The Town of Vienna’s summer concert series will still happen — just not at the Town Green.
Audiences for “Summer on the Green” will instead watch the concerts via Facebook Live or at local businesses at 6:30 p.m. on Fridays.
The town announced on its website that the changes are due to safety concerns with COVID-19.
People will be able to make song requests and play trivia and virtual bingo to win prizes, according to the town. “If you miss the live shows, you can watch later on Facebook or on Youtube,” the website says.
Here’s the line-up:
- July 10: The Sarah Bennett Swanner Band
- July 17: Richard Walton Group
- July 24: Karl Stoll and the Danger Zone
- July 31: TBA
- Aug. 7: Big Bad JuJu
- Aug. 14: The Hot Lanes Trio with Bobby Jasinski
The town and the Rotary Club of Vienna, along with other sponsors, host the series of free performances.
The Vienna Business Association is encouraging businesses to sign up to stream the concerts.
