July 19, 2012

The String Orchestra of Brooklyn is performing in Fort Greene Park on Saturday. Ahhh...music in the park.

Charles has quite a lineup of music events for you this weekend. Here is what is on his list this weekend: “We are curious about the Sandbox Music shows and might make a stop there. We are definitely headed to The String Orchestra of Brooklyn on Saturday and, of course, Mil’s Trills at Littlefield on Sunday.” Don’t forget El Museo del Barrio’s annual block party which is a total blast of dance, music and crafts.

Have a happy weekend!
