7-25-2015 Jean Therapy in concert & 80th Anniversary Celebration!
For the second of four concerts in our 2015 Summer Concert Series, Friends of Glen Providence Park is delighted to present Jean Therapy! A little bit retro, a little bit modern, Jean Therapy plays an eclectic fusion of Jazz-Rock, Latin, Blues, and Soul – with a strong female vocal, beautiful keys, and a really nice jazz guitar.
Afternoon Concert & 80th Anniversary!
Saturday, July 25
Glen Providence Park stage, State Street, Media
Rain date: Sunday, July 26*
We will also celebrate the 80th anniversary of Glen Providence Park! On July 24, 1935, George and Eleanor Butler signed a deed donating the majority of the land to establish Delaware County’s first park as a bird sanctuary and arboretum. The Butlers’ grandchildren will join us as we celebrate the anniversary of this generous gift with a concert, and with anniversary cake!
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 Diego’s Cantina & Tequila Bar makes traditional peasant style food from the Puebla region of Mexico, on a wood burning grill. And it’s located just over 2 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. We are grateful that this summer, they resurfaced the historical concert stage for the park’s 80th anniversary!
*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.
