University City has brought back two favorite summer events: the Baltimore Avenue Dollar Stroll and the 40th Summer Series.
The Summer Series brings internationally acclaimed musicians to University City to play free outdoor concerts at 40th and Walnut Streets (behind the Walnut West Free Library). The series kicks off on Saturday, July 28, at 6 pm, with performances by Sun Ra Arkestra. Drawing on the work of Duke Ellington and Fletcher Henderson, the Arkestra are pioneers of the bop-derived avant-garde and collective improvisation.
And there’s still time to take advantage of University City Dining Days, which run through Thursday, July 26.
