6-6-2015 Blackbird Society Orchestra!
To kick off our 2015 Summer Concert Series, Friends of Glen Providence Park is delighted to present Blackbird Society Orchestra for an afternoon of 1920’s Hot Jazz! Travel back in time to the “Roaring 20’s” of flappers, gangsters, and Model A’s with the Blackbird Society Orchestra. Hear the sounds of the “music people forgot about” including Eddie Lang, Bix Beiderbecke, Armstrong, Ellington, and many more!
Afternoon Concert in the Park
Saturday, June 6
Glen Providence Park Stage, State Street, Media
Rain date: Sunday, June 7
WEATHER UPDATE: The concert is on for its scheduled day of Saturday, June 6. There are possible showers in the early afternoon, but the skies should be clear for our 4:30 concert.
Bring a blanket or chair, and relax on the lawn by the stage to enjoy a late afternoon concert! After the concert, head into Media for dinner and shopping, just 2 blocks away on State Street. As with all of our events, this concert is free and open to the public.
- Concert Sponsor Seven Stones Cafe is one of the most inviting spots in town! With great coffee (and artfully prepared lattes!), Seven Stones has delicious offerings to enjoy over good conversation, a meeting, or a book. And the family-owned cafe is located just over 4 blocks from the entrance to the park!
- Concert Series Sponsor Media Recreation Board does so much for Media – including summer camp for kids, movies in Barrall Field, the Annual July 4th Celebration, and the Great Media Garage Sale Days.
- Concert Series Sponsor Media Rotary Foundation has been supporting the community by contributing to worthwhile organizations, groups and projects since 1983.
- Delaware County Parks & Recreation has cared for Glen Providence Park since its creation in 1935, and their support makes these concerts possible.
If the weather is questionable, we will post on Facebook and on our website by noon Saturday whether we will use our Sunday rain date.
