GRAND ISLAND, STUHR MUSEUM – For the first time since 2012, the Meadowlark Music Festival is returning to Stuhr Museum’s Hornday Family Arbor this Thursday, July 16th. The gates open at 6 p.m. with the music beginning at 7:30.
The Meadowlark Music Festival, which organizes world class musical performances around Nebraska each summer, is bringing Christian Howes and his jazz fusion group, who have performed across the world, to Stuhr Museum. Howes is touring in support of his 13th studio album entitled “Southern Exposure” which features world-famous accordionist Richard Galliano. During his performance, Howes and company will “venture into the Latin music realm and showcase idiomatic styles from Brazil, Argentina, Cuba and Spain” according to his website www.christianhowes.com.
The performance is outdoors, so dress for the weather and bring a lawn chair or blanket for this event. In case of rain the performance will be moved to College Park, across the street from Stuhr Museum. The concert is in the direct lead up to the opening of the Stuhr Building on July 19th and we cannot think of a better way to celebrate than the return of the Meadowlark Music Festival. This event is sponsored, in part, by Principal Financial Group.
Tickets are $15 for the general public and $10 for Stuhr Museum members. Advanced tickets are not required and may be purchased at our gatehouse the evening of the show. More information will be available soon at this page or call (308) 385-5316.
