Tunes at Noon Summer Concert Series 2009 Line-Up

If you feel like getting up that early, who am I to stop you?


I don't know many people who get up before noon (I have to include myself in this group). I can only guess at what unholy things go on between the hours of 7:30am and 12pm, but whatever it may be, I need no convincing that some kind of break is well-deserved at noon. Councillor Dawn Sloane, the Downtown Halifax Business Commission and the Halifax Regional Municipality, in association with Music Nova Scotia, are providing such a break with a free, summer concert series. Tunes at Noon will take place every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday at noon to 1pm in Grand Parade in Halifax.The series will run from July 15 to August 28.
