Highland Lakes

Country Club and Community Association

Concert Series

The ongoing mission of the Highland Lakes Concert Series is to invite established, critically acclaimed musicians, comedians, and performance artists on tour in the New York metropolitan area to perform at the Clubhouse’s Seckler Stage throughout the year.

The Concert Series is spearheaded by community members who have decades of professional experience in the entertainment industry (booking, technical, administrative and maintenance). They leverage their expertise and industry relationships to bring performers to Highland Lakes that would not likely be passing through otherwise.  In order to attract such talent and meet the demanding needs of these performers, the Club acquired and installed a state-of-the-art sound system. (Read what Inside NJ magazine thinks about it.)

Tickets for Concert Series events will be made available in advance to members-in-good-standing and at the door on a first-come, first-served basis—if members do not purchase all available tickets to a given event, additional tickets to that event may be made available to the general public at the door to help support costs. Event capacity is limited to the rated occupancy of the Seckler and Craft rooms at the Clubhouse, and the maximum capacity will vary from show to show depending on how seating is organized.

Bands and artists interested in potentially performing as an opening act at Seckler Stage should submit electronic press kits, tour dates, press clippings, social media links and stage plot information to concertseries@hlcc.org.

Club members interested in receiving updates and notification about Concert Series news and upcoming events, and/or learning how they can volunteer or assist are invited to contact concertseries@hlcc.org.
