And a good time was had by all!

The 2015 edition of Moonlight Concert in Paradise was a resounding success, with an audience of more than 1000 enthusiastic listeners. We could tell you more, but we’d rather let someone else describe it, and Larry Powell of the Annapolis County Spectator has done just that. His story and pictures capture the evening very well. Enjoy!

Weather woes? Perhaps…

2015 – Status Report #1

The forecast for this year’s Moonlight in Paradise is providing a bit of a challenge. It is far too early to make a decision on whether to proceed on Saturday or postpone until Sunday. So at this point in time it is “business as usual” and we are a go for Saturday evening.

If a postponement is necessary, we will post an announcement here as soon as that decision is made… which could even be sometime Saturday afternoon depending on how decisive the forecasts are.
