Metro Hall Sizzles With Summer Music Series
Metro Hall is the place to be this summer for exciting musical performances.

"From 4 Corners," a free summer concert series, will feature a variety of
musical experiences in Metro Square, 55 John Street, from June 18 to August 6.

From pop to big band, jazz to cajun, the "From 4 Corners" series has something
for everyone to enjoy.

The concerts are held every Thursday from 12:15 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. In case of
