“MUSIC ON THE TERRACE”
A sentimental journey to the 1940's
You supply your lunch, and we’ll supply the music. Join us at C. Burr Artz Public Library for the seventh annual Music on the Terrace, held every Friday in September from 11:30 am to 1:30 pm.
This popular brown-bag lunch series is sponsored by The C. Burr Artz Trust, The Frederick News-Post, WFMD AM 930, Rita’s Italian Ice and Frederick County Public Libraries. Rita’s Italian Ice will be back to give away free dessert, in addition to other available sweet treats.
Admission is FREE, and no tickets or reservations are required. Just bring your lunch and maybe a friend or two to soak up the September sunshine and great tunes on the terrace.
Note: Music on the Terrace is a rain-or-shine event. In the event of rain, concert will be moved indoors to the Community Room.
Fridays in September 11:30 AM - 1:30PM
C.Burr Artz Public Library, Downtown Frederick City, Frederick Maryland
