Concerts on the Lawn Share Summer Sounds in TC
The 2022 Concerts on the Lawn music series is offered by Grand Traverse Pavilions as part of its ongoing “music therapy” programming for the 300+ elderly residents that call the Pavilions home. As the only municipal skilled nursing facility in Grand Traverse County, there is a commitment to community engagement, and the opportunity to invite the local community and guests to a free outdoor weekly summer concert series provides a multi-generational cultural experience for all involved. The Pavilions is a non-profit elder care provider, and the concert series is required to operate self-sufficiently through sponsorships, grant support, and donations. The 2022 series started on July 7, 2022 and ran through August 25, 2022, offering performances from all northern Michigan performers, and utilizing local support for sound services. Each weekly concert draws approximately 2000 guests who bring their own seating to enjoy the outdoor performances on the Pavilions “Grand Lawn” with the artist performing under the Pavilions gazebo. The Concerts on the Lawn have become a cherished community offering, and an annual expectation for our elderly residents and their families who look forward to… and enjoy the events immensely.
