The 2016 Music Americana Program is designed to be a musical patriotic tribute to our state and to our country. It is traditionally held on July 3rd each year to kick off our Independence Day festivities. This year’s performance will be on Sunday evening, July 3rd at 7:00 p.m. in the new T. Furth Music Center at Trine University. All performers are local and donate their time and talent to providing the program.
