The Unitarian Universalist Society of Greater Springfield that sponsored the uNi Coffeehouse Concert Series is now in the process of creating a NEW CONCERT SERIES.

Welcome to the website of the uNi Coffeehouse Concert Series, sponsored by the Unitarian Universalist Society of  Greater Springfield. The name uNi is derived from the first three letters in Unitarian Universalist but intended to be pronounced similar to the phrase, "You and I". This name expresses the sharing which occurs among performers and audience at these intimate concerts.* Our concerts are held one Saturday each month, September through May. One or two additional concerts are sometimes added to the schedule.

* All coffeehouse style evening concerts are held in Friendship Hall of the 

Unitarian Universalist Society of Greater Springfield Meetinghouse, 
245 Porter Lake, Drive 
Springfield, MA 01106 
bordering on Longmeadow and the lovely, wooded Forest Park, easily reached from Interstate Route 91. 


Occasionally concerts may be moved to the larger sanctuary space at the same meetinghouse location. 

   

* All coffeehouse style evening concerts begin at 7:30 p.m. and typically end around 10:00 p.m.


* All seats are $15 at the door (unless otherwise indicated). 

* Reservations are appreciated, but there are usually seats available on the evening of the concert.  Reservations are  held only until 7:20 p.m. and are not for any particular seats. We recommend arriving earlier for best seating and parking. Doors usually open about 6:45 p.m (new time).
