Christopher Brown Memorial Tree to be dedicated Oct. 11

Sep 27, 2021

MARION — The Christopher Brown Memorial Tree, recently planted on the lawn of the Marion Music Hall, will be dedicated on Oct. 11 at 1 p.m.

A plaque dedicating the tree will be unveiled as part of the dedication. There will be no rain date for the dedication, so come prepared if need be for inclement weather and bring a spare umbrella.

Chris Brown was an artist, a talented musician, piano restorer and technician, and gentle soul.
He was known in the Tri-Town for the attention he gave to all pianos in his purview.

A GoFundMe page was established to collect funds from those who initially expressed interest in planting this tree. After the money needed to plant the tree was raised, it was decided that extra funds would be donated to a future provisory memorial concert for Chris at the Marion Music Hall.

All are welcome to attend this tribute. Any financial contributions to support a future memorial concert may be made at the GoFundMe site for the Chris Brown Memorial Tree:
