Lineup for Summer Concerts in the Park announced

Marley’s Ghost will present a pre-Labor Day concert in the park.

Bluegrass, cajun, swing, Celtic and rock and roll will be featured during the American Music Festival’s free Sunday “Summer Concerts in the Park” series at Brookings’ Azalea Park.

The 10-concert season, presented by Rogue Credit Union, starts May 31 with the high-energy bluegrass of Eight Dollar Mountain, and ends Sept. 22 with the Celtic-based Wake the Dead.

“This is going to one of our best seasons ever thanks to our sponsors and the donations we received from audience members last year,” said Les Cohen, chairman of the American Music Festival board.


Opening weekend for Mary Poppins

The cast of the musical “Mary Poppins” performed songs from the production at Chetco Community Public Library during the Second Saturday Art Walk, giving guests a sneak preview of the show.

Brookings Harbor Community Theater presents the classic musical “Mary Poppins,” which opens Friday, May 15, in the Harbor Performing Arts Center.

The show includes a heartwarming score, a heaping spoonful of imagination, and a magical nanny who is “practically perfect in every way,” according to a news release.


Mural with a Message


With a $1,000 grant, Azalea Middle School language arts teacher Ann Volz and Brookings Harbor High School art teacher Sheryl Tuttle set out to create a mural for the school that `will give viewers something to enjoy for generations to come — full of bright colors and a thought-provoking message.

The project began when Volz received a $1,000 grant from the Curry County Cultural Coalition to complete an art project with her middle schoolers. The organization provides grant money to schools and groups that advocate for education in arts, humanities, and the cultural heritage of Curry County. Azalea no longer has an art teacher, so Volz asked Tuttle to collaborate with her students to create a work of art.

“We decided to have just the eighth graders work on this project,” Volz said. “It’ll be their legacy.”
