Music meets nature at an Akron farm


AKRON — Music at the Farmstead in Akron will hold its sixth annual summer concert series “Where Music Meets Nature.”


The series consists of three concerts presented in a restored 19th-century barn in Cuyahoga Valley National Park.

— June 1, The Singers Companye: Northeast Ohio’s troupe of professional singers is back. Their concert is “An American Journey” — music inspired by the American experience, including American Indian culture.

— July 13, Poco Tango: This is a combination of flute, guitar, bass and percussion for a visit to the music of South America. With arrangements based on Argentine tangos, Brazilian choros, Cuban salsas and Venezuelan joropos, this group is working to move the equator closer to home.

— Aug. 3, The Early Interval: Performing on reproductions of period instruments, this group is one of the Midwest’s leading early music ensembles. Authentically recreating instrumental and vocal music originally performed during the middle ages and renaissance, they frequently use as many as 50 instruments for a single concert.


The Conrad Botzum Farmstead in located at 3486 Riverview Road between Bath and Ira.

All concerts take place at 6:30 p.m. on Sundays. Patrons are invited to bring picnic dinners to enjoy on the grounds from 5-6:30 p.m.

Individual concert tickets are $18; season tickets are $45. To order tickets, call 330-666-9686. Parking is free on the grounds.
