Lunchtime Concert Series in Allentown

This summer, listen to local musicians during a FREE lunchtime concert series called Summer in the City. The series will be held at the PPL Plaza (9th and Hamilton Streets) every Tuesday from 11:45 am to 12:15 pm. (In the event of rain, go to the Holiday Inn, Allentown Center City).

Here's the line-up, a well-rounded mix of swing, Celtic, jazz, and more:

July 21 - Marlene Gilley Swingtet
July 28 - Grey Sky Turn
August 4 - Sarah Ayers Band
August 11 - Todd Wolfe
September 1 - Dan DeChellis Trio
September 8 - BC & Company
September 15 - Large Flowerheads
September 22 - Fusion Jazz Trio
September 29 - Emerald City

I remember suggesting just such a concept in 1992 to the management at Dun & Bradstreet when that company was in the Martin Towers, Bethlehem. It only took more than 15 years for some other company to pull it off.

If you work in or near Downtown Allentown, attending this series is a great way to support local talent.
