World Music Concert Series 2018

World Music Concert Series 2018

FREE (Donations Accepted)RAIN OR SHINE
June 28–July 26 | Thursdays, 7:00-9:00 p.m.

AAC is excited to announce our 2nd Annual World Music Concert Series! Once again we are partnering with Andrew Frankel and Toyin Ajayi-Frankel, owners of Philadelphia’s Lucky Goat Coffee House, to bring World Music to the Philadelphia region. This summer we will be host to award-winning performers from around the globe as we bring you four free outdoor concerts.

The concert series will run from mid-June through the end of July on Thursday evenings on our beautiful back lawn and amphitheater. The event is open and free to the public and guests are encouraged to come early and picnic on the lawn. Guests can bring their own food or enjoy selections from an on-site food truck and beverages from our sponsored Beer Garden in the Pavilion.

Music has always had the power to bring communities together and cross the boundaries of geography, economics, religion and culture. Pitch and beat connect to the emotions, creating a direct line to the human ability to respond, understand and have compassion. This is what is great – when an audience is transported by sound to a greater sense of our potential.

This summer the party will be at Abington Art Center!


Help Us Bring The World To Abington

Our World Music Concert Series is again set to bring a culturally diverse audience from across the Philadelphia region to sit out on our back lawn and enjoy the music. Yet, Abington Art Center, though a lively cultural arts organization, still faces the daunting financial challenges of non-profit institutions across the Philadelphia region.

Only with your support can we bring musicians from around the world to AAC.
