Trevor Harvey, one of the co-founders of the Longfellow Neighborhood Front Porch Music Festival, will share how the festival became an annual event during Front Porch Story from 7 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, June 7, in Meeting Room A at the Iowa City Public Library.
Now in its third year, the Front Porch Music Festival is a neighborhood celebration of music-making featuring musicians of all ages and experience. Their performances, which take place on porches throughout the neighborhood, showcase a wide range of musical styles and traditions, including jazz, classical, folk and rock.
Harvey’s presentation will discuss the value of music in building and sustaining communities. He’ll be joined by other festival organizers and performers, who will get the audience jazzed for the 2017 festival, which will be held from 2 to 5:30 p.m. on Saturday, June 10.
