    Great Music on Sundays @5 Has Been Great… for 25 Years!

    John Thomas Great Music Provincetown
    July 24, 2023

    In a town renowned for bringing in some of the best world-class artists to show and perform, Great Music on Sundays @5 stands out: for 25 years, it has been offering residents and visitors alike the opportunity to hear what is rightly called “music without borders,” with over 350 concerts, hundreds of performers, and thousands of concert-goers.

    Conceived as a combination of Meeting House Trust events, performances by the Provincetown Chamber Players (organized by Peter Orgain), and other events produced by John Thomas and Jon Arterton, the Great Music on Sundays @5 concert series has since 2009 been produced by John Thomas.

    This season runs from June 25 through September 17, with all concerts held at the Unitarian Universalist Meeting House of Provincetown. This year’s concert season theme, Music is Art, is an appreciation of Provincetown’s embrace of live performance in the same way it has supported the visual and literary arts for more than a century as the longest continuously operating art colony in North America. Great Music on Sundays @5 is Provincetown’s longest-running concert series of music from around our world.

    The Sunday concerts begin at 5pm and include an hour of stimulating “music without borders”: Baroque, classical, Broadway, international, piano, organ, a cappella and original music with more than 40 performers presenting music from across the centuries and around the world. Two of the concerts will be live-streamed on the concert series’ dedicated YouTube channel and will remain available for enjoyment.

    This season’s offerings include The Colors of Music, Broadway: Curtain Up, A Thousand Golden Strings, the Hyannis Sound, Harmonies Across Cultures, Miscast Broadway, Music is Art, Codependent Broadway, Dazzling Treasures, Music Without Borders, and Broadway: Curtain Call.
