Parking available at GHS for concert tonight
GREENFIELD — With a large turnout expected for tonight’s Paul Calcari retirement music concert, more on-site parking has been opened up at the high school.
It will be the final show for retiring music director Calcari and he will be joined by hundreds of his former students from the past 27 years. The show starts at 7 p.m. and each ticket is $10, with all proceeds going to the music department.
High School Principal Donna Woodcock said parking areas that have been taken over by high school construction crews will be relinquished for the night to make access to the concert easier. Construction crews have opened up gates in the fencing that surrounds the site of the future high school. There will be about 100 parking spots at the school, she said.
However, all foot traffic must enter the school from the new temporary entrance at the north of the building facing Silver Street.
The music department said it still plans to run a free shuttle to four other parking locations: Cherry Rum Plaza, Four Corners Elementary School, Blessed Sacrament Church (221 Federal St.) and the Greenfield Farmers Cooperative Exchange.
Doors open at 5 p.m. and the show will start two hours later. A reception at the high school for Calcari will take place following the concert.
