Chandler Center for the Arts is pleased to announce:
The 28th New World Festival Will Happen Despite Covid-19!
New World Festival Fans take heart!

On Sunday, September 6, at 7:30PM to 9:30PM Chandler’s New World Festival will stream music both live from Chandler Music Hall’s main stage in Randolph, and premier virtual performances from around the world, as well as include a small, socially-distanced live audience to hear Pete’s Posse, Dan Houghton and Rachel Clemente on the Chandler Music Hall stage.

Pre-recorded portions will feature content specific to the New World Festival and live and virtual audiences get to see them first at the Festival on September 6. John Doyle and Nuala Kennedy, the Cape Breton trio of Wendy MacIsaac, Mairi Rankin and Mac Morin, E.T.E., Connla, Cantrip, and the Touring Group and Youth Commission from Young Tradition Vermont, have all agreed to record special material for this year’s festival.

All the tickets for both the In-Person and Live stream options, will be sold through Chandler’s website at
