Music Park and “Sor Companna” Dedications Friday
Written by wendycorr on July 11, 2019
Two dedications at Cody City Park tomorrow will highlight the importance of music to the community.
At 5 p.m. Friday, two local volunteer boards will come together for a double-header celebration – the dedication of the interactive music park on the east side of City Park, and at 5:30 the action will move west to the bandshell area, where the Harry Jackson bronze “Sor Capanna” will be officially welcomed.
The event is being organized by the husband-and-wife team of John Gardnier and Cindy Katz. Gardnier is on the Park County Library Foundation board, which is responsible for fundraising for the music park. He says the City Park is an appropriate place to celebrate music, especially as a complement to the existing bandshell.
Cindy Katz is a member of the Cody Public Art Committee, which has been responsible for the installation of three bronzes this year in downtown Cody. She says the bronze, which depicts Italian folk singer Sor Companna, also celebrates music.
The public is invited to the dedications tomorrow evening. Comments will be made by members of the committees, along with Mayor Matt Hall and others who helped to bring these celebrations of music to Cody’s City Park.
