“Musical Mondays at the Library in Nevada City! What a fabulous audience. Perhaps my favorite moment was the baby that crawled right up on stage trying, it seemed, to crawl right inside the music. Thank you InConcert Sierra for this great free series and Friends of the Library. What an utter joy!” – Sands Hall


Mini-concerts for all ages!

Madelyn Helling Library in Nevada City

Musical Mondays is a popular series of free Monday morning concerts where kids can sing, squirm and dance, and adults can relax and enjoy (or sing and dance too!) The collaboration between the Nevada County library and InConcert Sierra presents live music experiences with a fun educational twist at the Marian E. Gallaher, M.D. Amphitheater, adjacent to the Madelyn Helling Library at the Rood Center.  Bring your lawn chair or blanket and be ready for an hour of engaging music performed by local and regional professional musicians.
