The Patriotic Concert is being sponsored by TrueNorth and the City of Avon Lake, serving as the closing activity of TrueNorth’s Arts Fest’ which begins at 12:00 noon that day.

The Patriotic Concert musical selections bring together favorite songs, hymns, and anthems that reach into the soul and stir the hearts of people. The lyrics are the words that stay with us, the music that leaves us humming, the thoughts that lift us, and the inspiration that we seek, truly celebrating the spirit of America in a truly remarkable way! The concert will include the Presentation of Colors, Folding of the Flag and the retiring of the Colors. There will be a time of recognizing our veterans, active Military and their families; there will be a time of remembrance. Songs such as America the Beautiful, When the Saints Go Marching In, and Battle Hymn of the Republic will be featured, as well as Sousa’s Stars and Stripes Forever. TrueNorth has performed its Patriotic Concert for 7 seasons. In 2001, over $3,000.00 fwas raised for the New York Police Officers and Fire Fighters. In 2002, TrueNorth led the city of Cleveland in a Concert of Prayer, on the 1-year remembrance of 9-11, sponsored by the Cleveland Federal Executive Board.
TrueNorth Cultural Arts is a multi-disciplinary arts organization committed to building and strengthening individuals and the community through the performing arts, the visual arts, and the humanities. TrueNorth’s vision is two-fold: To educate, equip, and empower individuals so they can embrace and succeed in the creative arts, and to envision and encourage a community where creative arts and art appreciation flourish.

City of Avon Lake to Sponsor

TrueNorth Cultural Arts Fest on June 28
Family Festival Offers Celebration of Music, Theater, Visual Arts and DanceAmid Lakefront Setting of Miller Road Park
Nature and the arts will come together in a celebration for all ages on Saturday, June 28, at Miller Road Park in Avon Lake, from 12 noon to 7:30 p.m. Sponsored by the City of Avon Lake, the TrueNorth Cultural Arts Fest will feature more than 30 artists demonstrating their crafts and selling their hand-crafted creations, live performances by many local recording artists, tours of the Civil War Era Peter Miller House, and performance artists recreating vignettes of everyday life through a Civil War living history re-enactment . The day’s events will be capped off with the annual TrueNorth Chorale and Symphony patriotic concert performed against the backdrop of a Lake Erie sunset.

“The City of Avon Lake is honored to sponsor this wonderful family cultural event,” said Mayor Karl K.C. Zuber. “Avon Lake is blessed with an abundance of natural beauty, parks and green areas, and a thriving fine arts community. This event allows us to showcase our many natural and artistic resources with a day packed full of entertainment for all ages. Best of all, admission is free, and Avon Lake is located less than a one-tank trip away from anywhere in Northeast Ohio.”

TrueNorth, the Lorain County-based non-profit organization hosting the event, is devoted to fostering involvement in and appreciation of the fine arts. According Rick Fortney, Executive Director, the organization seeks to empower individuals to succeed in the fine arts, and to encourage appreciation in communities like Avon Lake, where the creative arts flourish.

“We’ve brought together some of the best artistic talent in Lorain County and Northeast Ohio for ArtsFest,” he said. “Our visual arts area will include exhibits and demonstrations of ceramics, jewelry-making, watercolors, acrylics, fiber art and photography.

“Musical entertainment throughout the day ranges from our own TrueNorth Patriotic Symphony and Chorale to local musicians and vocalists performing pop/acoustic, Barbershop, jazz/fusion and several other styles. When you add the picturesque park setting, meandering walkways and spectacular views of Lake Erie, it should be a real fest for the senses.”

Kids’ Entertainment and Games, Food Specialties, Area Businesses Showcased

A special “Arts in Action” kids’ make-and-take craft area, food specialties from several of Avon Lake’s most popular restaurants and a children’s play area complete with everything from an inflatable “Moon Bounce” room to putt-putt to carnival games are also planned. Several Avon Lake-area business and non-profit sponsors will be on hand to provide information on their services.

More information on the TrueNorth Cultural Arts Fest and directions to Miller Road Park in Avon Lake are available on the TrueNorth Website: Parking for the event will be available at both the shopping plaza and the Reliant Energy parking lots located across the street.

    Thanks for the plug for Workshop’s current show.

    In the photo above, all the pics you can see on our lobby wall are W. W. II Vets, many of whom are Lorain County Natives. It is an awesome sight to see them and to read about them. After our show closes on July 13 we’d like to fid a new home for these wall displays… Any ideas?
    let me know!
