The outdoor concert will take place against the backdrop of Sebago Lake and the foothills of the White Mountains. Concertgoers should bring their own lawn chairs and park at lots on either side of the Harold Alfond Center. Picnicking welcome, but no alcohol is allowed. If there is rain, the concert will not be rescheduled. 893-7723.
