Summer Music Series Kicks Off in June

 

The Summer Music Series, one of the highlights of summer in Winston-Salem, returns next month. The events attract crowds of people to the downtown area to enjoy the wide variety of music presented and to sample the many types of food available.

The series, entering its 20th season, is produced by the Downtown Winston-Salem Partnership, with help from local music promoters Jill Martin-Byers (Summer on Liberty) and Carl Dennerson (Downtown Jazz). The Downtown Jazz events, presented by Winston-Salem Federal Credit Union and co-produced with Post Entertainment, are held during 6 Friday nights in between June and August from 6 p.m. until 9 p.m. in Corpening Plaza. The first concert will be held June 9 and will feature Kim Waters and the John Dillard Trio. The Summer on Liberty series, presented by Truliant Federal Credit Union, is held on Saturdays in the Downtown Arts District at the intersection of 6th and Liberty Streets from 7 p.m. until 10 p.m. The first concert will be held June 10 and will feature soul band Tony Dove and the Headlynerz.

The popular series is privately funded by sponsors. “We are excited about the 20th season of the Summer Music Series and the many opportunities it offers the community to experience downtown Winston-Salem,” said Jason Thiel, president of the Downtown Winston-Salem Partnership. “It would not be possible without the tremendous support of our sponsors.” 

The sponsors for the Summer Music Series are:

Truliant Federal Credit Union
Winston-Salem Federal Credit Union
The Winston-Salem Millennium Fund
Volvo of the Triad 
City of Winston-Salem
