Music Friday is “Spreading Out”
For those of you who have enjoyed the free, Music Friday concerts in Lancaster Square for the past three years, the summer 2012 Music Friday season will bring you even more free music in downtown Lancaster.
Music For Everyone, in partnership with the Mayor’s Office of Special Events (MOOSE) and the Lancaster County Community Foundation is sponsoring additional music acts on street corners, alleys and other public spaces throughout the downtown area. While the main stage concert in Lancaster Square will continue to offer music, food, wine and beer, there will be at least 10 additional “street spots” throughout the downtown area where various musicians, drummers and singers will be stationed to spread the sound of music beyond Lancaster Square to every nook and cranny in the city.
Along with the main stage in Lancaster Square and the additional street spots, MFE is once again sponsoring 11 sites for Keys for the City pianos. Additionally, MFE, MOOSE and LCCF have been working with local restaurants, bars and galleries to encourage them to sponsor musical acts on these Third Friday events.
“The result will be close to 40 music venues – from street corners, to galleries, to restaurants, bars and Keys for the City pianos,” said John Gerdy, president of Music For Everyone. “That’s a lot of free music. Downtown Lancaster is going to be hoppin’ on Music Fridays!”
The First Music Friday of the summer season will be on May 18. Music begins at 6:00 PM.
