he popular “Sounds of Lewisville” concert series, a free family favorite since 1991, will present a series of nine shows this year in the heart of historic Old Town Lewisville.
Concerts start at 7 p.m. every Tuesday night in June and July. Attendees are encouraged to bring blankets and lawn chairs for their comfort. Well-behaved pets on a leash are allowed at the shows.
The series will open in the courtyard at Medical Center of Lewisville Grand Theater, 100 N. Charles Street, where the concerts have been held since 2011. When construction is completed on Old Town Park Plaza across the street from the art center, the concerts will move to the permanent stage and grass lawn in the new park.
Concerts are presented by Lewisville Convention and Visitors Bureau with assistance from Parks and Leisure Services and the MCL Grand.
The series kicks off June 3 with Kraig Parker and his Elvis tribute show. Parker was the Peoples Choice winner for the 2013 Sounds series.
Other performers in the Sounds series include returning favorites Brave Combo (June 10) and The Killdares (July 29), along with popular country band Eleven Hundred Springs (July 22) that last played in Lewisville during the 2005 Western Day festival. The season also introduces five groups making their first appearance in Old Town Lewisville.
