Spring is in the air, and we'll be ready to touch our instruments again since resting from St.Patrick's month. Time to make the beautiful little drive over to Clifton town for our first show there at their charming old hometown opera house that is acoustically superb. Help us fill the place and make a sweet memory. $10. We'll probably play a few new pieces that'll be showing up on our new CD right around the corner.
Clifton Opera House hosts year round entertainment. The Opera House, designed by Springfield architect Charles Cregar, was built in 1893. Cregar is known for his magnificent designs such as the municipal building in Springfield and numerous churches. The Clifton Opera House was likely one of the smallest buildings which he designed in his career. The various architectural features he included make it apparent that he put a lot of his favorite elements into this structure; however, the tower on the front of the building has since been removed due to damage and deterioration.
Over the years, the Opera House has served as a venue for minstrel shows, town offices, after school sports and community meetings. Most weekends ,you can find a variety of musical offerings and entertainment. The Opera House is currently hosting live concerts and events every Friday and Saturday night during its operating season.
