Summer Music Series Kicks Off in June

"Winston-Salem, NC (May 18, 2015) – The Summer Music Series, one of the highlights of summer in Winston-Salem, returns next month. The events attract crowds of people to the downtown area to enjoy the wide variety of music presented and to sample the many types of food available.

The series, entering its 18th season, is produced by the Downtown Winston-Salem Partnership, with help from local music promoters Jill Martin-Byers (Summer on Trade) and Carl Dennerson (Downtown Jazz). The Downtown Jazz events, presented by Winston-Salem Federal Credit Union, are held every second and fourth Friday from 6 p.m. until 9 p.m. in Corpening Plaza. The first concert will be held June 12 and will feature Jackiem Joyner and Reggie Buie. The Summer on Trade series, presented by Truliant Federal Credit Union, is held on Saturdays in the Downtown Arts District at the intersection of 6th and Trade Streets from 7 p.m. until 10 p.m. The first concert will be held June 20 and will feature Groove 8. (See schedule below for full details.)

The popular series is privately funded by sponsors. “We are so proud to be producing the 18th season of the Summer Music Series for the benefit of the community,” said Jason Thiel, president of the Downtown Winston-Salem Partnership. “It would not be possible without the tremendous support of our sponsors.”
