What music doesn't sound best under a canopy of stars on a soft summer evening? Summit City locals (and visitors - that means you!) can look forward to the 2015 Foellinger Theatre Outdoor Concert Series, featuring such favorites as the Doobie Brothers (Wednesday, July 1, 7:30 p.m. - sold out!), the Steve Miller Band (Sunday, July 12, 7:30 p.m.), the Sounds of Touch (Saturday, July 25, 8:00 p.m.), Beach Boys & the Tempations (Saturday, July 25, 8:00 p.m.), the Hit Men (Friday, August 7, 8:00 p.m.), and the Happy Together Tour (Sunday, August 23, 7:30 p.m.).
