CONCERT LISTINGS BY CITY - SEPTEMBER 2021
What's coming in September? The summer concerts which have not yet completed the season will be drawing to a close. For remaining summer concerts, it is still best to confirm any performance before attending. The site has remained in its Fall/Winter/Spring format for summer 2021 instead of the expanded summer version. Hopefully the expanded summer version will return in 2022 - the site's 20th Anniversary summer! The fall edition of the site will return in October. Until then, site updates through September will take place weekly on Sundays. Also, check the site's Facebook and Twitter pages for the most recent information and the latest news. If you would still like to view the pre-Covid expanded 2019 Summer edition of the site, with the theme "O-Gan and the Herons 2," it can be reached via links on the Site Book page or at www.dorothyswebsite.org/2019index.html.

However, many of the groups and organizations sponsoring these concerts incur substantial costs in bringing them to you year after year. Donations which allow them to continue their tradition of bringing quality music to the general public at no charge are appreciated.
. . . AND ONE REQUEST FOR VISITORS: Survey forms are sometimes passed out at concerts/event venues, and the question "How did you hear about this event?" is often asked. If you are attending an event you found on this site and receive such a form, it would be much appreciated if you let them know that you found the information on www.dorothyswebsite.org. Thank you!
