FREE: Dana Park Concert Series in Albany

July 10th, 2017, 9:00 am by Greg

This summer the free Dana Park Concert Series is taking a different spin as the Lark Street Business Improvement District and the Aurora Foundation of Northeast present an eight-concert series in the tiny pocket park at the corner of Lark Street and Madison Avenue in Albany.

The eighth annual series is focusing on more of a rock sound, as opposed to the more acoustic folk, jazz and Americana that’s been featured in past years. Hosted by Ralph Renna, each concert will feature visual art exhibits, guest speakers and three musical acts.
