Free Family Concert Series begins August 2
Thursday | August 2 | 6-7pm
Blooming Grounds Coffeehouse
50 E 3rd St | Winona
Join in the fun for a free family-friendly concert featuring the H3O Jazz Trio. This is the first in a series of three free concerts sponsored jointly by the Third Space–Main Street Program and the City of Winona. The other concerts will be: Flutistry on September 13 and Deutches Duo on October 4. These informal performances are designed for people of all ages who usually don’t attend formal concerts. The hour-long performance features audience participation giving children (and the young-at-heart) the chance to play percussion instruments along with the performers. All instruments are provided and no music reading experience is necessary – just your ears and hands!
The performances are made possible by the support of the Bush Foundation, Springboard for the Arts, Third Space and Main Street Programs and Blooming Grounds Coffeehouse. Contact concert coordinator Janet Heukeshoven at firstname.lastname@example.org for additional details.
About H3O Jazz Trio
The father and sons’ trio H3O began performing great jazz tunes together when bassist Max Heukeshoven was only 14 years old. Along with older brother Hans on drums and vibes and dad Eric on the piano the group was asked to play for a private pool party and haven’t stopped since!
