EUCC CONCERT SERIES
For over 250 years, members of the faith congregation known as Emmanuel have faithfully served the Hanover community.
Our concert series serves as an outreach to Hanover and surrounding communities to introduce them to the beauty of Emmanuel United Church of Christ and to offer them the unique gifts of music presented here.
All concerts are free and open to the public--made possible by generous donors. Free-will offerings are graciously received. A dessert reception follows each concert to give attendees the opportunity to meet and greet the performing artists.
