Listen Up for Noon Tunes

By Renato Ghio

 

We are lucky enough to eat lunch out quite a bit in our downtown. However, even on days when we bring lunch from home, we still like to get out and stretch our legs. We’ll grab a blanket and hang out on the CityCenter Green to eat or just go out for a short walk after lunch. Getting outside the office walls can do wonders for your mindset. Many times, we’ll come back with a creative idea for a project we been wrestling to finish.

Now, every Thursday, we’ll have a new place to enjoy lunch outside with live music! Thanks to a grant from the Regional Initiative Arts Program of the Connecticut Office of the Arts, CityCenter Danbury has launched Noon Tunes. It will be a series of eight concerts presented every Thursday through September 1, from 12noon to 1:30pm on Library Plaza, in front of the Danbury Public Library.

Whether you grab lunch from one of the downtown spots or brown bag it from home, Noon Tunes is a great excuse to get outside of your office at least one afternoon a week. Here’s the line-up of musical talent:

July 21 – Marc Huberman; original, instrumental, acoustic guitar

July 28 – El Conguero; entertainment, drumming

August 4 – Jeff Giglio; acoustic duo covers classic rock songs

August 11 – Doug Wahlberg and Jeff Claypool; a modern approach to a retro sound

August 18 – Marc Huberman

August 25 – Pete Herger; authentic American rock ‘n roll

September 1 – Griffin Anthony; blues-inspired words, and song

The Connecticut Office of the Arts (COA) developed the Regional Initiative arts grant in partnership with its nine Regional Service Organizations to support small projects that provide access to the creative process and/or creative experience, especially those projects that experiment with new ways to apply the arts within the community. CityCenter Danbury’s Regional Service Organization is the Cultural Alliance of Western Connecticut, a strategic partner.
