmington Valley band was held in 2004 at the historic Thomaston Opera House.  Future plans include assisting with providing new presentations for the schools and the greater Thomaston Community.

    PARKWAY DINER - in Concert - 7:00 p.m.

    Jun 20th 2022

    Parkway Diner began a few years ago as a duo, with J.J. manning the mic, & Chris on keys . They moved around Ct. for a couple years doing shows of all types, with a very Billy Joel heavy song list, while covering many of your favorite artists’ tunes as well .So a couple of years ago they added guitar & drums.Picking up momentum over time, they felt it was time to grow.

    Then, to take Parkway Diner to the next level, they needed to add that vital to all rhythm sections piece. That very special bassist. Done! To polish things off, the band drew from a very special well of seasoned saxophonists. And was very fortunate to be able to add it’s final piece, to bring their sound to exactly where they want it to be.

    Now, Parkway Diner is coming at you strong, with the classic hits of Billy Joel and Elton John all the while filling the air with powerful renditions of songs that you’ve enjoyed all your lives.

Smooth harmonies and adventurous musicianship bring stellar arrangements to life and leave the listener anything but “blue”.

    Seamlessly blending their vocals are guitarist Betsy Rome and banjoist Joan Harrison. Mandolin powerhouse Michael Sassano astounds and entertains, while jazz bassist Jamie Doris brings a creative and unique perspective to the band. Together, Too Blue makes exciting bluegrass that swings and entertains.

    Aug 1st 2022

    Kenn Morr’s songs have an elemental quality—water, earth, relationships, seasons, time, change, loss—like the great songwriters who inspired him early on: Dylan, Simon, Van Morrison, Graham Nash, and especially Gordon Lightfoot. He understands that when trouble comes, the trade winds bring an upside, and there’s always the redemptive power of music. “Tomorrow will be soon, so dance beneath the moon and may the morning light come set you free” he sings on Morning Light, one of ten new songs on “Open Field,” his eleventh album.
