The Center for The Arts Lake Sunapee Region is excited to host Studio Two on July 5 at 6:30 p.m. at the Mary D. Haddard band stand in New London for a free concert. Studio Two is a headlining Beatles band that pays tribute to the early Beatles years, choosing songs from the pre-Sgt. Pepper era, the years where they took the world by storm, and changed everything. Band members are experienced musicians who recreate the Fab Four’s music, appearance, instruments, and onstage banter. Prior to the concert at 6:15 p.m. CFA will announce the 2019 Center for The Arts Scholarship Recipients. Funded by the generosity of members and the community these scholarships are awarded each year to students and adults who are pursuing any area of the arts (literature, drama, dance, music or the visual arts). All First Friday events are free and open to the public. The Center for The Arts is a volunteer organization that hosts a series of free arts programs on the first Friday of each month in the Lake Sunapee Region. If you would like to learn more about the Center for The Arts or would like to volunteer, perform, or sponsor a program, please contact us at 526-4444 or visit CenterForTheArts
