Freedom Park 2016 concert series lineup

Black Mountain Symphony

Black Mountain Symphony closes out the season in late August.

The schedule for this summer's series of free concerts at Freedom Park in Scotia is out. And, as usual, it's big -- really big -- with multiple concerts each week from late June through late August. And the lineup includes a bunch of different genres.

Freedom Park is on the Mohawk River, just over the Western Gateway Bridge from Schenectady, next to Jumpin' Jack's.

So, without further ado...

All shows start at 7 pm, unless noted. Descriptions via Freedom Park schedule.

I frequently find myself along this trail on Sunday mornings, hungry, & very little is open. There's a lot of talk about special mowers & building bathrooms & that's nice, yes, let's do that, certainly. But *right now* people using this trail are hungry & want to buy food & drink (& use the bathroom, as a paying customer): if the businesses that are already there were OPEN it would go a long way to providing amenities & destinations. ...
