An Evening of Extraordinary Music & Beauty in Paradise
In 1999, David Hankinson, a trumpet player with the Annapolis Big Band invited the band to a bar-b-que and jam session at his home in Paradise, historic Ellenhurst.
Band members thought it would be an ideal opportunity to raise funds for a Paradise organization, so it was decided that the small concert would accept free will donations for the maintenance and upkeep of the Paradise Community Hall.
Thus the Moonlight Concert was born.
Now in its 16th year, the event brings together the entire community of Paradise who work to transform Ellenhurst into a true Paradis Terrestre as the Acadians called it, “Paradise on Earth”.
You are all invited to join us, bring your friends, your family, your picnic, but sorry, no pets.
Enjoy the music of the Big Band Era with the residents of Paradise.
