The 2019 Summer Concert Series consists of seven concerts featuring a variety of musical styles. The concert committee makes an effort to include many professional bands with local University City residents. This year features three returning favorites as well as several bands making their Concert Series debut. All concerts are at Standley Park, 3585 Governor Drive. All concerts are scheduled for Sunday evenings. Sound check and warmup begins at 4:30; concert from 5 to 7 PM.

Standley Park is a fun and family friendly venue with playground and large grassy area. Bring a lawn chair or blanket, snacks and drinks, and enjoy a lovely evening with friends and neighbors in University City. Arrive early to pick out a favorite spot in the shade. Don’t forget your dancing shoes! Please note that concerts are subject to cancellation due to inclement weather.
