CLARKSVILLE, Tenn.-- Austin Peay State University’s Music Department is bringing live music to the Downtown Commons at 215 Legion St. with a free public concert at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, May 4, 2023.

“Aside from great entertainment, this concert will provide a unique performance experience for our students,” said Dr. Gregory Wolynec, Austin Peay professor of music. “With spring commencement on May 5, we will provide a lovely event for graduates, their families and anyone that would like to support the university’s student musicians with an evening of great music.”
