Family-friendly Events Set for July 2, Aug. 6
The College of Southern Maryland (CSM) will present two outdoor, family-friendly, free concerts this summer on the Leonardtown Campus Lawn.
The Dixie Power Trio with the New Line Brass will perform New Orleans jazz, zydeco, traditional brass band standards and original compositions on July 2. Horizon will take the stage Aug. 6 and entertain with cover versions of songs from the 1950s to the 1970s. Both concerts will be held on the college’s front lawn from 1 to 3 p.m. In the case of rain, the concerts will be held in Building A, Auditorium.
“We’re excited about having two marvelous local bands to help us maintain the high spirits of our music performances in Leonardtown,” said Dr. Stephen Johnson, Chair of CSM’s Division of Communication, Arts and Humanities. “This year, we planned the styles of music to match Leonardtown’s summer-themed events, and I think everyone is in for a treat with some unique American-themed music in July and some ‘golden oldies’ for the beach theme in August.”
Both CSM Concerts on the Lawn are scheduled for Sundays in coordination with the town of Leonardtown’s and the Leonardtown Business Association’s summer-themed Friday and Saturday events, providing full weekends of opportunities to celebrate the season.
The Dixie Power Trio concert is made possible in part through support from the CSM Foundation. The Horizon concert is made possible in part by a grant from the St. Mary’s County Arts Council, awarded by the Maryland State Arts Council.
