    [Avon Bicentennial celebrated with free concert by the Avon School of Music]

    By Michael Sangiacomo

    The Plain Dealer Sun News

    August 25, 2014

    AVON, Ohio -- There was music in the park Saturday [8-23-14] as students and staff of the Avon School of Music put on a free concert at the city gazebo to honor the ... Avon Bicentennial.

    Almost 100 people sat in lawn chairs and on the grass around the gazebo at Detroit Road and Colorado Street to enjoy musical selections from musicians as young as five. Granted, many of the people in the audience were family members cheering on the students but there were also many who just came for the music, including Avon City Councilwoman Mary Berges and town historian, Jack Smith.

    "I just came here to listen and enjoy the music and this lovely day in the park," Berges said.

    The show lasted for about two hours, ending with a inspired saxophone solo by teacher Daniel Kasper. Most of the performances were done on a huge grand piano that looked oddly fitting in the snow-white city gazebo.

    A second concert is scheduled for 6 to 8 p.m. Sept. 6 at the gazebo, a week shy of the Sept. 14 200th anniversary of the founding of Avon. The concert will also feature some of the staff from the Avon School of Music's sister studio in Strongsville.

    David Thrall, of the the school's directors, was the master of ceremony of Saturday's event.
