Davenport Zither Ensemble Concert: Summer Hausmusik

August 20, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

The Davenport Zither Ensemble once again brings us the soothing sounds of the zither right to the German American Heritage Center for all to hear. The group will perform their concert on August 20th at 2 PM at the German American Heritage Center. You may recognize some tunes as both popular German and American songs will be heard. All are welcome to attend! Admission is free for members and $5 for visitors.

The Zither Ensemble at the German American Heritage Center began fifteen years ago as a Zither Lesson Project, and continues to practice on Saturday mornings from 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at the Heritage Center. Our practices are open to everyone. If you are interested in how the zither is played, how one begins to play the instrument, or just enjoy listening, you are cordially invited to the Saturday morning sessions. We also have a zither-to-loan program if you’d like to try it out.

 Linda Dowd, guitar
