                                   Stay at Songbird Prairie Inn and Spa after enjoying the music!
The 7th Annual Summer Rhapsody Music Festival begins TONIGHT!  For the next 5 weeks, you can enjoy free concerts in the park.  Bring your lawn chairs, blankets, picnic baskets - everything you need to enjoy!
Here's what you can find each week:
  • July 13: Hoosier Highway
Hoosier Highway is certainly proof of what happens when the right musicians and artists get together. With a wealth of talent and experience Hoosier Highway has quickly become one of the Midwest's most dynamic live performance bands. 

Delivering precise vocal harmonies and original musical arrangements, Hoosier Highway not only entertains, but also takes their high-energy show directly to their fans through audience interaction and involvement. The band plays a wide variety of country music, from top-40 to classic, as well as their own original songs. 
  • July 20: Summer Rhapsody Festival Orchestra
This 61-piece orchestra will perform A Tribute to John Williams, including music from all of our favorite films: Jaws, Hook, Schindler's List, Star Wars and more!  Miguel Rosario, Artistic Director and Conductor, has a wonderful concert planned for all to enjoy!
Valparaiso Middle School Band Concert begins at 4pm
  • July 27- The Corey Dennison Band
Long-awaited by loyal fans, The Corey Dennison Blues Band debuted in Chicago in early 2013, storming the stages of Buddy Guy's Legends, Rosa's, and Leroy's Hot Stuff. In late 2013, Corey's always entertaining stage presence prompted the release of "live in chicago" a thrilling document of a typical night in a Windy City blues club. The album leaves little doubt that the Blues has found its premier young lion, Corey Dennison.
  • August 3- Libido Funk Circus
While LFC's musical catalog has certainly become their trademark, it's only half of the story. This tireless, six-piece band is on a quest to entertain at any cost! Did we mention there are three dedicated lead vocalists, including one guy and two girls? And all six band members sing!
 
  • August 10- Kashmir
Chicago's Led Zeppelin Show

 
All concerts begin at 7pm.  For more information, visit our website.

As soon as the bluebirds start their fluttering up and down in front of the picture windows in the sunroom of our Bed and Breakfast, we hurry out to serve them their ” live” breakfast of  mealworms. You can almost hear them chirp back “thank you”. The feeder is about 10 feet from their nesting box 

We have so many understory trees native to our woodlands, including wild plum, sassafras, oak , sycamore and hickory. We have planted the bluebird’s favorite tree, the redbud, with those tasty berries. We look forward to the sometimes 3 broods of bluebirds in our boxes.  The songbirds perform their daily operas from dawn till dusk, loudly proclaiming their treetop territories. Many winged sopranos-meadowlark ,warbler, wren, robin, thrush, swallow, purple martin, oriole, and red-winged blackbird can be heard through our microphones in the sunroom.
We had 5 eggs in the front box and 4 in the box in the back meadow and 5 in the garden box.  Today June 1st they are about to fledge!
The non-migratory birds blue jays, cardinals, chickadees, nuthatches, and goldfinches who toughed it out through the frozen months are now singing with joy for spring is in the air. Be sure to bring your binoculars and birding books, along with your camera. There are many great photo opts. See you soon! Make your reservation today.    For reservations call 219-759-4274 or book on-line at www.songbirdprairie.com
