One of the best things about summer is relaxing outside and enjoying live music. Our annual Summer Concert Series is here to help. Join us on Sunday, June 25 at 7pm at the Hilliard Civic and Cultural Arts Center for this week’s free concert with returning guests, Blue Spectrum.
Founded by virtuoso guitarist, Zayne Harshaw at the age of 17, the band offers a diverse repertoire of sounds: spectrum of blues, rock, R&B, soul, pop and jazz. Their story is unique. Zayne was diagnosed with autism at the age of four. When he was 14-years old, this self-taught guitarist would walk up to total strangers and ask them to be a member of his (at the time) non-existent band. The dream became a reality in 2013 and has evolved through a few name changes and additions of personnel. But even with the changes, the message remained the same. The band shares a deep love of creating and performing music and living the impassioned motto of Blue Spectrum: “Life is not to be viewed through the single lens of a diagnosis but to be lived through the Spectrum of potential, promise and purpose”.
These concerts are made possible in part due to the generosity of our sponsors: Coffee Connections of Hilliard, the Rotary Club of Hilliard, Raising Cane’s, Blue Oak Patio and Landscaping and Westwood Collective.
Don’t forget that the Hilliard DORA is in effect, so feel free to bring food and adult beverages from participating Hilliard taverns and restaurants.
In the event of inclement weather, the concerts will be held inside Hilliard Civic and Cultural Arts Center so please come down to Old Hilliard rain or shine.
