Jacksonville’s Levitt AMP Music Series introduced our community to 10 up-and-coming musicians or musical groups. “The energetic and eclectic sounds of the 2016 Levitt AMP Music Series are now filling the air, bringing you a fun-filled summer and fall of free concerts that give new life to underused public spaces,” notes www.concerts.levittamp.org. Now that each of the 10 free concerts have been performed, it is really special to look back and recall some of the incredible musical artists who have performed intimate concerts on the downtown square of Jacksonville. It is especially rewarding to have had such an array of musical genres performing for anyone interested. We have many public spaces that go unused; it is worthwhile to make use of these spaces. The downtown square was filled with friends, families, groups, pets and music-lovers interested in taking part of the free concert series in our community. From event sponsors in their VIP tent or a hoard of children wiggling and giggling on the grass in front of the pergola stage … to friends and family in lawn chairs … to those simply standing around the square or passing by, the opportunity to hear live music coming from downtown Jacksonville inspires delight. For those unaware, the website also states, “The Levitt AMP [Jacksonville] Grant Awards is an exciting matching grant program made possible by the Mortimer & Mimi Levitt Foundation, a national private foundation dedicated to strengthening the social fabric of America through the power of free, live music. With Levitt AMP, the joy of free, live music is bringing communities together in small and mid-sized towns and cities across the country.” Let’s take a look back.
