Morgan Park Summer Music Festival (MPSMF) will mark the third event on Aug. 15, with a performance from David Cedeno & His Orchestra, of its return to the park following the cancellation of last year’s season due to COVID restrictions.

MPSMF is a not-for-profit organization governed by all-volunteer executive and advisory committees that program, administer and raise all funds for the summer concert series through tax-deductible contributions. No taxpayer funding is requested or used.
Morgan Memorial Park is located in Glen Cove on Germaine Street between Landing Road and McLoughlin Street. The public is welcome to attend the concerts and picnic on the lawns.
