This year’s Music Under the Stars – which kicks off Sunday, June 9 – has been condensed to one month but is still packing in the music and family fun.
The popular free music series will be held over the four Sundays in June – much shorter than years past when it ran over eight to 12 weeks. Part of the reason for the shorter season is the closure and razing of Cohen Stadium, which hosted several of the concerts the past few years.
Instead, the concerts will be held only at the Chamizal National Park, officials with the city’s Museums and Cultural Affairs Department announced earlier this year.
“This concert series has become a summertime staple which we are proud to continue as part of the city’s commitment to enhancing El Paso’s quality of life,” Ismael Acosta, MCAD’s production and marketing coordinator, said in a statement.
MCAD produces the shows in partnership with the National Park Service.
