RED TABLE PLAZA LUNCHTIME CONCERT SERIES

Performers are compensated $75 for each performance. This year’s series is also a fundraiser for The Music Village, a non-profit music school and arts alliance located in downtown South Bend. Performers have the option of donating their $75 to The Music Village, and the Red Table Plaza marketing materials will indicate which performances are benefiting The Music Village. 

The streets of downtown will be resonant with the music of local musicians for 18 weeks during the Red Table Plaza Lunchtime Concert Series. Monday through Thursday, May 31 through August 30, soloists, duets and small groups will perform free acoustical concerts (weather permitting) from 11:45 a.m. until 1:15 p.m. Downtown workers and visitors are invited to take a seat in Studebaker Plaza, at the southwest corner of Jefferson and Michigan Street. Grab lunch from a nearby restaurant or bring your own, then enjoy it while taking in the tunes! 

2018 marks the seventh year of partnership between the Red Table Plaza Lunchtime Concert Series and the Morris Performing Arts Center’s Fridays by the Fountains. On these Fridays, Red Table Plaza’s tables and chairs will relocate to Jon Hunt Plaza at Colfax and Michigan for one big downtown concert!

The café tables and chairs that give this concert series its name are provided by DTSB.
