DEFIANCE — The Summer music season provided by the Defiance Community Cultural Council continues at 7:30 p.m. July 11 at Triangle Park with a performance by The Diana Chittester Band.
Blending the storytelling roots of folk music with the animation of rock, Chittester’s show is brought to life by her signature percussive, multi-part acoustic guitar playing blended with intelligent and articulate lyrics. The personal stories she shares on stage resonate with audiences as she invites them along on their journey. Her stage show includes her original music and select covers by artists who have influenced her, such as Lindsey Buckingham and Heart.
Prior to the concert, a creative songwriting workshop will be held at 2 p.m. at Just Be Original, 318 Clinton St. This workshop, presented by Chittester, is designed to stimulate creativity by understanding the basic principles of musical patterns and lyrical expression. Students will walk away with a new skill or practice they can implement immediately.
The workshop is free and open to the public. All ages are welcome. Registration is required for the songwriting workshop, as seating is limited. Visit www.justbeoriginal.com to register. The event is sponsored by Defiance Community Cultural Council and hosted by Just Be Original.
The Music in your Parks series is free and open to the public. The city of Defiance and Defiance Community Cultural Council are sponsors of the Music in Your Parks Series. Check the DCCC Facebook or www.defiancearts.org. on July 11 to confirm show location. For more information call 419-784-3401.
