The Norwood Village Green Concert Series is supported by local public funds from the Town of Potsdam and the Village of Norwood.
Additionally, the series has received state and federal funding from the American Rescue Plan Act, the New York State Council of the Arts, and NYSCA’s ReStart NY program, as well as the contributions of foundations, businesses, generous concertgoers and private donors.
This year’s performance lineup comes with higher lodging costs to the series. “Pass the bucket” donations will aid in offsetting these costs, in addition to helping the series towards its goal of installing a handicap-accessible ramp entrance to the Liotta Bandshell. The series has committed $20,000 to this project, much of which will be derived from concertgoers’ donations.
The series continues to solicit donations by check. Such donations can be mailed to:
