Enjoy Live Music at the Concerts in the Park Series

July 02, 2018

There’s nothing like a summer evening spent in the park with friends and family. In the month of July, you can grab some picnic blankets, lawn chairs and your favorite snacks to do just that at the Zion Park’s Concerts in the Park series. Every Thursday evening, from 7-8:30 p.m., enjoy a lively performance from a featured local or regional artist. Up first this month is the Lake County Symphony Orchestra on July 5. For their annual, patriotic “American Salute” concert, listen to the best of Americana music including Copland, Sousa, Bernstein, and Gould. Throughout the rest of the month, catch artists including Chicago Soul Revue, Rockin’ Fenderskirts, New Odyssey, and Risky Business. The concert series includes artists from a variety of genres, so there’s always something for everyone in the family to groove to. You’ll love the performances, but even more so, you’ll love the opportunity to kick-back and celebrate a beautiful summer evening.
