MUSEP Returns July 19; Concerts May Be Streaming or Live
The Music for a Sunday Evening in the Park (MUSEP) Concert Series will return for its 41st season July 19. Creative Greensboro, the City’s office of arts and culture, is committed to producing the series – either in person at locations around the city, or livestreamed on Creative Greensboro’s Facebook page – depending on the best practices for safe gatherings. The first two events, July 19 and 26, will be livestreamed. A final decision on in-person or streaming will be posted at least two weeks prior to the remaining concert dates. Visit the Creative Greensboro website for the most current information about concert locations and the artist line-up.
“Events like MUSEP are needed now more than ever – as our community looks for ways to connect, heal, celebrate, and imagine together. While much remains uncertain about the summer and how we will deliver these concerts, we are pleased to affirm our commitment to the series and to the members of our creative community who help bring it to life,” said Greensboro’s Chief Creative Economy Officer Ryan Deal. “We will be following state and local health guidelines closely to determine whether the concerts will be held in person or streamed live via social media. We also acknowledge that social distancing and assembly restrictions may require adjustments to the artist lineup – as some of these groups are quite large and require the ability to gather for rehearsals as well as their time together in performance.”
This year MUSEP welcomes back familiar faces like the Gate City Divas and has added new performers like SunQueen Kelcey and The Soular Flares to the line-up.
