Westben is genuinely sorry to announce that Concerts at The Barn 2020 will not take place as originally planned. The cancellation of the summer season is in keeping with government guidelines and with concern for the safety and well-being of all the communities of artists, participants, patrons and volunteers. To reimagine this mandate, Westben has launched Sunshine Ahead! Currently offered online, this campaign seeks to connect, soothe and re-energize many communities, and keep the music flowing. It is a new and wonderful way to enjoy the Westben Garden from the safety of your own home.
