This annual summer concert is held every year in honor of Barbara Corbett Dobson and Dave Dobson. Their family could think of no better way to honor them than by holding a free summer music event that can be enjoyed by the entire community. Please consider making a donation to The Barbara Corbett Dobson and Dave Dobson Memorial Fund at the HCA to help continue this wonderful summer event.

The Hopkinton Center for the Arts offers arts to all people. Classes, productions, and exhibitions serve an inclusive community of students, performers, and exhibiting artists diverse in age, ability, experience, ethnicity, and geography.

In the visual arts, theater, music, and dance, HCA annually offers over 200 classes to more than 1,000 students, from preschool to seniors, drawn from more than 40 neighboring cities and towns. In 2015 the HCA opened its new arts center, with newly renovated classrooms, a new 200-seat performance space, and new gallery spaces. The Delbridge Family Performance Space and the Lotvin Family Gallery annually present dozens of productions and exhibitions.
