Summer Concert Series Project

Summer Concert at the Trolley Shelter

Warm summer evenings with music in the air….  For the past decade the Conservancy has partnered with local organizations and businesses to create a series of free outdoor concerts on the Boulevard. The trolley shelter on the Boulevard has been transformed into a successful community gathering place, with extensive structural restoration in 2009 and a new garden in 2010.  Most of the concerts have been held on weekday evenings, taking advantage of cooler temperatures and long summer days.  Diverse musical genres have entertained a wide range of listeners from babies to retirees,  and part of the fun has been mixing with other concert-goers, be they families enjoying a picnic, couples on a date, or joggers pausing in their workout.   Some people just listen or dance, others bring snacks and still others take advantage of the enterprising food vendors who appear along the roads.  Behind the scenes, the Parks Department helps set up the site, police details slow car traffic, and volunteers set up chairs and assist the musicians.  It all comes together for a unique celebration of summer in the city.
