Music will definitely be in the air, jumpstarting the summer on the campus of Saint Mary's College with the fourth annual Music on the Lawn concert event in front of the Chapel at 1928 St. Mary's Road. Then the first of nine Thursday night concerts in the Summer Concert Series offered by the Moraga Park Foundation will open on June 21 at the Moraga Commons Park.
The Saint Mary's event was started four years ago and features prominent musicians including some college alumni. The Music on the Lawn event will start at 6 p.m. June 15 with the group 3:30 Friday (this is the band name, not the time of the performance) featuring Courtney Lohmann and Daniel Lewis, both SMC graduates. The headliner is the group Pride and Joy, featuring SMC alumnus Kirby Coleman. Families are invited to come, bring a blanket and be ready for dinner on the lawn. The tickets include access to Damian's famous taco buffet, soft drinks and entertainment. Beer and wine are available for purchase with cash only. Tickets are $20 in advance, $25 at the door, $10 child ticket, (tickets at the door will be cash only). For information, visit www.stmarys-ca.edu/4th-annual-music-on-the-lawn.
The traditional Moraga Thursday night summer concerts at the Moraga Commons Park will start on June 21 with the band 3 Day Weekend playing classic rock music. The concerts are free and there again families are invited to bring a picnic blanket or lawn chairs to the grassy hillside in front of the band shell. Moraga Park Foundation volunteers will cook dinner available for purchase at the park. The bar opens at 6 p.m. and the concerts run from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
