For 35 years, Community Arts Program in Coral Gables has hosted a Summer Concert Series at Coral Gables Congregational Church, entertaining more than 69,000 people. But in the midst of the pandemic, the organization is taking the series online with a Who’s Who of musicians.
“We’re very excited to again present a line-up of incredible artists,” says Mark Hart, Executive and Artistic Director of the Community Arts Program. “Though we’ll miss welcoming concert-goers within the beauty of CAP’s home at the historic Coral Gables Congregational Church, we’re thrilled to virtually reach an even broader audience across all of Florida and the world!”
Donations will be accepted for the free concerts, which take place every Thursday, July 9-Aug. 13, at 7:30 p.m. The concerts can be viewed at CAP’s website and Facebook page. Check out the line-up below.
