The arts are an integral part of the Bethesda city scene and as we are now beginning to enjoy warmer weather, we also have the opportunity to enjoy outdoor music at our FREE Summer Concert Series courtesy of Bethesda Urban Partnership.  Every Thursday evening a new band and music genre is featured.  This Thursday, May 12th, enjoy the big band sounds of the 18-piece Swing Shift Big Band.  Their rich, full sound is sure to please and to get you up and dancing!

The Summer Concert Series is hosted at Veteran’s Park on the corner of Woodmont and Norfolk Aves. from 6 PM – 8 PM every Thursday evening through July 21st.  Check out our recent blog about Veteran’s Park on Day 109.  The concert series is held there each week and organized by BUP (Bethesda Urban Partnership).  The full 2011 concert series calendar is available at their website

In the coming weeks, Bethesda can look forward to hearing the sounds of rock, blues, West African funk, reggae, dance variety, soul and jazz.  The price is right for this wonderful local event.  It’s a great way to enjoy a nice warm spring or summer evening in our town.  You can grab an awesome burger right there next to Veteran’s Park at The Burger Joint or a coffee at Starbuck’s right at the corner and relax while enjoying the free concert.  I hope to see you there!     ~Amy
