Music at the Arboretum returns this summer to Wooster

Ohio Regional Music Arts and Cultural Outreach (ORMACO) and the Friends of the Secrest Arboretum announce the return of Music at the Arboretum this summer. The season kicks off May 27, with Northeast Ohio-based Neo Dixie, with an evening of high-energy Dixieland music.

On June 24, Canton-based guitarist/vocalist Pat Masalko and Bath-based violinist Jamieson Bowman bring to the stage an evening of toe-tapping, hand-clapping classic Irish tunes.

The Ohio Trombone Consortium showcases the rich tradition of the trombone choir on July 29, as the ensemble presents historical works written and arranged for trombone, while also presenting the breadth of modern works for the group.

Closing out the summer music festival is Hot Potatoes: Blues and Swing with a Big Easy Touch on August 19, featuring Kerry Kean (lead guitar, fiddle, vocals), Bobby Patetta (rhythm guitar, harmonica, vocals), Tim Akin (upright bass, vocals) and Bruce Pearce (drums, percussion).

These free concerts take place at the John Streeter Garden Amphitheater at the Secrest Arboretum, 2122 Williams Road, Wooster. In the event of rain, the concerts will be held at Fisher Auditorium, 1680 Madison Avenue, Wooster.
