Artown's Closing Night: Playing for Change

Wingfield Park

Sunday, July 31, 7:30pm

Artown's Closing Night has long been the exclamation point on an entire month of arts and culture. Join Artown on July 31 at 7:30pm in Wingfield Park to celebrate with Playing for Change. Sharing peace through music, Playing For Change is a global music collective bringing musicians from around the world together for an inspirational live performance based on the PBS show. For four years, Playing For Change traveled the world with a mobile recording studio in search of musical inspiration and sharing their recordings to unite people through music. Throughout the journey they created a family of more than 100 musicians from all walks of life that make up the Playing For Change Band. Merging genres from blues and chamber music to African choir and rock, musicians perform familiar songs in a new, collaborative style.
