Christmas gift idea for music lovers | Food and fun


NEWBURYPORT, MA – Looking for the perfect gift for the music lover in your life? How about a gift certificate for the Maudslay Arts Center (MAC) Summer Concert Series? The Maudslay Arts Center summer concert series provides the perfect setting for your entertainment pleasure.

MAC will be celebrating its 29th season, which promises something for every musical taste, from classical to jazz, from country to the Great American Songbook. The schedule will be posted at the beginning of June.

The Maudslay Arts Center is located at 95 Curzon Mill Road, Maudslay State Park, Newburyport, MA. The concerts take place rain or shine, moving inside the MAC Concert Barn when the weather calls for it. Spectators are encouraged to bring a picnic, which can be casual or as elaborate as a gourmet meal with tablecloth and flowers and whatever suits the guest’s fancy.

Delicious desserts such as seasonal cobblers, Hodgie’s brownies and ice cream, cold drinks and coffee can be purchased during intermission, all served by dedicated MAC volunteers, who continue to bring this series to life at non-profit.

To purchase gift certificates online (major credit cards accepted), visit the MAC website at, call 978-499-0050 or send a check to Maudslay Arts Center c / o Costello, 182 Whitehall Road, Amesbury MA 01913.

If you can’t do a show but want to help MAC, you can donate any amount to MAC online or learn about becoming a MAC friend. It’s as simple as that.
