OXFORD — The Oxford Community Center at 4 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 15, will host “Back to the Garden: A Celebration of Woodstock’s 50th Anniversary and a Revisiting of American Anthems.”

In celebration of the 50th anniversary of Woodstock, the community center and Carpe Diem Arts will pay tribute to the historic, groundbreaking music festival and the ideals it embodied — peace, love, freedom and unity.

Widely viewed as one of the most profound and influential cultural events in U.S. history, Woodstock took place in August 1969 and evolved into a gathering of nearly a half million individuals who joined in the three-day celebration.

Featured artists will include Walter Parks and Kentavius Jones, performing some of Richie Havens’ songs from his opening set at Woodstock. Chris Noyes will share Joni Mitchell’s “Woodstock” song, and favorite songs and anthems from Woodstock and the past five decades. The audience will be invited to join the featured performers in singing along on the choruses.

Tickets are $20, and available online at www.oxfordcc.org or by calling 410-226-5904.
