Kingsborough Concerts Start This Weekend

This weekend the Kingsborough Community College Performing Arts Center will be presenting its annual outdoor summer concert series, also known as HOT SUMMER NIGHTS!

Tomorrow, Saturday, July 3, 2010 at 8 p.m., Patriotic Pops, a Brooklyn community wind and ensemble concert band, will be welcoming our nation’s Independence Day.

Below is a list of the upcoming concerts and performances scheduled. For those of you who have never made it to any of these concerts, you are missing out on something rare and wonderful. Gentle summer breezes, great music, seating near the water, free parking or just take public transportation, all at no cost to you. As an added bonus, in case of rain, the concert moves indoors to the theater. That’s a guaranteed evening of summer fun.
