Sunday afternoons in Greensboro are delightful once Music for a Sunday Evening in the Park (MUSEP) has started. The above photo was taken a couple of weeks ago at the MUSEP event at Blandwood Mansion. Blandwood, located at 447 West Washington Street, is the restored home of North Carolina governor John Motley Morehead. The house, constructed by Charles Bland in 1795, was expanded and altered and ultimately completed in 1846. According to Preservation Greensboro, it has the distinction of being the oldest standing example of Italianate architecture in the United States. On the evening of the MUSEP concert, Blandwood volunteers allowed concert-goers to step inside and get a mini-tour of the mansion. For many, this was their first view of this very historic Greensboro building.
Every Sunday until August 23rd, a different musical group will be featured at a different venue in the city. It is a way to get people to visit all of the different corners of our city. This Sunday, the concert will start at 6:30 pm at Hester Park, 3906 Betula Street. The Greensboro Philharmonia will play classical and pops. BYOC- Bring your own chair and come out and be part of a great Greensboro tradition. As you can see from the above photo, these free MUSEP concerts are quite popular in our community.
*here is the schedule for the venues and they type of music.
