  • Extreme heat conditions brought on by a massive heat wave gripping most of the country has forced Winterthur to cancel the final performance of its new Outdoor Concert Series that began last month. Local musicians The Unruhlies were scheduled to take the stage this Friday night, for a rocking 2.5 hour show.
    Dubbed "Music Along the Bank," guests were invited to pack a picnic dinner, their favorite beverages and lawn chairs for easy entertainment featuring local and regional musicians. The event is free for members and $10 for non-members. Children 13 years old and younger are admitted for free.
    The music will continue, though.
    Following a brief hiatus to avoid more excessive temperatures in August, the series will resume in September. The Unruhlies are scheduled to make up their performance at 3p.m., Sunday, Oct. 13.
    Winterthur's Cottage Café will likely resume concert hours as well, serving a menu that blends traditional favorites alongside modern culinary delights. Guests may also browse the Museum Store during the event or take a stroll along the bank while listening to the music.
    The next performance is currently scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 15 and will feature Betty and the Bullet.
