I’ve got several items on my 101 in 1001 challenge list to provide an update on, but I’ll start with this one today: “Enjoy some outdoor/indoor music”.
My town organizes a “Concerts in the Park” series every summer for all to enjoy for free. A new band plays a different style of music every week and on a weekday evening, people get to sit on the lawn and listen to the band.
I’ve been wanting to take the kids to several of these concerts but somehow I’ve forgotten every single time this summer. That’s until a group of friends mentioned they’d be going to an upcoming blues concert, with two bands playing that night. So I put it on the calendar and last week I joined my friends and a couple thousand people for a fun concert.
I don’t think we stayed there longer than an hour because the kids were getting tired and their patience was wearing out, but we did enjoy the blues music during the time we were there.
Here’s a photo of the second band I managed to take when the kids asked to get closer to listen to the music.
Of course the boys then complained the music was too loud, so we made our way back to our blanket by going behind the stage. Somehow the music was still very loud over there, not just in front of the stage!
Enjoying outdoor music is a treat for me in the summer. I also got to enjoy live music on the 4th of July when I took my oldest to the town’s festivities. So technically, this is my second time listening to live music in a single month, not that bad. I can now cross this challenge off my list, although I hope to have more opportunities to listen to indoor or outdoor music before this challenge is over.
Do you get to enjoy outdoor music once in a while? Or do you prefer indoor concerts?
