For information and tickets, visit www.musiconthehillri.org.

The festival begins on Memorial Day, Monday, May 27 at 3 p.m., with a return to LineSider Brewing for an afternoon concert in the taproom, a popular intimate music venue with seating.

About Music on the Hill: 

Since 2008, Music on the Hill has welcomed thousands of chamber music lovers to concerts across Rhode Island, from our hometown of East Greenwich to Providence, Warwick, Cranston, Jamestown, Wickford, Westerly and more. Our ensemble includes professional musicians native to Rhode Island with international careers, as well as their friends and colleagues who have come to see Rhode Island as their home away from home, with many returning to the Ocean State each summer. Music on the Hill’s adventurous programs combine highlights of chamber music repertoire with less familiar gems. Concerts are offered in intimate venues where the audience sits up close to the action. Music on the Hill’s festival is made possible by support from The Carter Family Charitable Trust, the Roitman Fund at the Rhode Island Foundation, and Rhode Island State Council on the Arts, through an appropriation by the Rhode Island General Assembly and a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
