It will be a melodic “thank you.”

The event will be held rain or shine from noon to 8:30 p.m. in and around the west pavilion located across the parking lot west of Senior Hall.

TALK primarily focuses on nurturing teen leadership in the arts and hosts various music, theater and spoken-word events in the area.

The second annual Trail Mix outdoor concert will be an informal, picnic-friendly event, according to Steve Ploum, TALK’s founder and director. Food ― including a s’mores bar ― will also be available for sale, with proceeds benefiting TALK.

“Teens will toast a marshmallow and then build a s’more with whatever you want from the items offered,” Ploum said. “One word: bacon!”

The group also plans to offer a special VIP seating area, a roped-off area for a party of two with comfortable chairs “and a bell that will summon a teen to wait on you,” Ploum said. Access to the VIP section will require a donation, although the specific amount has not yet been determined.

Like the first Trail Mix concert in 2016, the event will feature a number of local musicians, including MG Bailey, Falling Stars, Enough for Now, Christal Luster, Work in Progress, Said the Kat, Tin Men, Aaron Cruz, Just Aggie, Jim Joyce, Violet Buchtel Devine, Audrey Faris, Audrey Mayes, Charlotte McManus and Aileen Straley.
