For the penultimate* performance in our free and family-friendly 2017 Arts in the Park, Friends of Glen Providence Park is delighted to present Eco del Sur for Andean & Latin American folk music! Founded in 2000 by musicians from Colombia and Ecuador, Eco Del Sur means “Echoes of the South.” They play a wide range of styles and rhythms influenced by the Pre-Columbian, Spanish, and African cultural heritages. Eco Del Sur’s amazing amazing array of musical instruments includes traditional and indigenous ones created by the Pre-Columbian civilizations more than 5,000 years ago… used to play famous Latin American songs that are now part of the world popular culture!

Rain date Sunday, September 10
Free, family-friendly & open to the public

Bring a blanket or chair, and relax on the lawn by the historical stage for an early evening concert. After the performance, head into Media for dinner and shopping, just 2 blocks away on State Street.

Thank you to our concert sponsors Diego’s Cantina, Media Recreation Board, and West End Walk; and to Delaware County Parks & Recreation for making our concerts possible. 

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. Additional support for Project Stream is provided by PECO.

*Eco del Sur was originally to be the final performance in our summer series, but the Jeffrey Gaines concert, originally scheduled for August 12, was rescheduled to September 23.
