Noontime brown-bag concert series to begin Sept. 10 at Cowley


Folk music, improvisation, and dance highlight the fall season of Arts a la Carte at Cowley County Community College.

Sponsored by Heartland Arts at Cowley, the 12:20-12:50 p.m. concerts will be held outdoors at the Calder Bonfy Amphitheatre located between the Brown Center and Galle-Johnson Hall just off Third Street on the main campus in Arkansas City. Concerts are free and open to the public.

Rain, high wind or inclement weather location will be in The Jungle inside the Nelson Student Center.

The concert series kicks off Sept. 10 with Hans and Jason Judd playing acoustic folk music. Still on the Hill will entertain Sept. 17, playing folkgrass originals. Southwestern College’s improvisational group, 9 Lives Improv, will perform Sept. 24. And individual members of Cowley’s Tigerette Danceline will wrap up the fall season on Oct. 1.

Concertgoers are encouraged to bring a sack lunch, a lawn chair or blanket, and enjoy local entertainment.

“The Arts a la Carte series provides some Friday afternoon entertainment, plus it gives exposure to a wide range of performing artists,” said Connie Bonfy, Cowley’s director of institutional grants and arts programming. “We’re really pleased with this year’s lineup and hope to see nice crowds each Friday.”

The series is sponsored in part by the Kansas Arts Commission, a state agency, and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.
