Summer Family Fun: Elgin Summer Concert Series
When you live in Elgin, you will never have a shortage of entertainment, especially in the summer months. This summer, the City of Elgin is hosting a free concert series in the Wing Park Bandshell, continuing a much loved tradition.
Concerts are free, and mostly are held on Tuesdays in June or July at 7pm. So come and join 300-500 other Elginites for this fun series! Bring your lawn chairs or blankets, relax, and enjoy live music, refreshments sold by local community groups, and the company of friends from the area.
Here is this summer’s schedule and descriptions from Elgin Parks and Recreation:
Sunday, June 24 – Barbershoppers (3:00pm)
Enjoy one of Elgin’s own vocal a cappella groups “Minutemen of Harmony”. It won’t take you long to discover they are just a bunch of regular guys from all walks of life with one thing in common….the love of singing in the barbershop style!
June 26 – The Chi-Town Showstoppers
This 12-piece ensemble is truly a class act, garnering rave reviews at every performance around Chicagoland, from summer festivals and corporate events to private parties and weddings. Put on your dancing shoes, and prepare to be blown away!
