Bandstand Concert and Film Friday: Cynthia Shelhart and 'Finding Dory'

Back To Front Page


Westchester Public Library’s free concert and family film series continues at 7 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 4, at the bandstand in Thomas Park in downtown Chesterton with music by Cynthia Shelhart, followed by the family film, “Finding Dory” at dusk, about 8 p.m.

Those who attend are invited to bring lawn chairs, blankets, picnic dinners, and bug spray to make the experience more enjoyable. In the case of rain, both events will be offered in the Baugher Center, 100 W. Indiana Avenue, Chesterton.

This series is funded in part by the Chesterton-Porter Rotary Club. Library concerts are free and open to the public.

Cynthia Shelhart, a resident of Chesterton, is recognized as an outstanding performer of traditional and contemporary solo harp music. She performs on both a 68-string double-row harp and other single- and double-row lap harps. Her original compositions are always included in every performance.

In the movie, Dory is a wide-eyed, blue tang fish who suffers from memory loss every 10 seconds or so. The one thing she can remember is that she somehow became separated from her parents as a child. With help from her friends Nemo and Marlin, Dory embarks on an epic adventure to find them. Her journey brings her to the Marine Life Institute, a conservatory that houses diverse ocean species. Dory now knows that her family reunion will only happen if she can save mom and dad from captivity. This movie is rated PG and has a running time of 1 hour and 45 minutes.

The Summer Concert and Film Series will conclude on Friday, Aug. 11 at Hawthorne Millennium Park Gazebo in Porter, with music by Strings and Keys at 7 p.m., followed by “The Wizard of Oz” which is rated G and has a running time of 1 hour and 42 minutes.

The complete list of concerts and films can be obtained at Thomas Library, 200 W. Indiana Ave., Chesterton; Hageman Library, 100 Francis St., Porter; or the Westchester Township History Museum at 700 W. Porter Avenue, Chesterton.
