The arts are alive in Fairfax City!

On a beautiful Sunday afternoon, Marcolivia Quartet performed their "Women's Romantic Composers Concert" for a socially distanced audience, each of whom reserved a "square" for seating in the open-air Veterans Amphitheater.

The concert was part of the Bonita Lestina Old Town Hall Performance Series, whose artists used a myriad of media to share music and the arts during the pandemic.
