This weekend the lawn around the courthouse in Warrensburg will be transformed into a concert stage. The first of four concerts in the Warrensburg Summer Concert Series kicks off on Friday at 7 P.M. Click here to hear KMZU’s Chelsea Pounds talk with Event Coordinator for Warrensburg Main Street Jill Purvis:
“Our first concert is Friday night from 7 P.M. until 9 P.M.,” Purvis stated. “We are asking people to bring lawn chairs and blankets and to just come out and listen to some great music. Our first band is Luehrman, Shaffer and Check. They’re a band that plays old time country, New Orleans jazz, swing, Broadway, Delta blues, Latin, and Americana Folk.”
There will be three additional concerts in the series. The next concert will be on Pine Street in Warrensburg on June 28th at 7 P.M. The third concert in the series will take place on July 26th with RPI performing at 8 P.M on Pine Street. The final concert will be on August 2nd in conjunction with the First Friday Art Walk at 7 P.M. returning to the courthouse lawn, with Emily Russell and Brandon Webb will headlining that concert.
“We are hoping to have concession stands especially for our two courthouse events,” Purvis said. “Of course on Pine Street some businesses will be bringing out stuff to sell on the street. We will have an extension of our open containers so we can sell alcohol on the street. We invite you to come to Warrensburg downtown and eat at any of our establishments before the concerts, or get a picnic basket to-go and bring it to the concerts either at the courthouse or on Pine Street.”
The concerts are free to the public. The series is being sponsored by the National Guard. Purvis added that the final concert in the series on August 2nd will have a more family-friendly atmosphere.
