Join our private Facebook group just for musicians here! Click the link and request to join. This is a great place to learn about hikes people are going on, movie nights, planning of Thursday night parties, and more social activities during the summer.
Because of extremely-high costs associated with reserving practice space at the Silver Center, no practice rooms are available there this year. We ask for your understanding and support. In the past, bass storage at the Silver Center cost almost $12,000 per season alone. Our basses may keep their instruments either at Plymouth Congregational Church (we have a room in the lower level that can be locked and there is elevator access) or put your basses on stage at Hanaway.
We ask that you all be mindful of the groups or individuals who most need rehearsal spaces at the church (which is available 24/7 for practice). Chamber musicians, musicians with exposed solos, pianists, should be given extra consideration.
Please do not prop doors at either the Silver Center or the Church. A propped door at the Silver Center will cause a police alarm and if called, the Festival must pay for that service. The church doors will open every day at 8:00 a.m. and close at 10:00 p.m. However, if you wish to practice in the middle of the night, that is fine. Simply contact Lucinda or David Williams (Music Director at Plymouth Church) who have master key access through our mobile phones. We can “buzz you in” to the church at any time.
Emergency Contact Phone for Lucinda: 410-322-4811
Emergency Contact Phone for David: 603-960-2578
