Concerts Under the Stars
Tuesdays in July, 2022 | 8pm | UNC Garden Theatre | FREE
UNC's Concerts Under the Stars is a free concert series that welcomes a diverse lineup of musicians to Garden Theatre every Tuesday in July. This Greeley summer tradition is hosted by the UNC School of Music and sponsored in part by the Weld Community Foundation and the Bohemian Foundation.
From the Weld Community Foundation President/CEO,
The mission of Weld Community Foundation is all about our middle name, “Community.” We knew our 25th Anniversary was coming up this year, and what better way to celebrate than to help bring back Concerts Under the Stars? Where else did individuals and whole families show up with lawn chairs, picnic blankets, and brown bag dinners, and mingle together? You would see spontaneous, informal gatherings of friends and neighbors greeting, hugging, in conversation, and then settle into celebration of, sometimes dancing to, delightful music all under our beautiful, warm July skies. It brought community together—the perfect setting for the Foundation to partner with UNC and give a meaningful gift back to the community for its support over the years.
