Labor Day Weekend at Mercer University

2 09 2009


If y’all are still looking for an idea of a great way to spend your Labor Day weekend, look no further than Macon, Georgia. Mercer University, located in Macon, hosts its 2009 Robert McDuffie & Friends Labor Day Festival for Strings.

Between concert engagements, McDuffie teaches string students at the Macon campus and hosts the Labor Day String Festival to showcase junior and senior year musicians with some of the nation’s premier concert artists.

The Festival’s opening concert takes place Thursday, September 3rd at 6 p.m., and a free closing concert is held on September 7th at 3 p.m. The faculty and students will perform one of my favorite classical pieces, Barber’s Adagio for Strings. The festival will feature Christopher Rex, Paul Murphy, and Andres Diaz.

If you’re looking for something to do between the opening and closing concerts, Macon is full of both city attractions, and those last lazy hazy days of summer relaxation.  There are gardens, monuments, and historic homes galore, as well as some fantastic eats to sample.

What are you doing for the Labor Day holiday?
