This summertime program takes place on the South Lawn of the Old State Capitol at Noon on Wednesdays from Memorial Day to Labor Day, weather permitting.  Free performances range from singer/songwriters to musical theater performers and from dancers to jugglers.  It’s a great way to break up the work day or simply to enjoy the sights and sounds of Downtown Springfield.
