Thank goodness for the Chincoteague Cultural Alliance! This Chincoteague arts organization is behind so many of the cultural events which enrich the Chincoteague Island community. In addition to the Movies in the Park, the Second Saturday Art Stroll and other events, the Chincoteague Cultural Alliance also sponsors a wonderful series of acoustic musical concerts.
If you love listening to professional musicians playing “unplugged,” the 2012 Chincoteague Concert Series is truly a treat!
