GALVA, Illinois—April 2, 2020—Grab some lawn chairs and get ready for a summer full of music in Galva. The Galva Arts Council is excited to announce a very talented lineup for the third annual Levitt AMP Galva Music Series presented by Regional Media. Held at Wiley Park in Galva, these Sunday concerts are an opportunity for community members of all ages to enjoy free live music in a picnic-style setting. In years past this series has run 10 weeks; however, in 2020 two additional concerts have been added for a total of 12 weeks of free live music. These concerts activate an under-used public space and turn it into a vibrant meeting place. Food and beverages will be available for purchase during concerts. Admission to the concerts is free and attendees are encouraged to invite friends, family, and neighbors for an opportunity to meet new friends and celebrate the summer season. The Levitt AMP Galva Music Series is one part of a larger network of live music events which is quickly making Henry County a destination for experiencing family-friendly live music.
