Cold enough out there for you? Come inside and join CHIRP at our winter series, The Acoustic Celebration. Check out www.acousticcelebration.org.
CHIRP is now far along in planning for 2014, but we need underwriters in addition to residential support in order to present a full season. If you would be interested in helping support these wonderful free concerts in Ballard Park throughout the summer, please contact Barbara Manners at 203 431-6501 or email email@example.com.
CHIRP’s new season begins Tuesday, May 28, with an area band playing favorites from the Big Band era and moves ahead June 3, to the swampy bayous of Louisiana and then June 10 to the country sounds of Austin, Tex. Looking to I.D. these bands? Check out ChirpCT on Facebook which keeps up with latest news.
CHIRP is a series of free Tuesday and Thursday night summer concerts in Ballard Park located in the heart of Ridgefield. It also sponsors the U.S. Military Band concerts held several times a year at the H.S. auditorium. CHIRP is totally funded by individual and foundation donations as well as contributions from local businesses. It is co-sponsored by the town of Ridgefield through its Parks & Rec. Dep’t. and The Ridgefield Press. Concerts begin at 7p.m. Please understand that we love dogs BUT they are not permitted in Ballard Park.
CHIRP’s mission is to present to its audience music and professional musicians who would not normally otherwise have a venue in the Ridgefield/Danbury area. It’s main goal is to build community through shared experience.
We ask you to please support and thank the businesses and individuals who, have generously contributed to our 2013 series whether through underwriting, advertisements or simple contributions.
