NMS Presents:  Twilight Tuesdays 2016

Neighborhood Music School presents Twilight Tuesdays, an alfresco dinner/concert series of four fabulous evenings of music in the Park of the Arts, located behind NMS.
Doors at 6:30 pm. Concerts start at 7:30 pm. 
100 Audubon Street, New Haven.  Rain or shine!
Food trucks available on site or you are welcome to bring a picnic dinner.
Cash beer and wine bar. BYOB is welcome.

"Mark and I loved the summer program for several reasons, including the variety of music; the wonderful feeling of being part of a community...of music and dance lovers, of New Havenites, of supporters of NMS; and enjoying the fun of a "picnic in the park" (or delicious food from food trucks) with the added protection of going indoors if the weather doesn't cooperate."
- Katie Olive, frequent Twilight Tuesdays attendee

August 2 Model Decoy

Model Decoy is an art-rock group, and New Haven favorite, that plays original songs ranging from upbeat and catchy, to slow and sublime. This imaginative duo Doron Monk Flake and Ari Sadowitz, and their band, certainly don’t stick to the same old topics when it comes to song-writing - their lyrical influences are drawn from literature, graphic novels, sci-fi shows and classic films.
