Bring Music Back To Matoaka Amphitheater

Lake Matoaka Amphitheater at W&MAre there any others whoLakeMatoakaamphitheater would like to see music return to Matoaka Amphitheater ? Please post your comments below and lets see if we can make it happen..It’s a shame for such a beautiful facility to sit there unused except for occassional uses.

  1. Please bring back concerts at Matoaka Amphitheater, Most of the other localities have free concerts. How can we make this happen here /

  2. we have an obligation to use this beautiful facility. People can relax here and listen to craftsmen and women who have taken years to learn and express themselves musically. As a mom who has taken the time and trouble to have her sons both study music, it is a shame to let it go to waste. Without the arts there is a ghetto of the mind that takes over and it isn’t good. Music can lift you to heights and comradeship that other events just can’t do. Affordable entertainment in tough times can really make a difference in the quality of life for families that can’t afford the other options in the area. Be real, get it together!!
