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 2015 Levitt concert season has finally come to a close, which means that our first-ever #musicmoves campaign has reached its end! 

October #musicmoves WinnerA 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!

musicmoves_delta arts alliance school of danceThe 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_moves_latin arts festivalMusic 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.

Thanks Ashley Reed, the September winner of our #musicmoves contest, for sharing this photo of the Levitt AMP Trenton Music Series! Last month, downtown Trenton rocked out to a free show by Danielia Cotton, who brought her powerful voice back to her home state of New Jersey for a fun night of community through music.

Here in Los Angeles, we’re looking out our window at some much needed rain. Although rain has a way of putting a damper on many outdoor activities, it sure didn’t stop folks at Levitt Shell from enjoying a fantastic show when the 2015 Levitt National Tour came to town earlier this summer. 

We thought we’d use this #musicmoves post to give a shoutout to Black Violin and all the Levitteers who came out for the Levitt National Tour, which stopped in six Levitt locations across the country. Thank you for bringing your energy and enthusiasm to each of Black Violin’s performances, and making the 2015 Levitt National Tour such a success!

Keep sharing your Levitt concert pics on Twitter and Instagram with #musicmoves for your chance to win a $100 iTunes gift card—there will be a winner every month through October 31! See the #musicmoves August winner.
