The Hoffman Estates Arts Commission and the Hoffman Estates Park District are pleased to present the 21st season of “Summer Sounds on the Green” at the Virginia Mary Hayter Village Green, beginning Thursday, June 15 at 7 p.m.
Named for the past Village Clerk who invited residents to a concert at the terraced outdoor music facility in 1996, the Village Green has hosted hundreds of musical, dance, and theatrical performances. Each year, the Hoffman Estates Arts Commission arranges for eight featured musical acts to perform free summer concerts on Thursday evenings.
The first of 2017’s “Summer Sounds on the Green” concerts the evening of June 15 will feature baritone Wayne Messmer, best known for performing the National Anthem at stadiums across Chicagoland. Messmer will perform a selection of music from the “Great American Songbook,” including jazz standards and popular tunes to sing along with.
The Virginia Mary Hayter Village Green is located at 5510 Prairie Stone Parkway, across the street from the Sears Centre Arena in the Poplar Creek at 59/90 “Entertainment District.”
Admission is free. Bring a blanket or a lawn chair to the amphitheater. Picnics are welcome!
