City of Annapolis’ Art in Public Places Concerts Wrap Up
Summer Season with Salsa Dancing at Market Space
Annapolis, MD (September 13, 2019) – The City of Annapolis’ Art in Public Places Commission (AIPPC) will wrap up a successful summer of music and entertainment and the conclusion of the Summer Concert Series 2019 with these final events:
- Tango on September 13 (6 p.m.) at City Dock
- Naptown Brass Band on September 15 (6 p.m.) at City Dock,
- Bayside Big Band on September 22 (6 p.m.) at City Dock,
- Community Country Dance at Pip Moyer Recreation Center on September 28 (5 p.m.), and
- Salsa Dancing on September 29 (6 p.m.) at Market Space (please note change in venue).
The series of events kicked off on May 10 with City Dock Tango. Throughout the summer months, musicians from around the region brought live music in the form of jazz, big band, country, bluegrass, swing, rock, steel drum, praise, chorale, Americana, blues and more to residents and visitors. Salsa and Tango dancing lessons preceded the dancing with live music events.
The free concerts at Susan Campbell Park are part of a growing tradition of public concerts hosted by the City of Annapolis and coordinated by the Art in Public Places Commission (AIPPC).
“The commission did a fantastic job of organizing these events and making live music available to the whole community,” said Annapolis Mayor Gavin Buckley. “I’m a little sad it is coming to an end for the season because I love seeing people enjoying the weather and supporting the local arts scene.”
The fun won’t end with the Summer Concert Series wrapping up, according to Cynthia Krewson, chair of AIPPC. She noted that Salsa dancing and music program will move to the City’s Roger “Pip” Moyer Recreation Center for two final events to close out the 2019 season. They are:
- Salsa dancing on October 27 at 6:30 p.m.
- Salsa dancing on November 24 at 6:30 p.m.
All AIPPC Summer Concert Series events are designed to be diverse, multicultural events for people all ages.
“We can’t wait to see them back next summer!” said Ward One Alderwoman Eleanor Tierney.
