Brown Bag Concert Series: Lauren Guerriero Creekmore
Got Spring Fever? We've got the sure cure at the Northeast Louisiana Arts Council’s noontime outdoor Brown Bag Concerts Series! We close the series with a rising star and uplifting repertoire! Lauren has graced commercials and a number of musical venues and remains a popular standout in Strauss Theater productions, with a voice and stage persona as fresh as Spring. She’s planning a great mix from varied genres and eras – an appropriate finish for the series and herald of the season! The performances are in Anna Gray Noe Park across from St. Francis Medical Center in downtown Monroe. Some seating is provided, though picnic blankets and lawn chairs are welcome. The in-case-of-rain venue will be the First Baptist Church of Monroe.
