Stories in the Night Sky & Albuquerque Concert Band Free Concert: August 6
If you haven’t been to one of this summer’s Stories in the Night Sky and Albuquerque Concert, you still have a chance to attend the final event on Wednesday August 6.
The Albuquerque Concert Band has been entertaining Albuquerque for more than 40 years, and the Anderson-Abruzzo Albuquerque International Balloon Museum does a pretty good job of entertaining us all too Put the two together and you’ve got a recipe for some fun evenings with the concert band PLUS Stories in the Night Sky. And it’s all free!
The events run on selected Wednesdays in summer 2014, and the remaining one is August 6.
The Albuquerque Balloon Museum hosts Stories in the Night Sky at 6 pm, followed by an Albuquerque Concert Band concert. Gates open at 5:30 pm.
Admission is free, and the August 6 Stories in the Sky segment features musicians, storytellers, and artists who will demonstrate the challenging art of improvisation.
The Stories in the Night Sky segment will run from 6 – 7 pm. The Albuquerque Concert Band concerts will run from 7 – 8 pm.
Come and enjoy the talents of Balloon Museum Jazz Music Ensemble with band leader, Brian Bennett & storyteller, Laurie Magovern.
You’re also welcome to take a picnic to enjoy on the lawn. (Welcome? You couldn’t stop me!) If you don’t want to prepare a picnic, food providers will be on site to serve up something yummy. Of course, you can also go just for the concert or just for the stories. It’s all free so what the heck?
The band usually plays a variety of music from big band classics to Scottish dances and rousing symphonic marches, and no doubt people will be having a dance, so don’t be shy to strut your stuff.
Anderson-Abruzzo Albuquerque International Balloon Museum is located at 9201 Balloon Museum NE.
