A Look Back and the Way Forward

As you can see from the map above, the 20 online Virtual Concerts Unity Hall presented in 2020 were enjoyed by viewers throughout the country.  Each was also viewed by an audience considerably larger than the capacity of our historic theater. A grant from CNY Arts, Member support and viewer tips to each musician's virtual tip jar helped provide some income to many area musicians during a year that their paid gigs were few and far between.  These concerts are still free to enjoy here.

With vaccines rolling out, we are optimistic that we'll be able to resume concerts at the Hall at some point in 2021 and be able to thank you in person for your support. In the meantime, know that yours is greatly appreciated! 

Handsome and historic Unity Hall is one of Central New York’s most exciting homes for live music, theater, entertaining spoken word, and hands-on programs throughout the year.  Our goal is to give you the best listening experience and the most fun you’ve had in a long, long time in our beautifully restored 19th century upstairs theater as well as in our more intimate downstairs dining room/ performance space.

Unity Hall now offers an ongoing calendar of diverse music events, presenting acts ranging from Grammy Award winners and international performers to popular regional acts and aspiring local musicians. We also offer live theatrical presentations, lectures, art exhibitions, video presentations of classic concerts, and other cultural events.  

Unity Hall is also available for rent for public, social, and business events (click

Unity Hall is located in Barneveld, New York, a short and scenic 20-minute drive from the cities of Utica and Rome (click here for address information and directions).
