The HNC Foundation Brings Back the Music in Nature Concert Series this Summer
OKEMOS - This year, the Harris Nature Center Foundation brings back the Music in Nature live concert series at the gathering circle located next to the Harris Nature Center on Sunday, June 13 from 4:00 - 6:00 pm, and Sunday, September 19 from 4:00 - 6:00 pm.
Music in Nature concert is a series of live events that features local Michigan bands and musicians to play music for the public to enjoy while walking around the Harris Nature Center. The first event featured an old-time folk music band, the “Pretty Shaky String,” that played music from the Appalachia, Mid West, and French-Canadian influences using classical string instruments.
“We want you to be able to hear the music no matter where you are at the Nature Center, so you could be walking the trails, your kids could be playing at the nature exploration area, or you could be picnicking, and you can hear the music from all over,” said Kati Adams, the event coordinator at the Harris Nature Center.
Jim Buscetta, the president of the HNC Foundation, has stated that the purpose of the Music in Nature concert series was to incentivize programs that support the different exhibits and projects built around the Harris Nature Center.
“One of the ways we are doing that is we are attempting to sell some additional engraved bricks for the patio associated with the new pavilion at the Harris Nature Center, and those proceeds would go to pave the trail from the existing paved trail over to the platform that we built out for the Harris Nature Center,” said President Buscetta.
The HNC Foundation will be hosting another event later this year on September 19, featuring Monte Pride, a Michigan Born and Raised Singer-songwriter and fingerstyle Guitarist who tells stories of love, loss, and healing through his soul-stirring music.
