9-7-2019 Arts in the Park: Bill Ricchini of Summer Fiction!

Aug 25, 2019 by

For the final performance in our free and family-friendly 2019 Arts in the Park, Friends of Glen Providence Park is proud to present heartwarming summer pop with Bill Ricchini of Summer Fiction! His music is described as “Charmingly catchy heartache meets sun-kissed disenchantment” by the Philadelphia Inquirer, “Heartwarming summer pop” by NPR, and “Lovely, bookish songs” by Vogue. We couldn’t agree more.

Arts in the Park

Saturday, September 7
5:00-6:30 pm – new time this year!
Glen Providence Park Stage, 550 West State Street, Media
Rain date: Sunday, September 8*

Bring a blanket or chair, and relax on the lawn by the historical stage for a late afternoon concert. After the performance, stroll into Media for dinner and shopping, just two blocks away on State Street!

More praise for Summer Fiction:

  • SPIN: Brian Wilson melodic levity meets Johnny Marr guitar jangle…effortlessly engaging.
  • New York Magazine: Brilliant 60′s-esque AM pop.
  • WNYC: Perfect pop melodies and arrangements that may remind you of Pet Sounds-era Beach Boys.
  • Magnet: Wistfully demur on the surface, delving into everyday matters of the heart with a icy pair of forceps, leaving all manner of collateral damage in its wake.

Thank you:

  • Concert Sponsor Diego’s Cantina 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 West End Flats is the bold, upscale new apartment building, one block from the park’s main entrance.
  • Concert Series Sponsor Media Open Streets had an exciting inaugural event in 2018, and will hold its second annual event on Saturday, September 28.
  • Delaware County Parks & Recreation has cared for Glen Providence Park since its creation on Halloween, 1935!
  • This summer’s Arts in the Park was made possible by funding from Project Stream, a grant initiative of the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts that is regionally administered by the Greater Philadelphia Cultural Alliance.

*RAIN DATE: If the weather is questionable, we will post on Facebook and on our website by 1:00 Saturday whether we will use our Sunday rain date.
