Livonia’s outdoor summer concert series 7-9 p.m. Thursday
Livonia City Hall at Five Mile and Farmington roads.

The concerts, sponsored by the Livonia Parks and Recreation and the Livonia Arts Commission, are free for the public to attend. They continue 7-9 p.m. every Thursday through Aug. 29.

With the exception of Aug. 22, all concerts will be held outdoors at Livonia City Hall. The Livonia Symphony Orchestra will play Aug. 22 in the Livonia Community Recreation Center gym.

Chris Swish, arts commission liaison, said the concerts will feature an extra half hour of music this year. All of the groups, except the Earth Angels dance group and the symphony, are new this year or have not played as a part of Music from the Heart in several years.

An arts commission committee selects the groups each February. “Every year they try to get something for everybody,” she said, adding the genre ranges from rock and roll to swing music to the classics.

In the case of inclement weather, check the city’s web site, www.ci.livonia.mi.us, to see if the concert has been canceled.
