BUILDING AND FIRING THE EMBERLIGHT DRAGON KILN

Poetry read outside on a balmy summer afternoon – what could be better? This event brings
together poets from the Emberlight National Poetry Contest to read their works, and celebrate
the awarding of Poet Laureate honors to the top contestant. Woven into the afternoon will be
music from mandolin player Fran Strong and guitar player Anthony Hanson-Lynn. Don’t
miss this delightful Performance Infusion finale!

STRING TIME IN THE PARK

The Garland City Consort returns to Emberlight this year, bringing music from the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries to life in the lovely outdoor setting of the Park. Enjoy an afternoon of baroque chamber music performed by this local musician-owned cooperative, and learn the fascinating history behind some of the very rare pieces of music they perform.
