2010 Woburn Summer Concert Series Wraps-Up With The Mood Elevators

The Mood ElevatorsThe 2010 Woburn Summer Concert Series concludes this Friday, August 20th, with a free concert featuring The Mood Elevators.  This final concert, sponsored by Stoneham Bank, will take place from 7-9 p.m. at Horn Pond, along the flat grassy area of Sturgis St., otherwise known as Ice House Park.
 
Get "in the Mood" with The Mood Elevators! Three strong solo artists blend in tight vocal harmony to perform a combination of standard and original arrangements that breathe new life into some of the best-loved standards of the Swing Era, putting a fresh face on nostalgia with a fun, upbeat performance style. Our repertoire includes dance-floor favorites from the 1930s and 1940s as well as obscure gems from the early decades of the 20th Century, and we've performed with some of the best musicians in the Boston area. Sweet and sentimental or rousing and raucous, "The Stuff Is Here!"  Go to www.moodelevators.com for more information.

Bring your family, friends and lawn chairs to Ice House Park to enjoy this free concert.  With generous support from local businesses, the Concert Series is free to the public.  If rain is expected, the alternate (indoor) venue will be the gym at the North Suburban YMCA, located at 137 Lexington St. in Woburn.

The Woburn Summer Concert Series is coordinated by Social Capital Inc. (SCI), North Suburban Y, Woburn Residents’ Environmental Network (WREN), and the Woburn Redevelopment Authority.  A special thank you goes out to Tucker Quinn and the Woburn DPW for their logistical assistance.
