Alderman Witkowski invites residents to play music outdoors, celebrate life
“In times past it was common to hear live music emanating from porches, yards and street corners”
Garden District Alderman Terry L. Witkowski invites residents to gather together with neighbors on Saturday, August 27, and play music on their porches in celebration of “Play Music on Your Porch Day.”
“In times past it was common to hear live music emanating from porches, yards and street corners,” Alderman Witkowski said. “Musicians surrounded themselves with friends and family to sing and play music together. This tradition is being lost as more people experience music individually with their headphones instead of as a participatory celebration of life.”
“Play Music on Your Porch Day” is an opportunity for musicians and their neighbors to revive the tradition of gathering, singing and playing music outside with friends and family, and is being organized by the Garden District Neighborhood Association Art Committee.
