There is a lot going on this weekend in our little town of Brevard and I thought I would share a few things that are happening. Chris and I plan to do a few of these things but there are a lot of things going on so we will never be able to do them all.
First up– who doesn’t want to support the arts? This yearly event is a fun way for Transylvania Community Arts Council to raise money and have fun at the same time. A rubber duck race is the perfect summer activity. Watch the rubber ducks race down the creek at the college and cheer yours on to victory.
Of course with the holiday weekend there will be some fun celebrations. Heart of Brevard shares about all that is going on on their website here.
One of my favorite things to do is to go to the Pendergrast Family Patriotic Pops Concert at Brevard Music Center. It is almost always my favorite concert of the year. Tickets are still available and can be bought online here.
PENDERGRAST FAMILY PATRIOTIC POPS!
Tuesday, July 4 – 2:00 PM | Whittington-Pfohl Auditorium
Celebrate Independence Day with Patriotic Pops at Brevard Music Center. Hear the Brevard Symphonic Winds joined by the Seraph Brass as they perform inspirational American music, traditional Sousa marches, and Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture complete with the sounds of live cannon!
Music abounds in our area and there is definitely no shortage of places to go for live music. Creekside Market and Grill just down the road from us will be featuring Wayne Bishop and Friends from 6- 9 on Saturday, July 1st.
Another great spot for music in Brevard is 185 King Street. On Saturday, June 30, Saddletramp will be performing at this great venue. According to their website, Saddletramp is WNC’s Premier Classic Country Show Band. Fronted by Grammy Member and American Idol Golden Ticket Winner Blake Ellege, Saddletramp plays all of your favorite Classic Country and Radio Hits as well as original music written in the same style.
Another event is sponsored by the Transylvania County Library and features a special musical group on Friday, June 30th.
he final summer show on June 30 will offer a rare opportunity to catch Fellow Pynins, an Ashland, Oregon based contemporary folk duo. The duo possesses a keen and bucolic sense of vocal harmony and song craft and performs predominantly original music alongside a few reworked traditional ballads gathered from their travels. Find out more about Fellow Pynins here.
Our own neighborhood will be hosting a few events, as well, that we will be taking part in. The one thing I am pretty excited about is a traditional bagpipe player who will be playing on Friday night on the golf course. How fun will that be? On July 3rd, Connestee Falls celebrates the 4th of July will all kinds of musical groups, food and fun at our Lake Atagahi Park. Chris and I are happy to be around this year to be able to take in some of the activities.
Wherever you are, whatever you do, please be safe and enjoy a safe celebration. See you back here on Monday with a new Comments for a Cause recipient. Make sure to leave me a comment today to support our June recipient – VeDA Vestibular Disorders Association.
