Tweaked Version of Music in Plymouth to Be Held In Person July 7
There’s excitement in Plymouth over Music in Plymouth. This year the event will be back in person, with one notable change.
“We didn’t think we were going to be able to be here having this conversation,” said Mele Willis with the Plymouth Civic League, the nonprofit that organizes and raises money for the event. “We couldn’t be more thrilled. This is as excited as I’ve been in a long time.”
The event will be held July 7, which follows Minnesota Governor Tim Walz lifting restrictions on outdoor gatherings beginning July 1. Last year, the in-person event was canceled due to the pandemic.
The annual celebration at the Hilde Performance Center typically draws more than 12,000 spectators.
Music But No Minnesota Orchestra This Year
This year’s event will be different. It will not feature the Minnesota Orchestra, which previously canceled all summer performances due to COVID-19 restrictions.
Instead, there will be different types of music as well as the signature fireworks that culminates the evening.
Expect the Minnesota Orchestra to return in 2022, however. That’s when Music in Plymouth celebrates its 50th anniversary.
There will also be scaled-back concessions at this year’s event. Attendees are welcome to bring picnics.
A 5K run, which raises money for Music in Plymouth is also back on. The race is scheduled for Saturday, June 26, the 25th anniversary of that event.
