About an hour into summer, we have the news music lovers have been awaiting – the lineup for this year’s Summer Concerts at Hiawatha, presented by the Admiral Neighborhood Association, with sponsors including WSB, one month before the start of the six-Thursday-night outdoor-show series. Coordinator Katy Walum says it was “a big challenge to review the work of so many talented artists who applied,” but they had to settle on a half-dozen, and here’s the result:

July 21st: Smokey Brights – video here

The concerts are all free, on the east lawn at Hiawatha Community Center – bring your own chair/blanket/etc. – and start at 6:30 pm.

      I hope they are still playing the Hi-Yu Concert in the Park on a Tuesday in mid-July. A Hi-Yu person said so, anyway…

    West Seattle Big Band will be playing Tuesday, July 19 at the Hi-Yu Concert in the Park at Hiawatha’s East lawn. This will be their 20th year donating their talents to this event. The Concert in the Park is an official Hi-Yu event, and is sanctioned by Seafair. It occurs this year (and next) on the first week of the ANA Music Series because of Seafair Scheduling.

    Awesome that the series includes the Total Experience Gospel Choir!

      I have to check to see if this is still the case, but in recent years we have reported that Kenyon Hall proprietor Lou Magor is their longtime accompanist, so they have an extra West Seattle link. – TR
