WILMINGTON, MA — More than 150 residents attended the “Tribute To Woodstock” concert on Friday, October 18, 2019 in the Wilmington Middle School Auditorium.
The Workingman’s Band brought to life the music and spirit of the legendary 1969 Woodstock Festival — the most famous music festival of all time — that defined a generation and changed the world.
The free concert was organized by the Sarah DJ Carter Lecture Committee.
“Everyone had a ball. They were really in a grove. A few members of the audience were even dancing,” said Committee member Ann Berghuas.
The committee’s funding comes from an endowment left to the Town in 1907 through the will of the late Sarah D. J. Carter. Carter requested that these events, which are held annually, remain free of charge and open to the public.
The committee is comprised of five residents appointed by the Wilmington Town Manager to serve three-year terms. Throughout the year, the committee is on the lookout for talented musicians and entertaining programs to present to residents and friends of the Town of Wilmington.
