MERIDIAN TOWNSHIP, Mich. — The Harris Nature Center, 3998 Van Atta Road in Meridian Township, has launched a new series of events this summer called Music in Nature, which features live music outside and freedom for the audience to move around the park while listening.

The second event is the Arlene McDaniel Trio on Saturday August 10th at 5 - 8 pm. They will play on a woodland stage while visitors choose to sit and listen concert-style, walk the trails, picnic or listen from another sitting area in the park. The program is sponsored by the Harris Nature Center Foundation and is free to the public. For more information, contact the Harris Nature Center at or 517.349.3866.

“Imagine walking through the woods and hearing sweet music playing or picnicking to an upbeat tune,” said Nature Center Coordinator Kit Rich. “This is the experience we hope to provide for people with our Music in Nature Series.”

Arlene McDaniel is a well-known local jazz pianist who is appreciated for sharing her sophisticated originals as well as jazz favorites. The trio will also include Ed Fedewa on bass and Ian LeVine on drums. Together the group will provide an evening of swing, funk, serenity and blues-based jazz.

The series continues with Strings and Wood on September 14th.

For more information about this and other programs offered at the Harris Nature Center, contact 517.349.3866 or and find out more online at and and
