Sit in the park, grab a meal from one of the nearby restaurants and enjoy a night of music under the stars. A Sounds of Summer seasonal schedule is usually set by late April.

Thanks to the generous support of local businesses like our concert series sponsor, First Midwest Bank and stage sponsor, Lutheran Home, the Village is able to book concerts with groups such as Trippin' Billies, Chicago Experience, Dixie Crush, Blooze Brothers and Deacon Blues - to name a few who have stepped on our stage through the many years of our popular Sounds of Summer concert series.
