The Soldotna Chamber of Commerce has released its Music in the Park summer lineup.
The free, family-friendly concert series was recently awarded the Levitt AMP Grant Award — a $25,000 matching grant from the Mortimer and Mimi Levitt Foundation. The foundation is “a national funder of creative placemaking that empowers communities to inject new life into underused public spaces,” according to a chamber press release. The grant is a dollar-for-dollar match from the foundation, with a minimum contribution from the Soldotna Chamber of $25,000.
The grant was awarded in December. Seventeen other small to midsize towns and cities across the country also received the grant award.
From June 5 to August 21, the series will feature 12 concerts ranging from genres like rock, hip-hop, blues, bluegrass and country. The concert headliners include Seward’s Blackwater Railroad Company, The Resonant Rouges, Meghan Linsey, The Forest That Never Sleeps, Pamyua, Barcelona Boys Choir, Milo Matthews, The Wigh Pets, The Burrouhs, Kuff Knots and Christine Elise Rose’s Pawn Shop and The Rebel Blues Band.
The series will kick off June 5 with Blackwater Railroad Company, with an opener from local artists The Cowskinners. Concerts will be from 6-9 p.m. on Wednesdays in Soldotna Creek Park. The full schedule can be found on the Soldotna Chamber’s Facebook page.
