UTICA – Local music lovers will once again get the chance to attend a series of free concerts in the city of Utica this summer.

The lineup for this year’s Levitt AMP Utica Music Series was announced Monday by Utica Monday Nite and Rust2GreenUtica.

The Levitt AMP Grant Awards were created in 2014 to provide free live music to people of all ages and backgrounds in small to mid-sized cities throughout the U.S. This is the third year that the city of Utica has been a recipient of the grant, which was awarded to 15 different cities.

Concerts will be held each Monday night from June 25 to Aug. 27 in Kopernik Park in Utica. Concerts will be 6-9 p.m., and they are all family-friendly and free to attend. If it rains the evening of a scheduled concert, it will be held inside Munson-Williams-Proctor Arts Institute.
