Sunday Twilight Concerts begin June 2


Special to The Sun

OKLA. CITY — This summer the 33rd Annual Sunday Twilight Concert Series, presented by Devon, is inviting music lovers of all ages to free, family friendly concerts at the Myriad Gardens. The first concert of the summer kicks off at 7:30 p.m. June 2 with Squirrel & Friends.

Aaron Squirrel, lead guitarist and namesake of the group, describes their sound as a “dynamic, experimental, funky, rock band that engages audiences with intricate musicianship, high energy, and ethereal soundscapes.” Since 2005, the Oklahoma band has opened for Grammy Award winners such as Eric Johnson, Derek Trucks and Joe Bonamassa.

The concerts take place from 7:30-9 p.m. at the Band Shell on the Great Lawn at the Myriad Botanical Gardens. Attendees are encouraged to bring blankets, chairs and picnics; however, pets and glass containers are prohibited.

The 33rd annual Sunday Twilight Concert Series is presented by Devon Energy with additional support from Oklahoma Arts Council, Allied Arts, National Endowment for the Arts, and Magic 104.1-KMGL. For more information, visit www.ArtsCouncilOKC.com.
