World Wide Wednesday Music Concerts

   Friday, July 25th, 2008 - by: Brian Herzog, Head of Reference

C'est Si Bon PerformingLike past summers, the Library's World Wide Wednesdays summer concert series is proving very fun and popular. Even though rain has forced two concerts to be held indoors at the Chelmsford Senior Center, the audiences have all enjoyed the music and dancing each week.

This week's performance by InkasWasi, brought to life the color of Peruvian culture, through their costumes, songs and dance. Check out some photos from past concerts to be part of the fun.

There are three more concerts scheduled for this summer:

  • July 30 - Mariachi Mexamerica - songs of their colorful culture Guadalajara, Mexico
  • Aug 6 - Jolly Kopperschmidts - traditional German music in 'oom pa' fashion complete in lederhosen
  • Aug 13 - ContraBanditos - New England Contra, Barn Dance, Celtic, Old Time Fiddle and contemporary

All performances start at 6:30 p.m., and are held outside at the MacKay Library - in case of bad weather, performances are moved indoors at the Chelmsford Senior Center.
