Jazzhounds lead off Concerts in Park

Delano’s summer Concerts in the Park series began Wednesday, July 11 with a performance of the Jazzhounds, a 17-piece big band that plays traditional, swing, bebop, contemporary and popular music and more.

The series of six concerts will take place at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesdays at the Delano Central Park gazebo. In the event of inclement weather, concerts will be held in the Delano Middle School auditorium.

The General Federated Women’s Club of Delano and Delano Community Education sponsor these concerts. This activity is made possible by a grant from the Central Minnesota Arts Board, through funding provided by the Minnesota State Legislature. Several local businesses and organizations are providing financial support.

Five concerts will follow the Jazzhounds’ kickoff performance. Here is the schedule:
