CLASSICAL WQEJ-FM 89.7 TO BROADCAST LIVE FRIDAY NIGHT
FROM AMERISERV FLOOD CITY MUSIC FESTIVAL
PITTSBURGH—Join Classical WQEJ-FM 89.7 as they broadcast LIVE from the AmeriServ Flood City Music Festival in Johnstown on Friday, August 3 from 4 – 10 p.m.
The three-day music festival held annually in downtown Johnstown at Peoples Natural Gas Park will kick-off on August 3 at 4 p.m. and run through Sunday, August 5 at 10 p.m. Stages are continually programmed over the course of the festival with over 20 groups. The Festival is produced by the Johnstown Area Heritage Association, a non-profit that exists to preserve and showcase Johnstown’s nationally significant stories by providing high-quality educational, cultural and recreational experiences in the area’s unique historic settings.
In 1990, the Johnstown Area Heritage Association recruited the National Folk Festival to Johnstown for a three-year run, after which it began to produce the event on its own, renaming it the Johnstown FolkFest. AmeriServ Financial became the title sponsor a year later, and in 2009 the name was changed to AmeriServ Flood City Music Festival, to better convey that all types of music are presented.
WQEJ-FM 89.7 broadcasts were made possible by John D. Gibson, Attorney at Law in Johnstown for the past three Festivals.
