Music For a Sunday Evening the Park a Greensboro summertime tradition is planning to be back in 2021 with live performances beginning August 8.
The season will officially kickoff in July with the concerts streamed live on the Creative Greensboro Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/CreativeGreensboro.
So, July and August 1 will be more like Music For A Sunday Evening In Your Own Backyard. But the plan is for four events beginning August 8 to be live performances at the White Oak Amphitheatre at the Greensboro Coliseum Complex.
In 2020, MUSEP kept planning live events and because of the COVID-19 restrictions they had to be cancelled and MUSEP ended up holding the events virtually. This year with COVID-19 going in the opposite direction, there are high hopes that the virus will cooperate and allow this much loved summer tradition to continue with live events.
The events which will be lived streamed beginning Sundays at 6 p.m. are:
July 11: Christian Anderson and the Philharmonia of Greensboro
July 18: Colin Cutler and the Greensboro Concert Band
July 25: Lauren Light Duo and the Greensboro Big Band
August 1: MUSEP the Musical, Broadway through the Decades
Then beginning Sunday, August 8, the events are planned to be held at the White Oak Amphitheatre beginning Sundays at 6 p.m.
August 8: Cory Luetjen and Sweet Dreams
August 15: Lorena Gullen Tango Ensemble and ALLL
August 22: doby and Shelia Star Productions
August 29: Soultrii and Farewell Friend
Free parking will be provided for the White Oak Amphitheatre events and guests will be allowed to bring their own food. Alcoholic beverages will be available for purchase at the event.
In the press release, Greensboro Chief Creative Economy Officer Ryan Deal said, “Greensboro loves music and the community building that happens when we experience it together. Our concert lineup this summer offers a little something for everyone. There are opportunities to connect virtually from home and in-person at the White Oak Amphitheatre, and a wide range of musical acts as diverse as our community”
White Oak does not permit food to be brought in usually, and there are restrictions on lawn chairs and personal items which may be brought in. Will these policies be relaxed for MUSEP?
