ProMedica cancels 2020 Summer Concert Series

TOLEDO — ProMedica has canceled the 2020 ProMedica Summer Concert Series in response to the coronavirus
pandemic.
This year would have marked the fourth season of the ProMedica Summer Concert Series that transforms
Promenade Park into a concert venue June through September.
“We’re really disappointed about canceling the ProMedica Summer Concert Series, as we expected it to be
our best one yet,” said Tausha Moore, director of public relations at ProMedica. “However, our main
priority is the health and well-being of our community, and the latest information indicates that we’ll
need to continue social distancing into the summer months to help minimize the impact of COVID-19.”
In 2019, ProMedica hosted 12 concerts representing 13 music genres. Almost 90,000 guests attended from 39
different states. Five hundred and sixty-five community members volunteered, and 32 companies sponsored
the series. Fifteen non-profit organizations benefited by receiving a portion of beverage sales.
“We understand how disappointing this announcement may be to the tens of thousands of supporters who look
forward to the concert series every year,” Moore said. “But, because the concerts attract such large
crowds, we believe canceling the series is the socially responsible decision. We’re hoping to bring the
concerts back next summer.”
