Applications Open for 2024 Music in the Parks Performers
KINGSTON, NY – Mayor Steven T. Noble, the Department of Arts and Cultural Affairs, and the Parks and Recreation Department are pleased to announce the application is now open for performers for the 2024 Music in the Parks series.
Music in the Parks is the City of Kingston’s free, family-oriented concert series which is held at various Kingston park locations from 6:00-8:30pm on Saturdays during the summer. The venues are outdoors with lawn seating. While preference will be shown to full bands with a minimum of four members, duos and trios will receive consideration. Soundtracks will not be considered. Selected ensembles will receive an honorarium.
“We had wonderful free, family events last year with a great line-up of music and we’re excited to keep this beloved series going into 2024,” said Mayor Noble. “I look forward to seeing a variety of local performers apply.”
Due to a large number of Kingston-based artists interested in performing, an application process has been established. The deadline for submissions is February 29, 2024. The 2024 Music in the Parks performer applications can be found at www.kingston-ny.gov/musicintheparks.
The Music in the Parks 2024 Selection Panel will be conducting reviews in early March. Selected performers will be notified by mid-March. All applicants will receive a response once selections are completed. Applicants not selected will be kept and considered in the event of an opening.
