Arts Council to Launch Mid-Day Music Series

September 22 – The Decatur Area Arts Council will present the first show Wednesday in a series of daytime concerts in collaboration with Millikin University.

The “Mid-Day Music” program will debut at 12:15 p.m. with a 30-minute performance in the Anne Lloyd Gallery at the Madden Arts Center in downtown Decatur. Future shows are planned for November 7, January 23 and March 20.

Each event will showcase a preview of selections from the four Faculty Recital Series concerts. The free shows are designed to accommodate lunch breaks and will feature different musicians, instruments and types of music.

The first performance will have musical excerpts from the “American Songbook” concert with tunes by Irving Berlin, Cole Porter, George and Ira Gershwin, and Richard Rodgers. Featured musicians will be Justin John Moniz (tenor), Steve Widenhofer (piano), Brian Justinson (drums) and Chris Nolte (bass).
