Summer Concerts on the Green US Coast Guard – The Beacons
June 25 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm EDT
About this event
Join us for our second outdoor summer Concert on the Green featuring The Beacons on the green outside La Grua Center. Major support for the summer Concerts on the Green has been provided by the Stonington Village Improvement Association.
Representing the US Coast Guard Band, the Coast Guard Jazz Nonet was formed in 2020. Smaller than a traditional big band, but larger than a jazz combo, the band plays music ranging from classic big band standards, instrumental solos, and patriotic music.
Please read the information below to understand what policies will be in place for the concert.
Rain Date: If it looks like inclement weather on the day of the concert, we will make the call by noon and update our website event page, as well as send an e-mail to ticket holders. The rain date will be the next day on Saturday at 6 p.m.
Parking: Parking in Stonington Borough in the summer can be a challenge. The free lot at Stonington Commons at 32 Water Street will be available until it is full. Residents of Stonington Borough are encouraged to walk. Additional tips can be found here.
