Drs. Steven Hoffman and Margaret Waterman are regular Tunes at Twilight attendees. ‘I really feel like I live in a great town when I go to Tunes,’ commented Dr. Hoffman. ‘I get to catch up with friends, sit under the trees and catch a cool breeze from the river on even the hottest of days, while listening to original acoustic music.’

‘There’s a peacefulness to Tunes that is hard to capture in words. It’s, perhaps, a friendlier time, a sweeter place than what we have every day,’ added Dr. Waterman. ‘Being outside with friends and a community of people of all ages, all while listening to great music – it doesn’t get much better than that!’

This is another event brought to the community by Old Town Cape. SoutheastHEALTH is the premier sponsor with additional sponsors including FOX23 KBSI, My 49 WDKA and Cape Air. Grant assistance is provided through the Missouri Arts Council.

In the event of inclement weather, a designated rain location will be announced on Old Town Cape’s website and social media no later than 4pm the day of the event. For more information about Tunes at Twilight, visit www.OldTownCape.org/Tunes at Twilight.aspx
