July brings another set of performers to downtown Brighton for the Brighton Arts and Culture Commission’s, “The Story of Us: Summer Performance Series.”

Every Thursday at 7 p.m., visitors to downtown Brighton can enjoy music, art, storytelling, and dance performances in either the Sculpture Garden or Hyne Alley.

The first two events in July will feature acoustic music and a caricature artist.

On Thursday, July 6, enjoy the musical stylings of three young, local talents: Sophia Avocado, Syd Burnham, and Trey Connor.

First to take the stage in the Sculpture Garden will be Sophia Avocado, a 12-year-old singer-songwriter and artist from Livingston County who recently signed to a small indie label and has had original songs placed in two movies including, “Once Upon A Time in Venice.”

Next up is Syd Burnham, a singer-songwriter from Brighton who draws her inspiration from bluesy rock, 90’s metal, and country folk and will serenade the audience with originals alongside a few covers by modern female rockers.

Trey Connor

Closing down the show is Trey Connor, a songwriter and guitarist from the Brighton/Hartland area whose portfolio includes a set of captivating originals and unique versions of contemporary acoustic and classic rock covers.


Thursday, July 13 will bring a unique type of caricature artist to Hyne Alley. Andrea Nancy is a young Michigan artist whose pop-surrealism gives her work a unique style. Influenced by a love for comics, science fiction, and fantasy, her caricatures will display bright colors, bold designs, and allow the viewer a chance to explore another universe.
