MARIPOSA –– Music on the Green continues into the 2017 season of great music. Friday, June 30, features Green Machine, and though the Art Park stage goes dark on Saturday, July 1, a light shines on at the Mariposa County Amphitheatre, featuring Mariposa Symphony Orchestra’s annual Independence Day Spectacular! concert.
Green Machine has become a staple of Mariposa Evenings, bringing authentic and original reggae music and attitude to the Art Park stage for 14-years. Recognized throughout California as the real deal, they are veterans of festivals and concert stages from the central valley, to the foothills, and to the coast, providing a feast for the eyes with their light show, and for the ears with their trance-like reggae jam sound.
This year the group will be showcasing new material from their most recent recorded release, as well as the popular genre originals that their fervent fans have come to know and love.
The Mariposa Symphony Orchestra’s annual Independence Day Spectacular! concert featuring Aaron Copland’s Appalachian Spring and classic Americana marches in celebration of the USA’s birthday, begins at 7 p.m. on Saturday, July 1, at the Mariposa County Amphitheatre.
Tickets can be purchased online at www.mariposaartscouncil.org or by calling the Mariposa County Arts Council’s office at (209) 966-3155.
Music on the Green returns to its regular schedule next week, with concerts every Friday and Saturday evening through Aug. 26. A full concert list can be found at www.mariposaartscouncil.org
