Appalachian music will ring out on the grounds of the Dyer Observatory in the next installment of the Music on the Mountain concert series on Sunday, October 24.

Admission is free for the 6 p.m. outdoor concert by Butch Baldassari and David Schnaufer, who teach mandolin and dulcimer, respectively, at Vanderbilt University's Blair School of Music. Julie Adams on cello and Richard Smith on guitar will open the show with a set of traditional and bluegrass music.

Everyone will be invited to view the stars through the observatory's Seyfert telescope after the concert. Visitors are encouraged to pack a picnic and bring blankets and lawn chairs for comfort.

Parking for the concert will be at the Bethel World Outreach Center on the corner of Old Hickory Boulevard and Granny White Pike. Starting at 4 p.m., shuttles will transport Music on the Mountain attendees to Dyer Observatory. Due to limited space, a maximum of 500 people will be admitted.

If the case of uncertain weather, call 615-373-4897 or check the Dyer Observatory Web site at for updates. Dyer Observatory is located at 1000 Oman Drive, off Granny White Pike between Old Hickory Boulevard and Otter Creek Road, near Richland Country Club. A map is available at
