MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (CelebrityAccess) — Minneapolis music fans will soon be able to enjoy live music without needing worry about the noise disturbing the neighbors.

Starting next month, Minneapolis’s Lakewood Cemetery Memorial Chapel will play host to a concert series, starting on April 8th, with a concert by the all-women vocal group Anonymous Choir, which plays rock, soul and folk music, the Star Tribune reported.

Other concerts planned for the cemetery include David Huckfelt on May 6 and Dusty Heart on June 10. The shows there will be alcohol-free, in keeping with Lakewood policy and will take place on Sunday afternoons.

The historic chapel was built in 1910 by renowned architect Harry Wild Jones and features a 65-foot Byzantine-style dome, as well as a 10 million-piece mosaic. The chapel holds up to 160 people.

“We simply think it’s a good way for people to come in and enjoy this beautiful setting,” Lakewood Cemetery president Rob Gjerde told the Star-Tribune.

“Lakewood is reimagining the role of cemeteries in everyday life, and we think this is a great way of doing that,” Gjerde added. “The venue itself is a perfect fit for shows like this.”
