The Kent County Salvation Army is putting on the second performance in its new Red Shield Summer Concert Series.
The concert is free to the public and will take place at 7 p.m. Wednesday, June 22, at the Salvation Army Kroc Center’s outdoor amphitheater, at 2500 S. Division Ave. in Grand Rapids.
The concert will be preceded by a free grilled dinner from the Salvation Army’s mobile kitchen at 6 p.m. The meal will be provided to the first 200 attendees.
This week’s Red Shield concert is themed “Celebrating Patriotism” and will honor veterans with a red, white and blue-themed evening of entertainment. Lansing musician Steve Spees will headline the concert with saxophone selections, including patriotic, smooth jazz, blues, easy listening, country, classic rock and reggae genres.
“We invite everyone in our Grand Rapids community to join us on Wednesday the 22nd,” said Divisional Commander Maj. Glen Caddy.
Parking for this event is free at the Kroc Center. Attendees are encouraged to bring chairs or blankets for seating.
The next concert in the Red Shield summer series will take place on Aug. 17 and will feature music by young West Michigan musicians, as well as entertainment by Barbara Jean, ventriloquist and Miss Michigan 1984.
