Old Economy Village is holding a summer concert series this year. Each concert will feature a local band or singer. The concerts will be free for the public! Please bring your own chairs and blankets. A $5 donation is appreciated! Most of the concerts will take place in the garden.
The Swinging BopCat Big Band is a classic 18-piece big band featuring full sections of sax, trombone, trumpet and rhythm. The BopCats are joined by two vocalists who complete the makeup of the band.
The BopCats typically play the swing music of the 1940′s including charts by well known artists such as Stan Kenton, Glenn Miller, Count Basie and many others. They play a diverse book that covers songs from the 1930′s to present day.
Over the last 15+ years the BopCats have performed for former Governor Tom Ridge at the Three Rivers Regatta, at the Byham Theater in Pittsburgh, the Penn State Concert Series, hangar dances that honor our veterans, several local Independence Day celebrations, the Beaver Valley Musician’s Union Concert In The Park Series, class reunions, and many other community events, retirement homes and extended care facilities.
Concert is rain or shine. Rain location is the Feast Hall.
