The Arts Council of Greater Kalamazoo is excited to renew its collaboration with the cities of Portage and Kalamazoo to promote summer concerts in Kalamazoo County for 2020. Though things may look a little different this year, we want you to know that keeping people safe and entertained is at the top of our minds! Summertime Live will continue to promote the Arts Council’s Concerts in the Park, the City of Portage’s Thursday Summer Entertainment Series, and Downtown Kalamazoo’s Beats on Bates Wednesday evening series.
Summertime Live is sponsored by the Arts Council of Greater Kalamazoo and the Irving S. Gilmore Foundation.
The Arts Council is pleased to bring you replays of our August (Virtual) Concerts in the Park live streams. These performances were recorded live from the Jolliffe Theatre. We would like to thank our generous sponsors and the Public Media Network for supporting Concerts in the Park and making these live streams and replays possible.
