    Wagner at 200
    (And Bruckner at 189)

     

    Primarily known for his operas, Richard Wagner’s 200th anniversary of his birth marks the tremendous influence his work had on the development of classical music. His Tristan und Isolde is often described as the start of modern music. His Wesendonck Lieder was inspired by Mathilde Wesendonck who provided the poetry for the five songs, two of which Wagner subtitled as “studies for Tristan und Isolde.”

    WAGNER: Piano Sonata No. 3 in A-flat

    WAGNER: Wesendonck Lieder for mezzo-soprano and piano

Enter the lot at the Main Street driveway. Distance to Shalin Liu Performance Center: 200 ft. Please note that other organizations often have access to this lot, and on those days Rockport Music patrons must seek other parking options. Please be aware that if there is not a parking attendant to assist, do not block other cars access to the exit.

    Town Hall Annex, 26 Broadway
    Coming from the Route 128 traffic lights, follow Route 127 into town, where the road curves left, go straight ahead onto Broadway.

This small lot allows for free parking on evenings and weekends. Distance to Performance Center: 120 yd.

    Finally, use of unmetered spaces is encouraged. If possible, Rockport Music asks that you consider avoiding metered parking during the day (evening concerts are fine), as merchants and restaurants depend on these spaces for their patrons.
