The Lakeside Concert Series audience watching the amphitheater by the Furman University lake.

The Lakeside Concert Band and other ensembles and artists celebrate the Sounds of Summer on Thursday evenings at 7:30 pm, now through July 27, 2023.

Relax on the grounds of the spacious amphitheater by the Furman University lake and enjoy a cross-section of Big Band, jazz, bluegrass, contemporary, marches, and orchestral favorites. In case of inclement weather, the concerts will be moved indoors to McAlister Auditorium.

Thanks to generous local sponsors, all concerts are free and open to the public!
