Music in the Garden

The Holt Community Arts Council's largest project is the annual 'Music in the Garden' (MIG) concert series. The concerts are free and family friendly. Held in the amphitheater in the beautiful Veterans Memorial Gardens, right behind the Delhi Township Hall, 2074 Aurelius Road in Holt, MIG has become one of Holt's most anticipated summer traditions.

2013 'Music in the Garden'

This summer enjoy Music in the Garden, the sixth season of free outdoor concerts presented by the Holt Community Arts Council. Local and nationally renowned musicians will be featured where you can hear Big Band, Bluegrass, Funky Pop, Roots and more!

The concerts will be held every Thursday at 7 p.m. from July 11 through August 1 at Veterans' Memorial Gardens (behind the Delhi Township Community Services Center, 2074 Aurelius Road, Holt). Bring the kids! And while you're there, shop the Holt Farmers' Market.

To create one's own world in any of the arts takes courage. - Georgia O’Keefe                                                                 Art is not made for anybody and is, at the same time, for everybody. - Piet Mondrian                                                                 What art offers is space — a certain breathing room for the spirit. - John Updike                                                                 Without art, the crudeness of reality would make the world unbearable.  - George Bernard Shaw
