The Cooper Foundation Kicks Off Third Annual “Summer in the City” Concert Series

The Cooper Foundation kicked off its third annual “Summer in the City” concert series with a free evening performance by “To The Max” at Cooper Commons Park on Thursday, July 5.

This was the first of four concerts to be held throughout the month.

The goal of Summer in the City is to help build a sense of community while showcasing the neighborhood parks and positive changes in the Cooper Plaza and Lanning Square neighborhoods.

“The Summer in the City concert series provides a great opportunity for the community to come together in a relaxed atmosphere to enjoy the neighborhood and have some fun,” said Susan Bass Levin, president and CEO of the Cooper Foundation. “The concerts also give people who work in the city a chance to unwind with their colleagues and offer students a place to enjoy some live music with their friends.”

Co-sponsors of the Summer in the City concert series include the Garden State Discovery Museum, which will offer face painting and bubble fun, and Rita’s Water Ice.
