July 7 - Concerts on the Lawn Series

7 p.m.
JMU Sculpture Garden located between the Music Building and Duke Hall (Rain location: Memorial Hall Auditorium)

A newcomer to the 2013 series, the Shenandoah Valley Pipe Band brings traditional Scottish and Irish pipe music to the Shenandoah Valley. With six pipers and six drummers, the band has played in a variety of festivals and parades, and won the best marching unit in the Staunton July 4th parade. The band was founded in early 2009 by pipe major Kathy Hawkins, several of her piping students and a small group of drummers who had never before played the highland drums.

Audience members are encouraged to bring picnic dinners and lawn chairs to the concerts. Parking is available between Duke Hall and Miller Hall, between the Forbes Center and Anthony-Seeger, and in the Warsaw Parking Deck. Sponsored by the College of Visual and Performing Arts. Free.
