Music Along the River

Celebrate Memorial Day weekend with not just one but two concerts--both of which are outside. There is just something about spending a beautiful evening outside along the river listening to great music.

On Sunday, May 27, grab a blanket or chair (maybe a picnic, too) and head down to the 8th Street Bulkhead for the Candlelight Jazz Series. Local jazz duo quietSTORM will fill the air with their own brand of smooth jazz. Admission is $6. The concert is from 8 - 9:30 p.m.

On Monday evening, May 28, the Augusta Concert band presents its annual Memorial Day tribute concert on the river. Admission is FREE. The 7 p.m. concert is at the Jessye Norman Amphitheatre.

Call 706.821.1754 for more information about either of these concerts.
