Stevie Longwith, a regular Tunes at Twilight attendee says, “Tunes at Twilight has been a wonderful experience for our family and friends. The variety of artists provides a new experience each week. Over the past several years Tunes has introduced my son to all styles of music and an environment of friendship. We look forward to every Friday night of music, friends and relaxing.”

In case of rain, the indoor location will be at Rose Theater on the campus of Southeast Missouri State University. For more information about Tunes at Twilight please contact the Old Town Cape office at 334-8085 or visit www.oldtowncape.org.
