Look for family folk concert on Middlebury green this Wednesday
MIDDLEBURY — On Wednesday evening, June 22, downtown Middlebury will come alive with folk music on the green.
This free mini-concert is part of the inaugural concert in the Summer Music Series as part of the Experience Middlebury Initiative to bring people into downtown and to foster community within the larger Middlebury area. The series will consist of one Wednesday evening concert each of the summer months.
The theme for this week’s concert is “Folk with interactive early childhood music with Ashley Storrow & Molly McEachen.” Performers Storrow and McEachen are faculty at the Middlebury Community Music Center, which has partnered with the Better Middlebury Partnership (BMP) to bring the series to the community.
MCMC Director Sadie Brightman is excited for the opportunity to further the center’s outreach mission in bringing music to the community.
“Putting classical music in that kind of setting (the green) is unusual, but really great,” she said.
The program for the concert was put together with children in mind, and BMP will bring in a bubble station and free face painting on the green. Restaurants, stores and sidewalk sales will also be part of the festivities as stores stay open until 6 p.m. for shopping and dining before the concert. Some restaurants will be providing to-go boxes for dinner picnics at the concert, and the Marquis Theater will be offering discounted popcorn.
The concert will start at 6 p.m. on the green with plenty of room for blankets, picnics and dancing.
