June 28, 2021 (Moscow, Idaho) —
The July 1 Entertainment in the Park event will move to the Hamilton Indoor Recreation Center due to the excessive heat warning for the Palouse region.
This free family-friendly event will open with a special storytime for local youth presented by the Moscow Public Library.
The evening’s first act will feature the Sesitshaya Marimba Ensemble. This Moscow-based group plays traditional and contemporary Sub-Saharan African songs and shares the lively rhythmic sounds of the Kwanongoma marimbas of Zimbabwe blended with Pacific Northwest marimbas.
Izzy Burns, an 18-year-old Indie/Folk singer-songwriter from Moscow, will close the event. Burns is a self-proclaimed lover of folk music, jamming and hats who sings originals and reinvented classics.
The Hamilton Indoor Recreation Center is located at 1724 E. F St. For more event details visit the City of Moscow Facebook page, or visit https://www.ci.moscow.id.us/196/Entertainment-in-the-Park
Entertainment in the Park is sponsored by the City of Moscow, the Moscow Arts Commission, the Friends of Moscow Public Library, the Latah County Library District and Avista.
