MUSEP with friends means fabulous summer fun. Local sponsors and the City of Greensboro bring music to the community each Sunday. The venues are mostly public parks and they are always free. Yesterday's concert was held in the Guilford Courthouse National Military Park off of Old Battleground Avenue& New Garden Road. The evening was one of country music with first, Katelyn Marks and then, Lisa Dames. It was as if Dolly Parton and Patsy Cline were in the park with us. The above photo was not our best at capturing yesterday's tremendous crowd. However, it captures the spirit of our city's great parks.
To the left, you see the 27' tall statue of Nathanael Greene, Revolutionary War hero and our city's namesake. In front of Greene is one of our giant oak trees; they sure help keep the green in Greensboro! The statue and the mighty oak dwarf the people en route to their seats. At the military park, being surrounded by trees enhances the acoustics and the seating area is great- plenty of shade and a gradual slope down to the musicians. The park should host more concerts.
Next Sunday at 6:30, the Greensboro Concert Band will play at Latham Park- a city park off of Wendover at Bessemer. There are four more concerts and then the concerts, and summer, come to a screeching halt!
Happy Monday, folks!
