UPDATE: Tonight's show has been moved to the Norwich High School auditorium, located at 89 Midland Drive, due to the expected inclement weather.

NORWICH — The annual NBT Bank Summer Concert Series begins Thursday at 7 p.m. The musical performance will be from Ana Popovic, blues guitar player, and her six-piece band.

COVID restrictions put the summertime favorite on hold last year, but this year the restrictions were lifted just in time for the concerts.

"There really aren't restrictions anymore, we're just required to put up some signage advising people who haven't been vaccinated to wear masks and social distance" said Chenango Blues Association organizer Eric Larsen. "It's going to look a lot like it's always looked in the past."

This year's return marks the 25th year of the Summer Concert Series, said Larsen. The weekly concerts usually draw anywhere from several hundred spectators to a couple thousand.

"Over the years I'd say it's steadily gone up, and now we have anywhere from six or seven hundred to over two thousand," said Larsen.
