The Newport/Oregon Coast Community Drum Circle will present the final monthly concert in its 11th annual Summer Celebration Performance Series of free outdoor stage shows this Saturday, Sept. 25, from noon to 3 p.m. at the Literacy Park Amphitheater at 370 W Olive St., behind the Newport Public Library.

The season finale will feature three hours of multicultural traditional and indigenous World Beat rhythm and song by the Thunder & Lightness Trio, with Mary-Beth Nickel on the Native American flutes, percussionists Chandler Davis and Sandra Surber, and special musical guests.

The show will also incorporate the audience with a supervised and facilitated open drum circle segment. Due to COVID concerns, loaner drums will not be available, but participants are encouraged to bring their own drums or light percussion instruments.

All ages and skill levels are invited to enjoy and participate in the family friendly and pet friendly (on a leash) gathering. There is plenty of bleacher style seating in the amphitheater, and the grassy areas in the park are perfect for laying down a picnic lunch.

For more information, contact Chandler Davis at or via Facebook Messenger.
