AUGUST 11-18 Summer Outdoor Concert with Ron Franklin  

Whether it’s the lyrics, or tune, or combination of both, the restorative benefits of music are astonishing. Plato had it right when he said, “Music and rhythm find their way into the secret places of the soul.” Music can improve the quality of your life in numerous ways. It reduces stress and anxiety, lifts your mood, boosts your health, helps you sleep better, takes away your pain, and even makes you smarter. Join us for a special Summer Concert featuring the multi-talented Ron Franklin.
