Music in the Garden

Delhi Township isn’t the only one celebrating a birthday this year.

The Holt Community Arts Council’s Music in the Garden concert series has turned 10 years old, and will celebrate with a time-based theme in 2017. All four acts this summer will be from a specific period of time, including the ’30s/’40s, ’50s, ’60s and ’80s.

Music in the Garden is a series of free concerts in the amphitheater in Veterans Memorial Gardens, a park behind the Delhi Township Community Services Center at 2074 Aurelius Road.

The concerts are funded in part by a mini-grant from the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs and the Arts Council of Greater Lansing. They are also funded by donations from local businesses, individuals, Delhi Township and the Delhi Township Downtown Development Authority.

The series begins on July 6 with Starfarm, a popular band that plays hits from the ’80s; on July 13, the Flat River Big Band will take you back to the swinging big band era of the ’30s and ’40s; on July 20, Magic Bus will arrive with groovy tunes from the ’60s; and on July 27, Billy Mack and the Juke Joint Johnnies will end the series with some serious rock-a-billy, ’50s style. Each of these free concerts begin at 7 p.m.
