Don't miss Music in the Meadows Concert series as it kicks off the season's first concert.  Rhythm Society Orchestra is a fifteen-piece band specializing in swing music influenced by Count Basie and Harry James.  Crooner Paul King's style blends the sounds of Mel Torme, Joe Williams, and Frank Sinatra.  Based in Detroit, Rhythm Society is a fixture at major swing events, and has been featured on numerous shows and radio programs.  The horn-heavy sounds will get you up and dancing as the band transports you back to the 30's and 40's.  Bring your blanket and a picnic and enjoy the music al fresco!
