Mostly Music in the Park: the 2012 Lineup

Mostly Music in the Park is an island summer concert series coordinated by the Mercer Island Arts Council for the months of July and August. The free concerts are held two times a week, right in the Downtown Neighborhood’s own Mercerdale Park.

Windermere Mercer Island has been a proud sponsor of Mostly Music in the Park for the past 14 years. Recently, the 2012 line up was announced and we are really excited for this concert series. There’s going to be quite a variety of music styles represented. Below is the line up– including dates, band descriptions and links to their websites. All concerts are scheduled for 7pm to 8:30pm.

Plan to attend a concert or two. Pack a picnic dinner, and bring your family, or a few friends, for an evening of fun that’s on the house!
