CLEVELAND, Miss.— In celebration of music, the arts and the return of spring, the Delta State University Concert Bands will present an outdoor community concert, featuring an engaging and entertaining repertoire, beginning at 6:30 pm on Friday, April 16 on the green space in downtown Cleveland, Mississippi.
This concert is in partnership with this year’s Crosstie Arts & Jazz Festival.
“Due to restrictions put in place to prevent the spread of COVID-19, the Delta State Concert Bands have not been able to perform in over a year,” said Assistant Director of Bands, Josh Armstrong “We are excited to bring this performance to the people of Cleveland to help create a happy, light-hearted experience similar to community band concerts of days gone by.”
Crosstie President Michelle Fuquay says, “We are excited this year to be partnering with Cleveland’s Delta Roots Music Project and the Delta Arts Alliance to feature several artists through ‘mini-Crosstie’ events in conjunction with the live music concerts downtown.”
This event is free and open to the public. Attendees are encouraged to bring chairs, blankets, and friends to welcome this celebration of music and the arts. Social distancing guidelines are recommended. In the event of inclement weather, the event will be held the following day, April 17, at the same time and at the same location.
