If you've never walked through the garden behind Providence Center for Faith and Healing on the Sacred Heart campus, treat youself this summer. Every Thursday, starting Thursday until Aug. 15, the garden will be the scene of summer noon-time concerts.
Across town, Holy Family Hospital will have three Tuesday noon concerts this summer.
Steven King, U.S. national giutar champion, will play the first concert.
He told me: "I play songs from different eras from people’s lives because you can think about a place in your youth where you haven’t been in a while...I like to surprise them with songs they’d never expect in guitar – like ‘What’s New Pussycat’ or the ‘Indiana Jones’ or ‘Harry Potter’ themes.”
When he said "What's New Pussycat" -- the Tom Jones 1965 classic -- I was immediately transported to fifth-grade summer, dusting furniture (one of my summer chores) listening to the radio.
