Fanwood — The Fanwood Performance Series celebrated 10 years of music, community, and incredible talent.

“This is a momentous occasion,” said series co-founder David Blechinger. “While the Fanwood Performance Series has grown and evolved in the 10 years since its creation, it has continued to serve as a mainstay in our community.”

This past April marked a decade since the Fanwood Performance Series put on its first show at the Patricia M. Kuran Cultural Arts Center, known as the "Old Carriage House.” Since the opening show, countless local artists have joined the Fanwood Performance Series and have contributed to its history.
