JOHNSTOWN — The Johnstown Midsummer Concert Series is slated to begin Thursday featuring Becca Frame & the Tall Boys at the Charles Jenner Memorial Bandshell in the park on West Main Street.
The concert begins at 7 p.m. and the following concerts in the series will take place on consecutive Thursdays. In the event of rain, shows will be held inside St. John’s Episcopal Church adjacent to the park.
Since its inception in 2018, the free concert series has been presented by the Johnstown Citizens Band, but this year it’s managed by Johnstown Arts & Music Inc., a new nonprofit organization.
Attendees are asked to be mindful of public health guidelines and those who are not vaccinated should plan to wear masks, especially in the event of an indoor performance. For outdoor performances, attendees are encouraged to bring lawn chairs or blankets.
Here’s a look at the series lineup:
Thursday: Becca Frame & The Tall Boys, a soulful rock group from the northern Catskills. Local acoustic guitarist/composer Dominic Orlando will open.
