MusicIC Festival moves online this week

While the in-person programming for the 2020 edition of MusicIC was canceled due to the COVID-19 situation, the festival still will offer programming this week as it moves online.
The festival, presented by the Iowa City UNESCO City of Literature, will offer performances by veteran festival performers and one MusicIC newcomer. These performers were scheduled to perform in person this year, and plans call for them to visit Iowa City in 2021.

The performances can be viewed at the festival website,, or at the festival’s Facebook page. The videos will be available starting at the listed time, and will be viewable from that point forward.
  • Saturday, June 20, 10:30 a.m. – “Ferdinand the Bull” story by Munro Leaf and music by Alan Ridout. Performances by Tricia Park, violinist (Artistic Director of MusicIC) and vocalist Meagan Brus (Managing Director of MusicIC). In partnership with the Iowa City Public Library children’s department.
Will will be raising funds for our artists and two local community organizations during these concerts. Donations made between now and June 30 through the City of Literature’s secure donation platform will be shared between our artists and the Black Mamas Matter Alliance and the African American Museum of Iowa. (Links will be available on the video descriptions).
We wish we could be together with you to share music and literature in person. Please join us virtually to celebrate the artistry of these talented musicians, and look forward to seeing them in Iowa City in 2021.
