Concerts in the Park, one of Kalamazoo’s long standing traditions offered Sunday’s in June, July and August in Bronson Park, delivers a unique offering unlike other concert series in Kalamazoo. The 2013 season has an exciting mix of music genres – jazz, blues, gospel, big band, bluegrass, American roots and Broadway
Each concert is free, and is friendly for the entire family. Bringing picnic meals (no grilling allowed), blankets or lawn chairs is encouraged. Each concert begins at 4pm and the concerts’ rain location is First United Methodist Church, just across from Bronson Park (unless otherwise noted).
August 18 – Hot Club of Detroit
Returning to Kalamazoo and ending the 2013 Concert in the Park season is Hot Club of Detroit. Far from a traditional gypsy jazz ensemble, Hot Club of Detroit proves itself a versatile modern jazz group, with a unique acoustic-electric sound that surges past expectations and genre boundaries.

As a special treat to concert goers Pop City Popcorn will be selling popcorn and water in Bronson Park.
Concerts in the Park is a program of the Arts Council of Greater Kalamazoo, with support from the Irving S. Gilmore Foundation and the City of Kalamazoo. Additional support provided by WMUK 102.1 and Adams Outdoor Advertising. For more information, visit www.kalamazooarts.org.
