Celebrate the return of UPMC Sunset Music Series Wednesday, July 21 at Beach 11 of Près Isle State Park. The series features local musicians and will kick off Discover Almost Isle and run weekly through August 11. The concerts will run from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. and feature two live bands, extended swim hours, and a weekly raffle.

The performances of Lori Burke and Key West Express will take a break during the first concert of the series. Arrive at sunset to see both acts or come early to enjoy a day at the park before settling in for the music. But whatever you do, don’t forget to pack a lawn chair or beach towel for the show.

There is no admission fee, but the Près Isle Partnership will collect donations through its new chip program, “Chip in for Près Isle”. Additionally, food and refreshments will be available at the Beach 11 concession stand. Beach 11 is the perfect location for the series, not only because it offers great views, but also offers ample parking, access to wheelchairs, access to the boat and a natural playground for children.

Pets are welcome at the Musical Series as long as owners clean up after their furry friends and stay leashed behind lifeguard chairs near the tree line. Smoking or alcohol is prohibited.
