The 2014 Summer in the Park Concert Series schedule at the Pappas Recreation Complex has been released. There will be free performances every Thursday evening at 6pm beginning on June 12.
The first concert feathers our own Greater Worcester Community Chorus, directed by Charles Pietrello. The GACC was rained out last year, so hopefully Mother Nature will cooperate and we’ll get to hear this wonderful chorus perform.
Speaking of rain, new this year are rain dates, which will be the Tuesday following any rained out show, again, beginning at 6pm.
For the second year, the Auburn Community Players will perform a musical at the Riley-Pappas Pavilion. This year’s Summer Theater Workshop production is “Schoolhouse Rock”, based on the popular Saturday morning television shorts from the 1970s. Two performances are scheduled; Thursday July 31 and Friday, August 1. Both shows are at 6pm and are free.
The remaining Thursdays are filled with a mix of sounds sure to please. There will be a Beatles tribute band, classic rock, oldies, country, blues, funk and swing.
The 2014 concert series is sponsored by Southbridge Credit Union, Allied Waste and Polar Beverages.
