LVCF Helps Support ArtsQuest’s 2018 Levitt Pavilion Summer Concert Series
Series features over 50 free concerts for the community at SteelStacks from May to September
Bethlehem, Pa., April 30, 2018—The Lehigh Valley Community Foundation (LVCF) is a sponsor of the 2018 ArtsQuest’s Levitt Pavilion Summer Concert Series. The series, which kicks off with a preview weekend May 18-19 and runs through Sept. 8, features more than 50 free shows at the Levitt Pavilion, located at the base of the iconic Bethlehem Steel blast furnaces on the city’s SouthSide.
The Community Foundation is a sponsor for the Atlanta Rhythm Section concert. A LVCF representative will welcome the crowd and introduce the band on Saturday, May 26 at 7:30 p.m. The Atlanta Rhythm Section has been part of a southern rock scene for more than 30 years. The band is best known for hits like “So Into You,” “Champagne Jam,” “Imaginary Lover” and “Spooky.” During their career, the band has recorded 15 albums of original material, delighting audiences from coast to coast with its unique sound.
“Since its opening in 2011, more than 433,000 people have enjoyed 325 free concerts at the Levitt Pavilion at SteelStacks,” says Levitt Pavilion Executive Director Julie Benjamin. “This is a community music venue in every sense, from the support of Coordinated Health and local sponsors and donors, to the many volunteers who donate time and talent so others have a great experience at these shows.”
“We thank all of our donors, sponsors and partners, including the City of Bethlehem, Bethlehem Redevelopment Authority, Bethlehem Area School District and County of Northampton, for helping to make this community music venue possible,” Benjamin said.
In addition to Coordinated Health, the region’s only specialized hospital and health network, sponsors at the Levitt Pavilion include PPL Corporation, Beck Packaging, Provident Bank, People First Federal Credit Union, Aesthetic Surgery Associates, PSECU, Embassy Bank, QNB Bank, Fellowship Community, Christmas City Veterinary Hospital, BB&T Bank, Lehigh Valley Community Foundation, Gross McGinley, LLP and Chevy 21, the official auto partner of the Levitt Pavilion. Funding for the series is also provided by the Mortimer & Mimi Levitt Foundation.
