The next two concert in Londonderry’s Concerts on the Common summer series will be held on Wednesday, June 13 and Wednesday, June 20 at 7 PM at the Town Common on the corner of Mammoth Road and Pillsbury Road. Concerts on the Common are held every Wednesday through August 8 (except for July 4) and each concert features a different artist. The genres vary from 60′s music to rock and pop. This is a family friendly event, so feel free to bring lawn chairs, blankets, or games to enjoy while watching the performance. There will be concessions and an ice cream truck available.
The concert on the 13th will feature Not Too Sharp
, an all-male a Capella group from the University of New Hampshire
. The group begun in 2002 and performs a mix of pop and classic rock music. Their unique arrangement of The Doobie Brothers’ “Black Water” also demonstrates Not Too Sharp’s venturous nature. The concert on June 20th will feature music by ’60s Invasion
, a show band that plays music from the 1960′s. The band will be performing tributes of Elvis Presley, Bob Dylan or Roy Orbison in costume.
Concerts on the Common are organized by the Londonderry Arts Council
, a chartered town committee that aims to enrich Londonderry’s quality of life through promoting cultural arts in our community. Concerts on the Common have been held every summer for eleven years and they will continue to be fun community events in the future. These concerts help support the community by enabling local groups to sell concessions at the events. The organization that raised money through Concerts on the Common most recently was the Londonderry High School Math Team
, which sold concessions at the concert on June 4th. The concerts also bring the community together to hear live music, enjoy each other’s company, and show support for the town. The Londonderry music program has been an important part of the town for many years. The goal of these concerts is to encourage interest in music in the community and to ensure that Londonderry remains an enjoyable place to live.
Even if you can’t stay the whole time, the Londonderry Arts Council would love to see you there! The concert is free, but concessions will be available for purchase at the event.
