The Weekender: Just Sing, Sing a Song!
Music fills the air this weekend and beyond as Union County comes alive with the sound of music. The choices vary from a delightful duet to the music of the movies with something for everyone.
Friedrich Nietzsche once said “Without music, life would be a mistake.” There is no mistaking that this weekend is filled with beautiful music in Union County. You can listen to a free concert by Mezzo Soprano Kathryn Krasovec or stop by and enjoy Madame Pat Tandy perform at the Salem Roadhouse Café. Reeves-Reed Arboretum is presenting Marquee Melodies: The Music of the Movies offering an opportunity for a sing-along.
No matter which genre of music you prefer, there is something for everyone this weekend. Check out the Patch calendars for more events and feel free to add your event to the calendar.
