#musicmoves Another wonderful #levittamp music show at the #californiacenterforthearts in escondido. Down with the crowd here is brass band La Patronal (@lapatronal). The Opener was another bunch of sassy brasses, Euphoria. These Grape Day Park concerts are a great Escondido thing. The world needs MORE LIVE MUSIC of all kinds.

Thank you for making the Levitt AMP Music Series so memorable this year! We’re already looking forward to 2018 and seeing more of your #musicmoves.
This summer, Levitteers across the country have captured the excitement of free Levitt concerts with #musicmoves, like this couple from Levitt AMP Carson City (dancing like nobody’s watching!). We love seeing the way #musicmoves you and your communities!
Although the summer is coming to a close, free concerts are still going strong at the permanent Levitt venues in Arlington, Bethlehem, Denver, Memphis, Los Angeles, and Pasadena; as well as the Levitt AMP sites in Berea, Carson City, Chattanooga, Hattiesburg, Middlesboro, St. Johnsbury, Trenton and Utica. If you’re in one of these towns or cities, you’re in luck! There’s still plenty of time to show off your #musicmoves! All you have to do is use the hashtag on your Instagram or Twitter with an accompanying photo showing how music moves you, and you’ll be entered to win a $100 iTunes gift card. You can also see your photo and caption on our national live feed! So what are you waiting for? Let’s see those #musicmoves!
The Levitt AMP Music Series has officially kicked off! Whether it’s classic, down-home blues, big band cumbia, singer-songwriter folk or electro-funk, the 2017 Levitt Amp Music Series has a culturally diverse range of genres featuring emerging and established talent.
With Levitt AMP concerts having begun in Denison and Santa Fe, and just around the corner for the 13 other AMP towns and cities, enjoy this specially curated Spotify playlist of Levitt AMP artists taking the stage this summer and fall! You’ll hear something from each town and city – the vintage roots music of Guitar Shorty, the frenetic rockabilly of The Trip Daddys and the hit ballad “If You Don’t Know Me By Now” by Harold Melvin’s Blue Notes, among many more. Here’s to a great season of free music under the stars!

From last spring until this fall, we loved the #musicmoves you shared with us from Levitt lawns across the country! Levitteers filled our #musicmoves live feed with photos and videos capturing the excitement at hundreds of free Levitt shows throughout the 2016 concert season. Watch our #musicmoves highlights video, and below, check out this year’s #musicmoves contest winners who won iTunes gift cards for showing us their moves! Continue reading →
What genre of music gets you showing off some moves? For the folks at Levitt AMP Greensboro’s second concert of its series, it was salsa played by Latin dance band Bio Ritmo! Check out this North Carolina city’s #musicmoves in the video below! Continue reading →
The 2015 Levitt concert season has finally come to a close, which means that our first-ever #musicmoves campaign has reached its end!
A hearty congrats to our fifth and final $100 iTunes gift card winner, Nick Timmerman from Denison, Texas, who posted this sweet photo of him and his fiancée celebrating their new engagement at the Levitt AMP Denison Music Series. Thanks for sharing your special night with us, and best wishes to you both as you enter this new and exciting chapter!
And thanks to all the Levitteers across the country who’ve reminded us just how many ways #musicmoves Levitt audiences—from picnicking, to singing, to dancing on the lawn. We’ve had so much fun seeing all the ways the power of free, live music moves you and your communities, we thought we’d share the joy—check out this video featuring some of our favorite submissions!
If you didn’t get a chance to enjoy the way music moved our 2015 #musicmoves winners, take a peek at the slide show below. Keep moving, and we’ll see you next season!
The movement is strong with these youngters! @levittcleveland, thanks for sharing this fun pic of the Delta Arts Alliance School of Dance doing what they do best! The final show of the 2015 Levitt AMP Cleveland Music Series kicked off with lively performances by Danza Locke’s Hip-Hop I and Hip-Hop II classes—their first of the 2015-16 season.
So many of the 2015 Levitt AMP grantees have gone above and beyond a 10-artist lineup, and used their stages as platforms to showcase local talent prior to Levitt AMP headlining acts. This is a perfect example of the way thoughtful programming can transform a space into a hub for community life. Although the 2015 Levitt AMP Music Series is coming to a close, we hope the music continues to move you and your communities!
There’s only one week left to share your Levitt concert pics on Twitter and Instagram with #musicmoves for your chance to win a $100 iTunes gift card—image submissions will be accepted through October 31! See the #musicmoves September winner.
Music was definitely moving the Cville Sabroso Festival dancers last month during Charlottesville’s Latin American Arts Festival! Thanks @richtarbell for capturing the color and energy of the festival in this great shot. Cville Sabroso—Charlottesville’s annual celebration of National Hispanic Heritage Month—brought live folkloric, traditional and fusion music, dance and visual/performance art to the IX Art Park lawn and Levitt AMP Charlottesville stage. Levitt AMP audiences were treated to festive music by 10-piece Latin jazz/salsa band Conjunto Sason, Norteño group Agave and opening Mexilachian duo Lua.
