Summer Concert Series Comes to Orchard Beach in the Bronx
Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. kicked off summer with the launch of the Bronx Summer Concert Series at Orchard Beach.
Throughout the summer, as part of the series, Diaz will host concerts each Sunday, from July through August, at Orchard Beach — The Bronx Riviera — featuring a wide-variety of artists, including local solo artists and dance teams.
“The Bronx has been nurturing ground for the development of a lot of types of musical genres, and we want to keep that musical tradition alive,” said Diaz. “Whether it’s Hip Hop or Salsa, music is as much a part of our identity as Yankee Stadium or the Bronx Zoo. Our concert series helps add to that longstanding legacy of great music that comes out of our borough.”
