Celebrating Our 51st Season!

We are very excited to announce that Live Music is returning to the Otesaga Hotel Ballroom with a special performance by the Oshima Brothers on Saturday, May 22, 2021 at 7:30pm.

NOTE: Due to COVID restrictions there will be some changes in ticketing.

Tickets, of which there are only 140, are $15 each. Everybody attending must have a ticket. Tickets may only be purchased through the link above or at the door.

We will be adhering to NYS COVID guidelines in effect on 5/22. Currently that means all audience members must wear a mask and be seated throughout the event.


Hi Everyone,

Cooperstown Concert Series had four concerts planned, on our way to a full six season season in 2020-21. Then COVID happened.

As of today, our 2020-21 season is cancelled. We do hope that we can begin planning 2021-22, when that becomes viable for our audience, artists and volunteers.

Due to COVID-19 and the increasing amount of precautionary cancellations happening in our area, Concert Series is cancelling the March 21 Black Feathers show.

Not the way we intended to end our 50th season, but we want our audience, and our artists, to be safe for year 51.

All individual ticket purchases will be refunded in the coming days.

The John Jorgenson Quintet played before an audience that seemed to be on its feet from the first notes.

It was a triumphant return for the Grammy-winning guitarist, who first appeared for Concert Series 10 years ago.

As they did almost 12 years ago (to the day!), the Alexis P Suter Band played to a packed house at the Otesaga Hotel. Another amazing show, powerful, emotional, aggressive and fun!

(Thanks to Christine Chen and Jackie Parry for the photos).

Today, Cooperstown Concert Series presented Julia Perdue, Director of the Cooperstown Food Pantry, a check for $250.

The most recent show in Concert Series’ 50th season, the Penny Knight Band, raised money for the Food Pantry.

As we’ve done for 50 years, Cooperstown Concert Series appreciates our village and all who make it so wonderful.

The Cooperstown Concert Series is donating 50% of all profits from the December 7, 2019 concert featuring the Penny Knight Band. Audience members are encouraged to bring nonperishable donations or make cash contributions to the Food Pantry.

Come to the show to celebrate our 50th Season AND help out the Food Pantry.

Once again, Stewart’s Shops is sponsoring a Cooperstown Concert Series show, and this time it’s part of our 50th season!

(We won’t tell you which show, because we’re waiting to unveil our entire schedule, but based on past history, you’re gonna love it!)

Jeff, store manager Christina Haynes and Jim met at the Cooperstown store (108 Chestnut St.) to celebrate and hold a big check.

Thank you Stewart’s Shops for once again being part of the Cooperstown Concert Series team!

The Lonely Heartstring Band packed the Hall of Fame to close Cooperstown Concert Series’ 49th season. It was a fantastic end to a very strong season.

Next year will be our 50th year! Concert Series is planning many celebratory events in the community, so stay tuned. Keep an eye on news by “liking,” and looking at, our Facebook page.

Until the Fall, thank you to everyone who made this season so great.
