Passport Series at Proctors Collaborative

The Passport Series brings Music Haven to Proctors Collaborative, “traveling the world one concert at a time.”

For 30 years, the Music Haven Concert Series has presented an amazing array of global sounds in Schenectady’s Central Park transporting summer seekers to locales like Yemen, Ukraine, Louisiana, Ireland and Peru without ever having to leave their seats.

Get ready to travel around the world – one concert at a time!

The Passport Series takes the same beloved world music that patrons of the park series have come to cherish and bring it to Proctors in Schenectady and Universal Preservation Hall in Saratoga so the party can continue all year.

Listen, dance, groove!
