The Forest Park Amphitheater will soon again be alive with the sound of music. The Springfield Park Department will host the Forest Park Concert Series on the first four Thursdays in June at the Forest Park Amphitheater. The outdoor concerts, all scheduled for 6:30 p.m., are open to the public and free of charge.
Mayor Domenic J. Sarno said, “I am thrilled to have concerts returning to Forest Park. This year’s lineup will bring a lot of enjoyment to family and friends and the Concert Series provides our residents with programs that enhance our quality of life. It is my goal to increase arts and performances in park programming and I look forward to enjoying this year’s talented line-up!”
Executive Director of the Department of Parks, Buildings and Recreation Management Patrick J. Sullivan added, “The Park Department is proud to have concerts back at the Forest Park Amphitheater. I want to recognize the concert committee, Daryl Moss, Paula Thayer and Sydney Pasini. They have put together a great line up for 2019. I would like to thank the Barney Trustees, as it is through their efforts in the management of the Barney Estate that we have the resources to coordinate these great concerts. We encourage everyone to pack a picnic supper and enjoy the music in a beautiful setting.”
