SoBo Summer Music Series

The Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts (BOPA) in partnership with Youth Resiliency Institute, Baltimore City Recreation and Parks, Catholic Charities, and the South Baltimore Gateway Partnership presents the SoBo Summer Music Series. The SoBo Summer Music Series is a sequence of free concerts at various locations throughout South Baltimore featuring contemporary jazz and R&B. The series aims to activate greenspaces and community gathering locations in less frequented neighborhoods, with a particular focus on Cherry Hill, Westport, Lakeland, Sharp Leadenhall and Carroll Park neighborhoods.  

South Baltimore is the entrance point for most visitors to the city, coming in off I-95 from the south, and home to some of the city's major attractions: Fort McHenry, Oriole Park at Camden Yards and M&T Bank Stadium. Those who dig a little further into South Baltimore will find a vibrant dining and nightlife scene, as well as venerable, but less visited neighborhoods that define what it is to be “authentic” Baltimore.

A full schedule of all events included in the SoBo Summer Music Series is below. Most events are produced specifically for the series, while others are existing events with a music component, such as the farmers’ market at the Baltimore Museum of Industry and the Federal Hill Jazz Festival. In addition to the concerts, some events have pre-show activities such as music workshops, which are also listed below. 

2019 events to be announced.
