“We are excited to bring a variety of musical styles within one concert up to Oxford,” Klaber said.
Kim Daggy, operations manager from the Oxford Visitors Bureau, said this is the 35th year for the sponsor-driven the Summer Concert Series. On average, several hundred attendees up to 3,000 attendees (for the Community Picnic, this year on Aug. 31) enjoy the weekly series.
A selection committee makes recommendations as far as the band lineup, so there is input from the community on who plays the series, she said.
“I think Oxford is very welcoming, and there is a huge sense of community. I’m not born and raised in this community, but I’m very proud to be here, and to be a part of all that Oxford is about,” Daggy said.
She said, “There’s a huge sense of comradery and we embrace the student body and the excitement they bring when the academic year is here. We love that we have a lot of local businesses, surrounded by generational family farming. It’s just a very small-town feel. It’s hard to describe.”
