Genoa hosts a day of music

Provided to the Tribune

The program for this year’s “Pops-In-The-Park” is extraordinary for the amount and quality of entertainment that is planned. The annual event will take place today at the Mormon State Park in Genoa.

Thom Merry will be the invocation speaker. The Gairin Celtic Singers will perform at 1p.m., followed by the 35 Saline Fiddlers from Michigan. The main program, scheduled at 4:30 p.m., will feature the Reno Philharmonic Orchestra with Maestro Barry Jekowsky conducting. Rita Geil, an award-winning lyric poet, will perform with the orchestra. Geil will create a short poem and read it during the playing of “God Bless America.”

In addition, this magical afternoon will include a silent auction, Doc-O & Squeeky Clowns, a musical instrument “petting zoo” for children and young strolling violinists. The best aspect of this “Magiko” day is that it is free. There is no cost to attend and enjoy these professional musicians and entertainers.

More than 3,000 people are expected to enjoy this outstanding program. The park has been renovated and enlarged so there will be room to spread blankets and chairs.
