Music at the Dark Sky

Music at the Dark Sky Park

Friday, August 12Fri, Aug 12 at 8:30 PM
Dr. T.K. Lawless Park, Vandalia, MI

August 12 update: Due to the cloud cover that is expected to move in, the park will not be staying open as late as normal for stargazing. Our concert will still take place around 8:30, and the park will close immediately following the performance (around 9:45 or so).

Come for the music, stay for the stars! The Connecting Chords Music Festival will be bringing live music to the Dr. T.K. Lawless County Park before an evening of stargazing on Friday, August 12.

Performing will be the Samuel Nalangira Trio (folk/world musician Samuel Nalangira, percussionist Carolyn Koebel and bassist Joel Pixley-Fink).

Park admission is $2/car for Cass County residents, $3/car for non-county residents (please bring cash). Donations to the Michigan Festival of Sacred Music will be accepted.

Located in Vandalia, MI (about 50 minutes south of Kalamazoo), Lawless Park is one of only two sites in Michigan to be officially designated an International Dark Sky Park. The music program will start at 8:30 PM, and the park will remain open until midnight for stargazing.

In case of rain, the make-up date will be Friday, August 26.

All in-person Festival events will follow state, local and venue COVID requirements. Please check our website for the latest updates!
