Erie Day School Art & Music Festival by Cory Vaillancourt

No, I don’t want to buy any of your kid’s cookies that they’re selling for school. I don’t want one of their stupid coupon books, calendars, scented soaps, or sports memorabilia, either. But as far as school fundraisers go, this is something to which I will gladly contribute: Erie Day School’s Art & Music Festival. 

“Erie Day School has so many links to the arts that we figured it would be a great spot to do this,” said Steve Trohoske, jazz bassist and organizer of the two-day event that will benefit the 8th grade class at Erie Day. “Also, we don’t have much of a ‘festival of the arts’ going on right now, so this might be a perfect time to start something, so we came up with the idea and Erie Day just embraced it.”

Poets, dancers, and, of course, musicians will perform both Saturday and Sunday, and works by a host of local artists – including Lena Logvina and Sarah Millspaw, among others – will be available for purchase; so if you’re looking to start your holiday shopping (ugh!) early, listen to some cool tunes by the likes of East Ave, Eric Brewer & Friends, PotWhole, Sean Patrick & The New Grass Revolution, World Of Music’s School of Rock, Steve Trohoske’s Bass/Drum/Bass, and Zack Orr all while helping out a good cause, well, I’ll see you there – tickets are just $5 for both days, and children under 12 are free. 

10 a.m. to 6 p.m. // Friday & Saturday Nov. 22 & 23 // 1372 W. Sixth St. // 392.2933 or 572.8876
