There will be over 200 artists selling and commissioning original works, and over 100 bands and performing artists showcasing their skills from six different stages and two performance areas.

Music in the Chamber: Dallas Classical Singers
Held every third Friday of the month at 8 PM from May to September, “Music in the Chamber” features a monthly concert in the amazing first floor Council Chambers at City of Frisco’s City Hall. The last concert of 2021 features the Texas Saxophone Quartet, a group of four musicians who can beautifully blend and shift between jazz and classical, all on the saxophone. The show is on September 17, so get your tickets soon.
