The Concert Truck

The Concert Truck is a mobile music venue that strengthens communities by redefining the concert experience and making live music accessible to everyone.

Impassioned by their love for music, pianists Nick Luby and Susan Zhang converted a 16-foot box truck into a fully functioning mobile concert hall, complete with lights, sound system, and piano. Since then, The Concert Truck has presented concerts across the country in city streets, music and arts festivals, schools, neighborhoods, parks… anywhere you can think to park a truck. Nick, Susan, and the Truck have been featured by Voice of America – VOA, Minnesota Public Radio, the Washington Post, the Baltimore Sun, WYPR Maryland, and many local TV news stations and online publications and syndicates.

In addition to sharing original programming with local communities, The Concert Truck strengthens relationships  between arts organizations and the communities they serve. In the 2020-2021 season, The Concert Truck partnered with the Kennedy Center’s Washington National Opera, Virginia Arts Festival, University of South Carolina, Southeastern Piano Festival, and Dallas Symphony Orchestra to deliver music to their local communities. Additionally, The Concert Truck created an online children’s show in partnership with the Four Seasons Chamber Music Festival that has been presented to over 55,000 students in North Carolina schools. Other past presenters include Minnesota Public Radio and the Smithsonian.

The Concert Truck’s Music Worcester performance on September 10 will feature New York-based bassoonist and composer Joy Guidry.

This performance is free and open to the public.

Patrons should bring chairs or blankets for open seating on the lawn.

Patrons may also bring food or drinks to enjoy during the performance.

Tours of the property’s historical sites will be available to small groups between the hours of 5-6pm. Please arrive early if interested in a property tour.
