Annual Tuesday Tunes Concert Series Underway
The Tuesday Tunes concert series — presented Newtown Parks & Recreation, C.H. Booth Library and sponsored by the Friends of the Library — has returned to the Dickinson Park bandshell. Concerts are planned for Tuesday afternoons, at 2 pm, and are suitable for young audiences with parent/guardian.
Under a beautiful sunny sky, bilingual singer-songwriter Flor Bromley had the honor of opening this year’s series with a very well attended performance on June 28.
Families, friends, and groups of children already at the town park for summer camp all descended on the field near the park’s Deep Brook Road entrance for the free event. The proud Peruvian-born entertainer did not have to wait long to see children dancing along in front of the bandstand stage. She and bassist Dave Hertzberg kept the energy up for the 60-minute performance, which was enjoyed whether attendees were up and dancing or just enjoying the great weather from chairs or blankets on the ground.
The 2022 schedule continues as follows: July 5, Benanna Band; July 12, Vanessa Trien; July 19, Francine Wheeler; July 26, Steve Elci and Friends; and August 2, Al deCant and Jill Kubeck.
In the event of rain, call the library (203-426-4533) for updates.
