Make Summer 2019 Musical! Outdoor Concerts Around the Main Line

Live music just sounds better in the open air. All season long, these outdoor concerts strike a high note in your family's calendar.

A balmy summer afternoon or evening can only be improved by live music, toes in the grass, favorite snacks to hand, and friends and family nearby to share in the experience. This summer keeps your outdoor dance card filled with family-friendly performances all season!
