Tune in for Musical Smoothie art concert

June 16, 2012 by  

The City of Maryland Heights’ summer concert series might have been set into motion last weekend but there are more melodies to come.

Autumn’s Child will play for the concert series on July 20 at 7:00 pm at Creve Coeur Park, 2143 Creve Coeur Mill Rd. The concert is free of charge, like all the shows in this series.

The band was created by Mark Holland in 1995 to display the adaptability of the American Indian flute. The band comprises of musicians playing the cello, bass, guitar, and percussion.

The wind instrument has appealed to Holland since his college days at the University of Missouri – St. Louis, where he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in music.

Autumn’s Child last played in Maryland Heights at the yearly Celebrate the World Festival. The band generally performs many original songs and some cover songs from legends such as Van Morrison and the Rolling Stones.

Holland expressed that he composes music for every age group and background, including classical, jazz, folk, and world music, describing his music as being a sort of “musical smoothie.”

Autumn’s Child is set to issue its most recent CD, Instruments of Peace, today. Poster printing and banner printing for the summer concert series was contracted to printing companies in Maryland Heights.

The concert series is a yearly event and is accommodated by way of the Cultural Arts Commission from June until early September.

Concert goers are urged to bring chairs, blankets and snacks and to check the website for the schedule of events, alternative concert sites, and in the event of severe weather circumstances.
