Union County Kicks Off Free Outdoor Summer Concert Series — Indoors — with the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra, June 21

Union County, NJ – Union County is launching its free summer concert series this Friday, June 21, with a special performance by the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra beginning at 7:30 p.m. at the Scotch Plains-Fanwood High School auditorium, at 667 Westfield Road in Scotch Plains.

The concert was initially planned as an outdoor event at Union County’s Echo Lake Park. It has been moved indoors due to saturated conditions at the park, following a long period of rainy weather.

The event is still free of charge and admission is on a walk-in basis. No reservations are necessary. Due to the change in venue, there will be no Get Fit Yoga session preceding the concert.

“In consideration of the musicians, the instruments, and the audience, we have moved the concert to a comfortable indoor venue,” said Freeholder Chair Bette Jane Kowalski. “Come and enjoy this very special event, and help us celebrate the beginning of our summertime schedule of music and movies on Union County parks.”

The regular schedule of free Union County Summer Arts Festival outdoor concerts will be begin at Echo Lake Park on Wednesday nights, July 10, 17, 24, and 31.

In August the series moves to Oak Ridge Park in Clark on Wednesday nights, August 7, 14, 21, and 28.

All Summer Arts shows begin at 7:30 p.m. and include free Union County Get Fit Yoga programs beginning at 6:30 p.m. Yoga participants should wear comfortable clothes and bring a mat.
