Overview

When museum galleries go dark and the sun goes down in Philadelphia’s Historic District, live jazz, DJ tunes, Latin grooves and even the sweet sounds of a symphony make the district’s parks, plazas and patios come alive.

From Friday, June 1 through Friday, September 7, the Summer Sounds in the Historic District free music series delivers sweet tunes at nearly a dozen locations in Old City, Society Hill and along the Delaware River waterfront.

Produced by VISIT PHILADELPHIA in partnership with Veteran Freshman, the Delaware River Waterfront Corporation, Historic Philadelphia, Inc., Wawa Welcome America and the Philadelphia Jazz Project, nine musical events pop up at more than a dozen different locations in Philadelphia’s Historic District — all for free, all summer long.

Also, listen up for Street Corner Symphonies by the Philadelphia Jazz Project. This five-piece band will do their thing at popular spots throughout the Historic District on select weekdays June through August.
