If you haven't noticed already, there are a lot of chances to catch some free music during the summer. 'Tis the season for free outdoor concerts. However, never fear because FreeBurgh will make sure you know all about every last one of them.
The latest free summer concert events come care of the county with the Allegheny County 2015 Summer Concert Series. With the Allegheny Concert Series the emphasis is on 'Concert.' These events aren't only music concerts (though there are no shortages) there are also plays and movie screenings.
First you have the South Park Amphitheater concert series. This series of concerts is jam (jam... get it?) packed with a large variety of musical styles. You'll find everything form Indie Rock to country and whatever is in between. (the full schedule for all these concerts is listed below)
Next you have the Hartwood Acres Park Amphitheater which is a large open space with plenty of musical variety but add some opera and even a ballet.
For those into the Big Band scene there are two performances at the North and South Park Ice Rinks.
Moving away form musical performances is the Movies in the Park series. This series travels to different parks with free screenings of movies.
Lastly is Shakespeare in the Parks. Shakespeare's (you know... only the greatest playwright of all time) "Much adoe about Nothing" will be this year's performance thanks to the The Unrehearsed Shakespeare Project.
