KZUM Presents: 2015 Stransky Park Concert Series

KZUM is proud to again present this summer's free concert series at Lincoln's Stransky Park (17th & Harrison), to run every Thursday from May 14 through July 30!

We're pleased to be growing to 12 concerts in 2015, featuring even more of the best musical talent in our area.

As always, concerts are free, family-friendly events and will run 7-9 p.m. every Thursday throughout the summer. You're encouraged to bring a lawn chair or a blanket to enjoy great entertainment in a beautiful setting.

This marks the second straight year that KZUM has operated the concert series, now in its 12th season overall. Its success has been thanks to the wonderful support of area businesses, willing performers, hospitable neighbors and, most of all, the generous audience members who come to enjoy the music each and every week.

We hope you're able to join us in the park this year! Please remember to tip the band during the set break, as that keeps quality performers wanting to return to the park.

Be sure to like the KZUM Stransky Park Concerts page on Facebook and stay tuned to KZUM and for updates throughout the season.

We'd like to sincerely thank all of the generous local sponsors that are helping to make this season possible:
