The 13th annual Tosa Tonight summer concert series will offer a little bit of everything including classical, country, rock and blues music.
The free series, taking place from June 12 to Aug. 28, is adding an extra day of music to its six-concert schedule. Shows will start at 6 p.m. at the Rotary Performance Pavilion and will typically run until 9 p.m.
Throughout the series will be an Irish Fest sneak peak Aug. 14 with the bands Sprag Session and We Banjo 3. Trapper Shoepp & The Shades will headline the Yellow Phone Music Conference on July 10, which will feature many bands playing on a rotating lineup.
"I'm always looking to push the series to the next level with the next level of talent and variety," Tosa Tonight Executive Director Rick Bauer said. "We only have six concerts this year. We keep trying to expand the concert a little bit each year as we can. I always go off suggestions and different directions for people to go and we try to incorporate that over the years."
One suggestion was that the series add classical music. Bauer responded by adding the Intermezzo Ensemble. He's also heard suggestions to incorporate a children's variety day and hopes to add it in a future year.
