We’ll be spending CFRU’s Royal City Rag on June 19 with the arts.

In the first hour, Simon Irving, artistic director of the Guelph Symphony Orchestra will be joining us to discuss the orchestra’s upcoming season.

The orchestra also presents its 7th Music in the Park outdoor concert on Sunday, June 27 at the Riverside Park Bandshell, beginning at 3 p.m.

The concert, featuring a selection of light classics for the entire family, is entitled “An Afternoon at the Proms”. Expect to hear a varied selection of  the English music you might hear at a Prom concert in London. That means, everything from Elgar to the Beatles.

Visit the Guelph Symphony Orchestra website, www.guelphorchestra.ca for more information about upcoming performances

In the second hour, we’ll be joined by our culture vulture Marie Zimmerman for our regular monthly chat about the Guelph art scene. This month we’ll be focusing on the possibility of Guelph having its own Artscape, the new Guelph Civic Square and the upcoming Art on the Street on July 17.

Should be a great show. As always we’ll wrap the whole thing up with some great music. You won’t want to miss it!

Royal City Rag, Saturdays 8-10 a.m. on CFRU93.3fm in Guelph. Remember if you don’t catch Royal City Rag live , you can always pick it up later that day via the CFRU archive or here, on the blog, a day or so later.

Culture Vultures, Daniel and Lynn were back in the studio for our monthly trip around the Guelph Art Scene on May 6. Great fun, as usual. There must have been something in the air as we were decidedly giddy this time around. Cool music, fun events. Hope you enjoy it.

This month we had one special group pick, Harry Manx Helps Sue. Blues Guitarist Harry Manx will be back in Guelph for a special concert for good friend of Royal City Rag, Sue Richards. Sue is battling Parkinson’s Disease. As an artist she doesn’t have the benefit of the health insurance policy those of us more fortunate often take for granted.

The show takes place at Guelph Little Theatre on June 13  at 7.30 p.m.  Also on the bill: Tannis Slimmon & the Uplifters, Brenda McMorrow, Jessy Bell-Smith, with emcee Jane Miller, magic by Ben Caesar, piano by Jeremy Shute and a photo exhibition by the Guelph Photo Club. Tickets are available at Wild Rose 519-763-2233, Ground Floor Music 519-827-1444 or online at www.helpingfriends.ca.
