HIGH SPRINGS MUSIC IN THE PARK & CONCERT SERIES INC

 

COVID 19 Update

Hello to all Music Lovers,   

I see no end to this pandemic in the near future. This complicates matters on a whole new level at least for our music program. 

Most of the attendees are of the age group that are at greater risk to COVID 19. The concert Series (June thru Sept) is held inside.                        The Alachua County guidelines limits are to 50% capacity. High Springs has even stricter rules. 

It is too hot in Florida for outside concerts during this time of year. 

The sponsors of our events have literally stopped all funding. 

The artists that were in line to have contracts signed for their upcoming performances, have disappeared from the scene and are not returning my requests. 

The cost of these events run approx. $400-$500 per event.  Donations are not enough to cover this cost. 

Live events are what we are all about. I have no interest in creating Zoom concerts or the like. 

The list goes on and on… 

  

This is one of the hardest decisions that I must make as president of the High Springs Music in the Park & Concert Series Inc. 

I have decided to cancel the remaining events for this year. 

June – Father’s Day Blues 

July – The Master’s 

Aug – The Songwriters 

Sept – Folk in the Springs 

  

Although, I do not know what the future holds. We will consider the options at that time. 

Sincerely, 

  

Michael Loveday

The work you do over in High Springs is seriously what allows musicians to find lives in music. I think the industry needs more people who truly love what they do, because it shows ”

Sunday afternoons is a quite time for High Springs. Most of downtown is closed but this is the perfect time to visit. You can park your car, stroll downtown, window shop, see the murals, visit the High Springs Museum, visit the High Springs Library, relax in James Paul Park and view some of the oldest buildings still standing in Florida like the Priest Theatre and St Bartholomew's Episcopal Church. All for free. You can also, dine at the Great Outdoors Restaurant or Headwaters (the newest restaurant in town), shop the few merchants that are open like The Mantle on Main Street, eat ice cream at The Creamery and catch a play at the High Springs Playhouse. All of this within a short walking distance and yes we are handicap accessible . So what are you waiting for? Make plans now to bring the family & friends. Let's create memories. Just another good reason to visit High Springs, FL. * in case of rain, the performance will take place inside the High Springs Community Center & Museum across the street from the park.   /directions
