Each summer, the Blandford Historical Society brings the joy of music to the Hilltowns of Western Massachusetts in the form of a Summer Concert Series. Concerts are held in the White Church. Built in 1822 as a Meetinghouse, it has been completely restored and has seating for 300, providing excellent acoustics in an intimate setting. There is ample parking and the church is wheelchair accessible and available to everyone.

MORE about our sponsors
The Blandford Summer Concert series is sponsored by the Blandford Historical Society and in part by grants from the Cultural Councils of Blandford, Otis and Tolland, local agencies which are supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency. Proceeds support the preservation and maintenance of The White Church.
Proceeds support the preservation and maintenance of The White Church. The White Church of Blandford is in mint condition but we know that maintaining the building and the grounds in perpetuity requires substantial funding. Many communities have lost their historic meeting houses and churches to private ownership or demolition but with strong leadership and community volunteers, our church has survived and is available for everyone to use. The White Church is owned by the Historical Society of Blandford and is a beautiful setting for weddings, concerts and other special events during the summer months.
