Sounds of free music fill summer air

WHAT COULD BE BETTER than free entertainment outdoors on a warm summer evening?

Not much, really, and there’s plenty of opportunities to enjoy that all summer long in Plymouth and Sheboygan County.

Nearly every genre of music imaginable will be performed various evenings at two venues in Plymouth as well as in Sheboygan and Sheboygan Falls.

That’s on top of live outdoor entertainment at several resorts, taverns and bars in Elkhart Lake, Plymouth and elsewhere.

All together, it makes for a tuneful summer of outdoor music.

Right here in Plymouth, City Park has been filled with music Thursday evenings for decades and the tradition begins anew again this Thursday.

The Plymouth Municipal has anchored the concert series on the Howard Stoll Family Pavilion on Grove Street in City Park and they will be entertaining fans for five of the nine nights of the series. The rest range from barbershop quartet singing to a brass band to big band sounds.

The highlight, of course, is the annual German Night July 26, which always draws an enthusiastic crowd and fi lls the park with the sounds, sights, smells and tastes of true gemutlichkeit.

All of the concerts offer an evening of great family entertainment with a chance to hear good music while enjoying a little fresh air in a lovely park setting, all at no charge.

Concessions are available in the cake stand during the concerts and there’s the chance, before or after the concert, to enjoy the other fine facilities offered in City Park – the kid-friendly playground area, picnic tables and grills, the Outdoor Aquatic Center and more.

The concerts draw a solid core of dedicated followers, but there’s always plenty of room every Thursday for more – grab a seat on one of the benches or bring your own lawn chairs and/or blanket, relax and enjoy some great entertainment.

If that’s not enough to satisfy your need for live music outdoors, the Generations intergenerational center offers its monthly free Summer Concert Series on the second Tuesday of June, July, August and September, on their beautiful parklike campus with food and drink from the Pic a Deli Grill and Plymouth Brewing Co.

Or head east to Sheboygan Falls, where the Sheboygan Falls Chamber-Main Street offers free concerts twice a month in picturesque Settlers Park, every second and fourth Wednesday through August.

And if you want to head to Sheboygan, the John Michael Kohler Arts Center hosts the Levitt AMP weekly concert series all summer long on the center’s Festival Green.

All in all, there are plenty of opportunities to satisfy your musical desires while enjoying the great outdoors and the fine summer weather.
