MARYSVILLE – Marysville Parks and Recreation and exclusive sponsor Waste Management NW are proud to present the 2011 Sounds of Summer Concert Series lineup of five free Friday night outdoor performances kicking off July 8.

Concerts will be 7 p.m. Fridays from July 8 to Aug. 5 in Jennings Memorial Park’s Lions Centennial Pavilion, 6915 Armar Road. The “mini-gorge” natural amphitheater in Jennings Park provides the perfect acoustical venue to hear some of the Pacific Northwest’s hottest musical acts.
