The IVY CHORD Coffee House is an evening of acoustic music and entertainment. Since 1999, the IVY CHORD Coffee House has presented both local musicians and musicians from afar. The music is eclectic, to say the least, ranging from passionate Celtic ballads, stirring stories, to humorous anecdotes. The IVY CHORD Coffee House specializes in music from the heart -- vocal and instrumental music about everyday life.
All proceeds from the IVY CHORD Coffee House go directly toward the many ministries of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Reading.
The Sanctuary and Fellowship Hall of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Reading, MA are fully accessible, with ramps, a wheelchair lift, and a handicapped bathroom.
If you have questions please call 781-944-0494 (Monday through Friday, 9AM to noon) or 781-229-9394 (9AM to 9PM), or email our coordinator.
If you are a musician we would like to get to know you. Please mail promotional materials to the church.
A limited number of tickets are available at the door.
These programs are supported in part by a grant from the Reading Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
