History of the Concerts


The Series began in 2002 when North Park resident, Nellie Harris, had the innovative idea of holding free community concerts in the newly designed area of Morley Field … Bird Park. She met with members of the North Park Community Association and residents living along the Park, creating two concerts that first summer. The NPCA continues to produce the now five concert series with the help of generous donations and sponsorships from residents and local businesses.
