Musician extraordinaire Martin Lund will be opening the Emmanuel Parish “Brown Bag” concert series at noon on Wednesday, July 3.
The concert is held at the Emmanuel Episcopal Church in Eastsound. Entrance is by donation. This popular summer concert series features island musicians who give their time and talent to fund the Virgil Cleveland Memorial Scholarship. This scholarship provides the opportunity for a promising music student from Orcas to attend the Seattle Youth Symphony Marrowstone Music Camp in Bellingham.
Lund is a versatile composer, arranger and musician who plays several instruments. He recently retired as band director of Orcas High School but still performs at concerts benefitting local charities.
Bring a brown bag lunch and your friends for 30 minutes of music. Plan to arrive early, seating is limited and the doors will be closed promptly at noon. On Wednesday, July 10 Orcatrazz Swing Band will perform. This band plays music mostly from the swing band era and on occasion will even do a little rock and roll.
There is no charge for the concerts but donations are appreciated to help fund the scholarship.
