The Cooper Foundation of Cooper University Health Care on Thursday, June 20, 2013 will kick off its fourth annual "Summer in the City" concert series with a free evening performance by To The Max at Cooper Commons Park at 6th and Washington streets in Camden, NJ.
This is the first of four free concerts to be held in June and July.
The goal of "Summer in the City" is to help build a sense of community while showcasing the neighborhood parks and positive changes in the Cooper Plaza and Lanning Square neighborhoods.
"The 'Summer in the City' concert series brings the community together to enjoy some great live music and outdoor fun," said Susan Bass Levin, President and CEO of The Cooper Foundation. The free concerts have grown increasingly popular and are a wonderful way to celebrate the revitalization of the Cooper Plaza and Lanning Square neighborhoods.
