Tonight, from seven to nine, there will be music in the woods--Symphony Woods. The Columbia Orchestra will be presenting a free Pops concert at the Chrysalis . This event is a part of the Columbia 50th Birthday celebration. If you've been hearing a lot about the Chrysalis, but haven't seen it yet--well, now's the time. Bring your blankets and camp chairs and experience live music in the park. Here is some helpful info on parking.
There's a great article in The Business Monthly on Inner Arbor Trust CEO Nina Basu. Take a look here. There's a wealth of information about what's up next for the Chrysalis and how the plan for the entire park is moving forward.
There's another event going on downtown tonight, perhaps less publicized. At 5:30 pm, Columbia Association is marking the 50th Birthday of the People Tree, while also celebrating the return of the Lakefront bells. Have you seen/heard them yet? I took a walk around the lake yesterday and finally got to hear them ring.
It's possible that you can make it to both events with a quick dinner in between. At least, that's what I'm hoping to do.
See you there?
