For six years, The Umbrella Concert Series has raised funds and awareness as The Umbrella expanded into the regional arts center it is today. Sold-out, intimate shows have featured artists like Lyle Lovett, Natalie Merchant, Indigo Girls, Lake Street Dive, and many more artists, with proceeds going to benefit programs at The Umbrella, and providing access and learning opportunities to students from Berklee and other regional music students. In addition, The Umbrella has been pleased to expand concert offerings through both rentals of our theaters and collaborations with regional partners.
