The Sunday Social Series is done in collaboration with the Keene Heritage Commission and Keene Parks and Recreation Department. The series brings live music to local historic homes and buildings one Sunday afternoon per month. Along with a live concert, there are presentations on the historic importance of the concert venue as well as a talk on other local historic sites. All proceeds from this series go to the renovation fund for the Sumner Knight Chapel.
Suggested donation is $10.00, with proceeds going to the Sumner Knight Chapel Restoration Fund. Tickets for this special event are limited, so advance purchase is strongly suggested.
