On Sunday, July 7, the DT Folk Band (led by AM Music Director, Harrison Hollingsworth) played for an hour in Union Square Park after the morning service. It was a perfect sunny, hot, and humid morning for folk music. The folk band has played four or five times since Downtown services began last fall.
The style of music is one that many people enjoy and appreciate, so back in the spring the idea was born: “why not take the band to the park and share their music with others?” And several weeks later, we had the opportunity for our community to come together and invite friends from our neighborhood. We had 40-50 people join us, and many more who stopped by to listen. It was a joy to share the gift of music with our neighbors. We look forward to doing this again and discovering other ways we can meet and love our neighbors downtown.
