UTICA, N.Y. – Utica’s annual Levitt AMP Music Series will be postponed until 2021 due to state restriction still in place on public gatherings.
The committee made the announcement on Thursday.
“While it’s unfortunate the Levitt AMP Concert Series will be postponed until next year, I believe it is the right decision and promotes public health and safety. I am pleased and thankful to The Levitt Foundation for guaranteeing funding for Utica’s Concert Series in 2021 as these events provide a great quality of life asset for our community,” said Utica Mayor Robert Palmieri.
The concert series, which takes place in Kopernik Park, is made possible in part through grant funding. The Mortimer and Mimi Levitt Foundation has assured that the $25,000 grant awarded to Utica will be rolled over to 2021 to help support the event.
The committee is working with the Levitt Foundation to organize a 10-week virtual music series in place of the live events. The local organizers are also considering applying for a new Bridge Grant from the foundation that would be used to bring people together through music, but in alternative ways.
