If the genre of music being played at one of the Music on Main or Concerts in the Park series isn’t quite to your liking, Verona Area Chamber of Commerce executive director Le Jordan said all you have to do is wait for the next one.

Both concert series will feature “a little bit of everything” throughout the summer, she said.

The Chamber began Music on Main two years ago when construction consumed much of the downtown – Chamber staff wanted residents to know Main Street businesses were still open – and have taken over the booking of performers from the city’s Parks Department for Concerts in the Park.

The city will still run the event, Jordan said.

Music on Main is held from 5-8 p.m. every other Friday, starting June 14 and ending Aug. 9, at Hometown Junction Park, 101 W. Railroad St. Concerts in the Park, held from 6-8 p.m. Thursdays in July, will be located at Harriett Park.

The only Thursday in July that won’t feature a concert is the 4th of July.

The Music on Main concerts usually feature smaller acts for a more intimate experience, Jordan said, while the Concerts in the Park series tends to bring in larger bands.
