2nd Wednesdays

2nd Wednesdays is a series of free lectures, concerts, and special arts events for all adults in the community. This series spotlights local talent and provides a first-rate cultural experience.  Its other aim, no less important, is to afford community adults an opportunity to spend time sharing culture and conversation with neighbors. It’s held on the second Wednesday of each month at 7:00 pm.

** Due to COVID-19, 2nd Wednesdays will take place digitally (when possible) until further notice. Subscribe here to receive email updates with links to view the online lectures and presentations, or check this page regularly. **

2nd Wednesdays attendees enjoy jazz in the garden.

Virtual Presentation Viewing Instructions and Tips

2nd Wednesdays Live Events will be streamed using Microsoft Teams software. We recommend you test the links beforehand to troubleshoot any problems. When you click the link, a screen should appear prompting you to select “Download the Windows app” or “Watch on the web instead.” Choose whichever is preferable to you. When you see the words “The live event hasn’t started yet,” you have successfully opened the Teams Live Event. You can close out and join again when you’re ready on Wednesday evening!

  • A few tips:
    • If you choose to watch on the web and you have an Apple device, we recommend using the Google Chrome browser. If your computer automatically opens it in a different browser, you can simply copy/paste the link into the Google Chrome address bar.
    • If you choose to download the app, we recommend doing so in advance, as it takes a few minutes.
    • If you run into any problems, please email vlpnews@villagelearningplace.org and we will try our best to assist you.
