MOUNT VERNON - The second concert of the Summer Music Garden Concert Series in the Children’s Garden at the Knox County Career Center will be Sunday, July 12 from 4-6 pm and will feature The Linda Dachtyl Quartet. Linda will delight everyone with her jazz vocals and “smokin’ hot” fingers on the Hammond B3 organ. The band includes Cary Dachtyl on drums, Mark Donavan on tenor sax, and Don Hales on guitar.
SPI will be supporting the “dachtyl” theme by making fun and colorful dinosaur eggs. Chemistry is involved in making these fizzy bath bombs that contain a plastic dinosaur inside.
Generously sponsored by the Ariel Foundation, the Community Foundation of Mount Vernon and Knox County, and Knox Community Hospital, these concerts are free to all! The concept of the concerts is to encourage everyone to be outside, experience the wonders of nature, socialize with
friends and meet new people - all while listening to live music. In addition, the Science Play-Space Initiative, better known as SPI Spot, provides a fun and educational science activity for children and their families.
All ages attended these concerts the past two years and found them most enjoyable. Although this series is located in the Children’s Garden, the events are not just for children. The music and science fun appeals to all ages.
Concerts are free and are from 4-6 pm. Be sure to bring a chair or blanket and a picnic snack! The Children’s Garden is located behind the Knox County Career Center at 306 Martinsburg Rd., Mount Vernon, Ohio.
The third and final concert will be August 9, with Elixir. For more information, call Sarah Goslee Reed at 740-392-4955. Sign up to receive more
