Thelma Sadoff Center for the Arts to postpone annual street concert

Thelma Sadoff Center for the Arts (THELMA) was set to host a concert with The Mavericks, a fundraiser for the arts, July 18. However due to the COVID-19 health crisis and current guidelines from state and local authorities, THELMA is postponing its annual street concert until summer 2021.

“This was an incredibly difficult decision as we know how much our community looks forward to our annual street concerts and how much our patrons love the band,” said Jacqui Corsi, THELMA Executive Director.

Tickets already purchased will be valid for the rescheduled date as it is announced. Patrons may also choose to have their tickets donated back to THELMA or be refunded. Each ticket purchaser is being contacted by THELMA staff. 

The Jimmys, a popular and award-winning blues band from the Madison area, was scheduled to open for The Mavericks, may still perform. Please check back for updates at

As a non-profit organization specializing in gatherings, THELMA relies on events, memberships, donors and patrons. 

“As so many others, THELMA is feeling the impact of COVID-19, however, with continued community support THELMA will be working diligently to maintain a safe environment and we greatly look forward to welcoming everyone back to our stunning facility,” Corsi said.

Corsi encourages all to follow THELMA’s social media and website for continued updates on how the mission of enriching our community through the arts continues.
