First CHIRP concert is May 28
The first CHIRP concert of the season will take place Tuesday, May 28, and will feature singer-songwriter James Maddock.
Rain venue for the concert is Ridgefield Playhouse. The concert is underwritten in part by Cohen & Wolfe, P.C.
The free concert series continues to seek funding for the second half of its 2019 season.
“In recent past years, we have had almost 400 families donate each year to CHIRP,” said Barbara Manners, who founded CHIRP in 2002. “Usually, by this time of year, it is close to 300. This year, we are in low 200s. Lots of smaller donors seem to have cut contributions a bit or dropped us altogether.
Donations can be sent to CHIRP at Town Hall, 400 Main St., Ridgefield, CT 06877.
