Submitted. The Abbotsford Arts Council, in partnership with Envision Financial, is pleased to announce the return of the very popular Envision Coffee House Concert Series and Envision Concert in the Park Series. These wonderful series provide local artists with the chance to perform in a relaxed and casual atmosphere while the community enjoys various musical genres ranging from jazz, blues and folk to country, rock and pop.

Every Saturday evening from 8-10PM, May 19 to June 23, and then again from September 22 to October 27, residents will have an opportunity to hear free, live music at participating local coffee houses, including House of James, Clayburn Gourmet Gallery, Wired Monk McCallum Road and Wired Monk Parallel Marketplace. For those who prefer listening to music in the great outdoors, head to Mill Lake Park from June 30 to September 15 between 6-8 PM.—bring your blankets and lawn chairs and enjoy free music concerts in the park.

“Envision is always looking for innovative ways to support the arts and bring the community together,” explains Susan Byrom, manager of corporate citizenship at Envision Financial. “This is our fifth year of partnership with Abbotsford Arts Council—we’re excited to once again showcase some of the amazing talent this city has to offer.”

These free concert series are a great way to spend a Saturday night—enjoy the gift of music with a cup of coffee in hand while you support local businesses and artists in Abbotsford.
