Celebrating the Arts Vibe in Randolph – March Highlights

A world class performance hall. Multiple art galleries. Subterranean concert venues. Art is a way of life here in Randolph, and when it comes to small town Vermont dining, we serve up more than just delicious food – we bring artistic energy! Here’s a few events happening during the month of March:

Chandler Center for the Arts - Where the arts and community meet

Missy Raines - Friday, Mar. 8

Grammy-nominated Missy Raines was named 2021 International Bluegrass Music Association Bass Player of the Year, for the 10th time, more than any other bass player in the history of the organization. Missy Raines has proven herself without a doubt as an iconic bluegrass instrumentalist. This is a "Pay What You Can" event! 

Perk Up Pianist -  Sunday, Mar. 10

Often referred to as the next Victor Borge, Sarah Hagen has transformed her award-winning role as “concert pianist” into a stand-up, or rather, sit-down comedy. Pairing anecdotes from the road with some of her favorite pieces by Chopin, Debussy, and Liszt, Sarah takes audiences deep inside the world of a classical musician as she shares her earnest efforts to keep her spirits up amid troublesome times.
