The annual summer Starlight Concert Series is set for the 2014 season. All concerts begin at 6:30 p.m. (except for the two special Saturday shows — see below) and will take place on the south side of Heman Park (Midland/Shaftsbury entrance). The concerts are free and open to the public. The Starlight Concert Series is sponsored by the Municipal Commission on Arts and Letters of University City (MCALUC) and the City of University City.
Traditionally, concerts are only on Monday evenings, but this year the MCALUC is introducing a new Saturday Concert Series on June 28 from 3 to 8 p.m. and July 19 from 4 to 8 p.m.
