Concerts in thePark

The St. Michaels Community Center’s Concerts in the Park Series is returning to the waterfront Muskrat Park on Thursdays from 6 to 7:30pm continuing through Aug. 29.
All 13 performances are listed on the St. Michaels Community Center’s website, with performances including Ampersand, The Comfort Zone Band, Black Dog Alley, Home Brew, and more. Local favorite Three Penny Opera will perform on July 18 followed by a special performance by international jazz saxophonist Anthony ‘Turk’ Cannon, who is from St. Michaels and will be returning to perform on July 24.
Muskrat Park features an expansive lawn overlooking St. Michaels Harbor and the Miles River, with limited picnic tables and a covered gazebo for performances. Guests are encouraged to bring a blanket or chairs, along with friends, family, neighbors, your leashed dog, or just yourself to enjoy the concerts. Picnics are encouraged, with alcohol prohibited.
Popcorn, ice pops, bottled water, and other treats will be available for purchase, with proceeds benefiting the neighbors in need served by the St. Michaels Community Center. Plenty of locally owned restaurants and parking are also nearby.
The free concert series is made possible through the generous sponsorship of local businesses acknowledged at each concert.
The St. Michaels Community Center’s newly renovated building at 103 Railroad Ave. is opened late May, with expanded programs and services to include a new culinary arts and hospitality workforce training program.
The renovations support SMCC’s mission to serve, empower, and connect the community, with year-round programs and activities. More about SMCC’s capital improvements are at www.stmichaelscc.org/future.
Donations to SMCC and proceeds from its Treasure Cove Thrift Shop on Railroad Ave. in St. Michaels help the nonprofit ensure children and adults from the Newcomb Bridge to Tilghman Island have the resources they need. More is at www.stmichaelscc.org.
