East Boston, Mass. – ZUMIX’s annual outdoor Summer Concert Series returns on Sunday evenings this summer in East Boston’s Piers Park. The series will kick off Sunday, July 11, with ZUMIX’s annual Walk For Music, followed by a performance by local powerhouse band Don’t Be Denied. The concert series will continue until August 25. All concerts will take place from 6-8pm, and each concert will open with talented young musicians from ZUMIX’s youth programs. Additional featured acts include local soul artist Ava Sophia, Dzidzor, and Kotoko Brass.

“I’m most excited for the [East Boston] community to come together in ways it never has before,” said Madeleine Steczynski, co-founder and executive director of ZUMIX. “The space [at Piers Park] is a beautiful space—imagine the park and the waterfront with the sunset as musicians perform for droves of families.” Participants will be encouraged to wear masks and practice social distancing. ZUMIX is excited to showcase the best ensembles from its programs and its East Boston neighborhood, as well as providing opportunities for musicians and sound engineers to use their skills live for the first time in more than a year.

ZUMIX empowers young people to build successful futures for themselves, transforming lives and community through music, technology, and creative enjoyment. ZUMIX is a registered 501C3 non-profit organization that provides top-quality cultural programming as an alternative way for young people to deal with frustration, anger, and fear, and as a method of building cultural understanding and acceptance in one of Boston’s most diverse neighborhoods.
