Michigan Legacy Art Park Announces Summer Concert Lineup

THOMPSONVILLE, MICH – Tickets are now available for the Summer Sounds concert series at Michigan Legacy Art Park.

From July 6 through August 13, the Art Park will present family-friendly, outdoor concerts every weekend. Tickets are $10 and free for kids 12 and under.

The 2018 Summer Sounds concert series—presented by Mo & Linda White—features a superb, eclectic roster of talent, including The Bergamot, Nina & The Buffalo Riders, Sally Rogers & Claudia Schmidt, Jonathan Timm, Grupo Aye, and the Nashon Holloway Band.

The forest setting of the Art Park amphitheater provides a unique concert experience, and each of the six performers is different from the next, which gives the community as well as area visitors a chance to experience something new.
