WQLN Sounds Around Town

SOUNDS AROUND TOWN

WQLN’s Sounds Around Town series of free concerts and TV & radio broadcasts, launched in 2014, will return with four free Friday evening concerts, July 9 to July 30, outdoors at WQLN, 8425 Peach St., Erie, (indoors in case of inclement weather), featuring all local bands.

Each year, music lovers of all ages enjoy WQLN's Sounds Around Town free concerts in the picturesque setting of WQLN's wooded pavilion. The public is once again invited and encouraged to bring their picnic blankets and festival chairs for four family-friendly evenings of local entertainment.

As an added bonus, you'll get a peek at the behind-the-scenes operation of WQLN PBS NPR production. We'll record the concerts live and air them on WQLN PBS on Thursday nights this summer and on WQLN NPR throughout the coming year.

Showtime for each 60- to 90-minute concert is 7:30pm
WQLN PBS NPR production will begin at 6:00pm, and guests are invited to come early.

Cost: FREE
