The Town of Aurora has lifted the curtain on its 2019 Concerts in the Park lineup.

The popular summer concert series, which will take place at Town Park each Wednesday night in July and August and is presented by TD Bank Group, gets underway with something for the kids on July 3 with the Marquee Travelling Troupe, blending musical theatre favourites with pop.

The rest of the series kicks off on July 10 with Nicklebach – A Tribute to Nickelback, followed by the Juno-nominated Sultans of String, who blend Celtic roots with flamenco, jazz, and more, on July 17.

The series continues July 24 with American Rogues, who have composed music for Game of Thrones, Outlander and more.

Tributes to classic favourites help end July and take the series through mid-August with Exodus – Tribute to Bob Marley on July 31, Mountain Music – Tribute to Alabama on August 7, and A Tribute to Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix on August 14.

Concerts in the Park gets a little bit country on August 21 with the Magna Hoedown Showdown, before the series finale on August 28 featuring Abbamania – Tribute to Abba.

“From start to finish, we’ve covered a lot of different genres and tried to be as celebratory as possible,” says Shelley Ware, Special Events Coordinator for the Town of Aurora. “There’s a story behind each concert chosen. We have everything for you. We have the Farmers’ Market on site, you can grab snacks or even a full dinner. Experience the evening – it’s a summer tradition and it is a tradition not to be missed.”

The Aurora Farmers’ Market will set up a mini-market from 5 – 9 p.m.

Concerts take place each Wednesday from 7 – 9 p.m. Admission is free, but donations to the Aurora Food Pantry are encouraged. For more, visit aurora.ca/summerconcerts.
