The festival is set to through a series of acoustic concerts for local artists around the city. Kicking off with the first performance on Friday, September 11th outside of Burlington City Hall from noon until 1:00 p.m., the festival will continue on with shows at Spencer Smith Park, Burlington GO station, and Aldershot GO station.
“It is important for us to help local artists during this difficult time,” Sound of Music executive director Myles D. Rusak explains. “They’ve been out of work facing ongoing uncertainty and miss connecting with audiences. More establishments in town are finding safe ways to bring back live music and we’ll be doing our part to showcase them as well. It’s time the music industry recovers and we bring the Sound of Music back to the streets!”
