2015 Toni Saylor Summer Concert Series

2015 Toni Saylor Summer Concert Series


The rising temperatures mean summer is on its way and with it comes one of M-BC Parks & Recreation’s annual traditions – the Toni Saylor Summer Concert Series in War Memorial Park.    Held within War Memorial Park, off of Tennessee Avenue in Martinsburg at the main stage area of the park, the concert series is a long-standing and much anticipated tradition for our community.  Each Thursday evening throughout the summer, you will be able to enjoy bands ranging from local performers and from neighboring states, as well as those representing the U.S. Armed Forces, playing a variety of music such as bluegrass, big band, jazz, country, pop, classic rock and more!

The concert series was renamed in 2013 to the ‘Toni Saylor Summer Concert Series’ after Ms. Toni Saylor, who held the concerts in the park close to her heart.  She was an employee at M-BC Parks & Recreation and the coordinator of the series for six years prior to her passing in September 2012 after a long battle with cancer.  We saw the renaming as a fitting honor for a young woman who dedicated making the series successful and enjoyable for all that attended. We have proudly continued on with that goal in her memory.

This year, the series will run Thursday, June 4th – Thursday, August 13th at 7:00PM, rain or shine.  When the sun is out, seating is available on the bleachers or you can bring a lawn chair or blanket and find a spot on the grassy areas to enjoy the music. Who knows? You may even get up and dance a little!  If we encounter a passing rain shower, we have a covered pavilion to keep you dry allowing you to still have an evening of great music.  As always, the event is FREE and open for all to attend.  The full performance schedule is listed below, however, you can also find a copy along with information about this and other events, programs, leagues and activities at M-BC Parks & Recreation by visiting our website atwww.mbcparks-rec.org or contacting our administrative office at 304-264-4842.
