Apr 29, 2019 by

Glen Providence Park - main entrance
550 West State Street

For the final performance in our 2019 Arts in the Park, we are 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. 

Rain date Sunday, September 8*
Glen Providence Park stage, 550 West State St., Media
Free & family-friendly 

Bring a blanket or chair, and relax on the lawn by the historical stage for a late afternoon concert. After the performance, head 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 to our concert sponsors, Diego’s Cantina, Media Recreation BoardWest End Flats, and Media Open Streets, and to Delaware County Parks & Recreation.

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.

*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.
