The Monroe Symphony Orchestra (MSO) presents its first ever Feet ‘n the Street Fundraiser Saturday September 21st from 3:30 – 6:30 pm in West Monroe’s brand new Alley Park located adjacent to Antique Alley West Monroe! MSO intends that people in Northeast Louisiana, Southeast Arkansas and Western Mississippi see this event as an invitation for those who love music of all kinds to get together and enjoy!
The event features fantastic food trucks, wine, beer, sodas, water and great music. Families are invited to bring their youngsters and enjoy the special kid-friendly treats. And everyone will want to purchase tickets for the raffle! Ticket and raffle proceeds benefit MSO and its community outreach and youth programs.
This event stars two of Northeast Louisiana’s favorite musical groups. The Mike McKenzie Band is a 2-time NELA Music Award and 5-time Best of the Delta Award winner. A consistent crowd favorite, Mike grew up in a musical family and has opened for a variety of well-known artists including Tim McGraw at Swampstock. Lisa Spann and Company is another Northeast Louisiana favorite. Known for her incredible range and musical flexibility, Lisa and her extraordinarily talented group are regularly featured at Landry Vineyards, the Dixie Theater and a wide variety of other private and public events in the area. Wine and beer will be served by several of the symphony’s most interesting musicians. If this sounds like a different kind of musical event for a symphony, that’s because it is.Tickets are $30 a person and go on sale August 1st at mymso.org/feetnthestreet/. Food is reasonably priced; children 15 and under are admitted for free. West Monroe City officials encourage folks to Uber and Lyft to the event.
