Local Musicians Play For Early Voters At City-County Building

Local Musicians Play For Early Voters At City-County Building

Local musicians are playing music for early voters waiting in line at the City-County Building through Monday.

The Indianapolis Cultural Trail hired the professional musicians to play on Lugar Plaza.  Executive Director Karen Haley said the organization wanted to give people something to enjoy. 

"You know you’re waiting in line and music -- live music -- is something that you can actively or passively participate in," Haley ssaid. "So it just seemed like a really natural fit for us to have, to hire some of the city’s best musicians to come out and play and entertain and perform for people while they’re waiting in line to do their civic duty."

Haley said the Cultural Trail that winds through the city is no longer just a path for walking or biking. 

"We are wanting to think creatively about we can engage with our artists community in Indianapolis to continue to have their work whether that be visual or musical or performance art available for people to experience and enjoy along the cultural trail," Haley said. 

Plans are underway to offer more outdoor activities along the trail and plaza during the winter to help people stay connected safely during the pandemic.
