“We are so excited to be welcoming our community back on the lawn this year for free, live music,” said Anne Sturm, Sr. Talent Buyer and Executive Director of the Levitt Pavilion. “Our mission of bringing people together through music and arts remains our primary focus and is important now more than ever. Celebrating diversity, access and inclusion are core to the mission of Levitt and we are committed to remaining a welcoming open space for all people to unite through the universal language of music.”
“Levitt is more than a place to see great live music,” said Mario Galante, Chair of the Levitt Pavilion SteelStacks Board of Directors. “It is a diverse community of people from all around the Lehigh Valley who share a love of music, a passion for life and a commitment to community.
“We are working to fulfill our mission, but we need our community’s support, “Galante said. “Join us on the lawn and if you’re able, please donate whatever amount you can to keep the fires of the Levitt Pavilion burning bright for many years to come.
