The FREE 10-concert series, presented by Trenton Downtown Association and the African American Cultural Collaborative of Mercer County, will feature a lineup of local, regional and national artists representing a wide range of musical styles.

The series runs from July 9 – September 17 and kicks off with the Capital Philharmonic of New Jersey, under the baton of its music director, Maestro Daniel Spalding, at Cadwalader Park, on Saturday, July 9. Music by John Williams, John Philip Sousa, and Irving Berlin will dazzle audiences of all ages in Trenton’s 110-acre treasure.

Since 2015, Trenton Downtown Association has presented the Levitt AMP Trenton Music Series, 10 FREE concerts, each summer in Downtown Trenton. Trenton is one of 20 current cities across the country that received a grant from the Levitt Foundation to bring people of all ages and backgrounds together to enjoy live-free music in their communities.
