Download Flyer
The eight-week concert series takes place each Thursday at 8 p.m., beginning June 1 through July 20, in the Murphy Park Amphitheater, located at 58th and Glenn drives. Music lovers of all ages will be entertained by this community band of approximately 100 musicians with its inspiring renditions of marches, polkas, movie medleys and other worldly tunes.

The Glendale Summer Band is the longest- running community band in Arizona. The ages of the volunteer band members span several generations. The band was formed in 1966, originally playing at O’Neil Park, and moving to Murphy Park when the amphitheater was built.

These free concerts are the perfect night out for the entire family, or bring your friends, neighbors, the whole gang! Bring lawn chairs or blankets for seating. Snacks and refreshments will be available for purchase at the concerts.
