2019 Lineup for Music in the Park Series
Upper Arlington’s Music in the Parks is kicking off at Kingsdale on June 6th at 7pm. Bring your lawn chair or blanket to the Green at Kingsdale, 3150 Tremont Road, and enjoy the music of Conspiracy. Parking and admission are free.
Everything you’ve heard about this Conspiracy is true: it’s slick, funky, it’s soulful – and it never stops until everybody’s having a good time. With it’s crack three-piece horn section and four amazing vocalists, this group is one of the most sought after in the region.
We are thrilled to have Songs at the Center perform this year at Music in the Parks. Songs at the Center is a national public television series showcasing singer-songwriters performing “in the round.” Series creator and host of the show, Eric Gnezda is an award-winning songwriter and television journalist. He and his work have been featured on media around the world. Joining Eric for the concert will be the Lil’ Red & Rooster and Olivia Millerschin.
Lil’ Red & Rooser is a contagiously charming international duo that creates electric band blues in a roots blues format. Touching, refreshing with a bit of humor, their originals bring the 40’s and 50’s blues and rhythm and blues into the present day.
At 23 years old, singer-songwriter Olivia Millerschin has composed and released two full-length albums. She was a quarter finalist on America’s Got Talent, won the Great American Song Contest, is featured on Republic Records soundtrack to a recent Mitch Albom novel, and has music in national film and TV. She plays ukulele, piano and guitar, headlines national tours, and opens for established artists.
Beginning in 1995, the Asian Festival is a popular event that takes place in May and promotes the importance of cultural diversity in building a vibrant, prosperous, and healthy community. This week we are bringing a bit of the Asian Festival to Upper Arlington. Pandesal is a Filipino band that has previously performed at the Asian Festival. Joining them is The EJ Duo, an R&B and Pop band that specializes in Asian music.
Brought to you by Ohio Dance, Thiossane (pronounced cha- sahn) was formed with the express purpose of bringing authentic West African cultural representation to a variety of local, national, and international communities. Thiossane introduces the richness of West African culture through dance and music to create a space of learning and growth in traditional African culture.
July 11: Camp Jazz
Students have been working hard all week to bring you a great performance with The Jazz Arts Group’s Jazz Academy. Throughout camp students will explore the ins and outs of singing with a live band, including style, technique and tips to take their singing to the next level. Spots still available to enroll!
Our last concert of the summer will feature a night of Jazz with the Columbus Jazz Orchestra, led by world-renowned band leader and trumpet virtuoso Byron Stipling. By incorporating contemporary arrangements into its repertoire and commissioning new arrangements and masterworks for jazz orchestra, the CJO promotes the future of big band jazz and cultivates the dynamic, adventurous spirit that has kept audiences coming back again and again.
