Cultural Center packs summer calendar

Sunday Times Newspapers

TRENTON — Nothing says summer like an outdoor concert, and the Trenton Cultural Center’s calendar offers a variety of music for all tastes and ages, and an evening movie for the family.

Trenton Parks and Recreation Director Joann Perna said the schedule brings an eclectic lineup of local performing artists to the center, with two series of events to delight young and old. The center, located at the corner of West and Edsel roads, includes a barn, two-storey farmhouse, a display by the Trenton Model Train Club and gardens that provide a unique setting for family and evening concerts.

For families, the “Lemonade and Shade” concert series sponsored by the Tom Shumate Endowment Fund presents an afternoon of music and ice-cold lemonade. Thursday’s show features Zippity 2 Dad; and Aug. 16 brings Gemini to the park. Shows are free and begin at 3:30 p.m.

Thursday evening at 7 p.m. the Summer Concert Series continues with 2012 Downriver Idol contest winner Katie Kurilko and Friends, sponsored by the Southern Great Lakes Symphony Orchestra.

Next week, the center will host an outdoor Movie in the Park, beginning at dusk on July 25. This month’s movie — sponsored by the Trenton Parks and Recreation Department and Village Animal Healthcase — will be “Puss in Boots.”

Perna said that visitors should bring a lawn chair or blanket to concerts or the movie, for which children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
