Music in the Park is back for another summer of FREE fun and dancing for your Wednesday Summer Nights. This year we've committed to improvements in a quality and consistent sound system for the whole series provided by Music in Tahoe. We've also worked really hard by listening to previous years feedback, and have one of our best lineups ever for the series.
About half of the bands are new to the Wednesday music series and we've made a conscious effort to spread out the variety of genre's throughout. Of course we couldn't do any of this without the support of our Series and Show Sponsors, as well as your donations at each concert. We hope you'll join us in the ampitheater this summer.
