Music lovers, mark your calendars for Sept. 10. The inaugural Together Through Sound festival will bring local musicians and artists together at Riverview Park for a night of community and collaboration. Performances from more than 100 musicians will span a rainbow of genres, from Latin to Afrobeats and hip hop to classical. Plus, free tent space will be available for local artists to sell their work. The event will conclude with a collaborative concert featuring a full symphony orchestra.

“As a long-time musician, I’ve always felt that music and the arts have a unique ability to bring people together and create shared experiences,” Ashley Eidbo, festival director and local musician, said in a press release. She co-founded the festival with fellow musicians Katelyn Stessman and Billy Weathers in partnership with the B.Well Foundation to create opportunities for the community to share new experiences through the arts.

The festival is free and open to the public, thanks to a Polk County Community Betterment Grant. Go online to check out the full schedule, with lists of vendors and performers.
