Wilton For Living | The Arts In Wilton
The arts thrive in Wilton. Professional actors, artists and musicians have long found Wilton’s unique setting and its distance to New York just enough to find inspiration between engagements.
Non professionals find numerous outlets for their talents including:
The Wilton Playshop: Connecticut’s oldest community theater.
Wilton Singers: An adult auditioned chorus.
Acoustic Wilton: Comprised of both student and adult musicians, Acoustic Wilton performs concerts to benefit education.
Wilton’s Children’s Theater: Extremely popular with Wilton’s aspiring actors in grades 4 through 8.
Wilton Rocks for Food: An annual concert to benefit the Wilton Food Pantry with performances by numerous Wilton musicians.
Weir Farm Art Center: The former home of Impressionist painter Alden Weir offers classes and artist-in-residence programs.
Wilton performing venues, which include the The Clune Center for the Arts and the Brubeck Room at the Wilton Library named for composer, pianist and longtime resident Dave Brubeck, host several of these performance groups along with other performances and concerts.
