Music and artistic expression have suffered during the current pandemic. Neighbors in the South Orange community have joined to create “Live on the Lawn” Neighbors for Art access and arts education, an outdoor neighborhood concert series planned May 28th, June 4th and June 11th, all beginning at 7 p.m. to kick-off Memorial Day weekend and to celebrate a safe and enjoyable summer. The concert series will be held on the lawn of the landmark Blanchard House, 100 Blanchard Road in South Orange, NJ.
The Wyricks live in a musical household in South Orange with their two daughters, who play violin and cello. The Wyricks know the need to invest early in children’s ability, not only to cultivate their musical interest and exposure, but also to reinforce ability and provide good quality training. Yvonne Patterson, co-founder of the Patterson Foundation states, “The concert’s goal is to lift the community’s spirit, provide hope and opportunity.”
