Staff Report:

The Summer Concert Series is presented free of charge to the public by the County of Los Alamos and a variety of businesses, professionals and neighbors of the community.

The Series is coordinated and managed by Russ Gordon of Gordons’ Concerts of Los Alamos. This series of Friday evening concerts-in-the-park spans the summer from late May into early September and is held at various locations around the county.

Each year thousands of residents and visitors take advantage of the beautiful park venues, pulling up lawn chairs and enjoying an eclectic variety of talent from rock to blues, jazz, country, Latin, Americana, African and World rhythms and more, including Russian Rokenroll.
