Now that it’s practically summer, you’re probably going to be spending a lot more time outdoors. It’s just the natural thing to do.

So why not get your outdoors time in while enjoying some live music – and for free?

It’s summer concert season, and it all gets going the day this paper comes out (Tuesday) with the Nevers’ Band at Eagle Square to kick off Concord’s Music Series Summer in the City.

The Nevers’ Band will play on Tuesdays at various locations around the city (in addition to the Fourth of July concert). The city also offers Thursday Nights at Eagle Square, which begins in July.

The Summer Concerts on the Green series at Presidential Oaks begins June 26 and will continue weekly through Aug. 7. With the historic Odd Fellows Home as a backdrop, the public is welcome to relax on the plush, green lawn in a comfortable chair while enjoying complimentary popcorn and bottled water during each performance. New this year will be several special events planned to coincide with the musical shows.

And don’t forget about the Concord Library Music on the Lawn series that starts the final Wednesday in June. The band sets up on Prince Street, so bring the family, and some lawn chairs or blanket and set up in the grass strip next to the library. Dos Amigos, Kona Ice and Constantly Pizza will be selling pizza, chips and salsa, snacks and more.

The Bow Rotary Club concert series also begins in July, but the schedule is still being finalized.

In an effort to help you plan out your listening schedule, we have given you the entire summer schedule to peruse (minus Bow Rotary) and decide which ones to attend. But we say, “Why not go to all of them?”
