Musical May

As they say, “April showers bring May flowers”, and Longwood Gardens does have plenty of flowers! More importantly, May is filled with musical performances that will have you dancing around Lancaster County. Each performance is accompanied by other treats, such as shopping at Ten Thousand Villages or downtown Lancaster, flowers at Longwood Gardens, wine at the Tamanend Winery, and dinner at Rosa Rosa Ristorante Italiano. All of this musical entertainment is located near the Adamstown Inns & Cottages, a Lancaster Pennsylvania bed and breakfast.

The Cafe at Ten Thousand Villages features different musicians each week. On Friday May 20, there will be live music in the cafe with Ed and Maureen Mashas.  Don’t forget to visit thee 10 000 villages store, where they sell hand-made, fair trade gifts and home decor. Another shopping opportunity is in downtown Lancaster during Music Friday. The third Friday of every month, music can be heard throughout the entire city! Friday night music, May 20th, will feature Rock and Roll with John King Dance Band & the Snake Oil Trio.

The American Music Theatre begins Andrew Lloyd Weber: Music of the Night, on Friday May 13. This Pa theatre will use Weber’s songs from the musicals, Phantom of the Opera, Les Miserables, Cats, and many more to bring the stage to life. The American music theater is well known for their fantastic performances and I highly recommend seeing one of their their live shows.

Late night jazz is another exciting way to enjoy music in Lancaster County.  The Rosa Rosa Ristorante Italiano has musicians every weekend, and a fantastic dinner menu! The Belvedere Inn also host late night jazz on the Weekends.  This weekend will feature Tom Pontz Project on Friday and Sonia V Trio on Saturday.

With the many musical options in Lancaster County, you will be able to find a genre or activity that interests you. After listening to music out on the town, feel free to put on soft music as you relax in your jacuzzi tub, or drift off to sleep at the Amethyst Inn, a luxury bed and breakfast in Lancaster, Pa.
