The online iteration of the concert series started June 2 with local musician David Huffman doing a live question-and-answer session followed by a three-song set. Joshua Glenn Wright will take the virtual stage June 9 for the second show of the series. His live Q&A is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. on the Wayne Ferguson Plaza Facebook page followed by a mini-concert at 7 p.m.
Lewisville announced May 5 it was canceling all city-sponsored public events through late September due to the coronavirus pandemic.
“This is a very difficult decision to make,” City Manager Donna Barron said in a news release at the time. “From a budget standpoint, we’re at a point where we must choose between cutting programs or cutting people, and we felt it best to cut programs in order to retain our employees. The employees help make these programs so successful.”
The city has asked the community to submit videos of musical performances to be featured as part of the upcoming Sounds of Lewisville digital shows. The digital concert series is scheduled for every Tuesday in June and July. Upcoming performers are scheduled to be announced each Wednesday before the following week's shows throughout June and July.
Additional information about video submission guidelines can be found on the Lewisville city website.
