UTICA – The city of Utica has been awarded $25,000 to put on the Levitt AMP concert series once again.
For the third year in a row, Utica is one of 15 small to mid-sized towns and cities in the U.S. to receive the Levitt AMP Grant Award. The city’s proposal was submitted by Utica Monday Nite.
The free concerts will again take place in Kopernik Park in Utica during the summer.
“Utica Monday Nite will present the third Levitt AMP Utica Music Series in Kopernik Park to fuel the social, physical and financial resurgence of Oneida Square, bringing the refugee-dense neighborhood closer to realizing its potential as a hub for culture and community engagement,” a portion of the news release reads. “The 2018 series will continue to illustrate the value of this underused green space as it inspires people of all backgrounds to come together to create a stronger, more unified community.”
