The 2017 season of the University City Summer will begin its 21st season on Tuesday June 13.
Concerts will be held at our new venue in Heman Park, 1028 Midland Blvd, University City, MO 63130 (park entrance is off Midland, opposite Shaftesbury). All concerts start at 7 PM, last about 80 minutes, and include a short intermission.
PLEASE NOTE: The Heman Park area has easy parking and is well shaded by huge trees, and there is a nice breeze, even on a hot day. There will be plenty of benches for seating, but you are encouraged to bring your own lawn chair, blanket, and picnic. Bring your sunglasses, and your children, too! These are family-friendly concerts. A concession stand will be available.
"...exactly what a community band ought to be..."
audience comment during the 2004 season
"It was terrific to get to hear such a fine band, and so close to our house. I loved how the balance was great, the blend was lovely, and you got them to play dynamics(!)."
comment during the 2011 season, by Thomas Jostlein, Associate Principal French Horn, St. Louis Symphony, from the 2011 season
