The Lewisburg Arts Council is delighted to announce a change in the 2015 Music in the Park summer concert series: the series will run through August 26, a week later than usual. The series will still close with the Lewisburg Area High School marching band under the direction of Justin Hill. The August 19 music will be a musical theater revue with the RiverStage Community Theatre. Directed by Diane Scott, RiverStage singers and actors will perform favorite Broadway songs from Pippin, Gypsy, Anything Goes, Phantom of the Opera, Into the Woods, The Music Man, Oklahoma, and many, many more!
Music in the Park concerts begin at 7:00 pm in Hufnagle Park (Market Street, between 5th and 6th Streets) in downtown Lewisburg. Come a little early and buy dinner and/or dessert from the food trucks: SBC Catering of Bloomsburg on August 19 SBC Catering of Bloomsburg, and That Kitchen Witch of Lewisburg on August 26. Both donate a little of their proceeds to the Friends of Music in the Park endowment fund.
In the event of rain the August 19 show will be held in the historic Campus Theatre at 413 Market Street, and the August 26 show will be in the Lewisburg Area High School auditorium. Rain information will be announced on the Arts Council’s Facebook page, on local radio, and on the Campus Theatre marquee.
The Lewisburg Arts Council gratefully acknowledges the generosity of the Woodcock Foundation for the Appreciation of the Arts to support this year’s Music in the Park. The Woodcock Foundation's mission statement:
So long as there are little children to be introduced to the creative arts and harried adults who missed exposure to great art and literature and timeless music to be shared across all age group, there will be a need for efforts to encourage the appreciation of the arts.
