Bring your lawn chair or blanket, and get ready for a summer of live music! The Erie Philharmonic is proud to announce its schedule for an unprecedented, free 17-concert tour titled In Your Hometown. From Meadville to North East, and everywhere in between, the music is heading directly to your hometown. Beginning on June 23 and running through September 8, different ensembles, such as a full orchestra family-style concert or a large brass choir, will perform concerts in parks and outdoor venues all free of charge.
The concerts begin at Gibson Park in North East, PA, a special and recurring location throughout this summer. During the summer of 2019, the Philharmonic visited North East for multiple summer concerts, in partnership with Red Letter Hospitality, the North East Community Foundation, and the support of many businesses. These concerts laid the groundwork for the return of four concerts in North East this year, with the summer tour in opening and closing in beautiful Gibson Park.
The Erie Philharmonic created a voting website in the spring where community members could vote and leave suggestions for locations for summer concerts. The locations selected via this voting process include downtown Erie, Fairview, Titusville, Edinboro, Meadville, and more. We are grateful for the community’s help in selecting the myriad of venues we’ll be visiting this summer, many for the first time!
Concerts will be free and open to the public. The safety of musicians and attendees is the orchestra’s biggest priority, so all mandated COVID-safety policies will be in place.
Please see below for concert schedule. All concerts begin at 7pm unless noted.
