Directions To NE Voices Concerts

Once you’ve used your GPS to get to 200 Richardson Road, use the following directions to find the Carl J. Rondina Performing Arts Center.

A word to the wise: leave early. Northbound rush hour traffic is tough at this time of the evening.

From Graniteville Road:

Turn onto the access for CHS, which is directly across from Davis Rd. (You will see a sign for N.E. Voices.) The “Do Not Enter” street sign does not apply during evening hours, so you may enter here. Take the first right and follow this access road around the back of the school. If the first (small) parking lot is full, continue around the back of the school to a larger parking lot and the main entrance of the Carl J. Rondina Performing Arts Center.

From Richardson Road, Rear Entrance

An access road to Chelmsford High School can be found off of Richardson Road, next to the Harrington elementary school. Take this access road down a gentle hill. Continue straight through the stop sign. As the road curves to the right, you will see the entrance to the Carl J. Rondina Performing Arts Center as well as the gym. There is ample parking here.

From Richardson Road, Front Entrance – not a recommended access point for Friday night

Chelmsford High School is set far back from Richardson Road. The main entrance to CHS is marked by a stone sign. The access road is directly across from Crooked Spring Road. There is limited parking here at the front of the school. If you enter from the front, you will have to walk through and down a flight of stairs to get to the Carl J. Rondina Performing Arts Center (follow the signs.)
