The City Lights Orchestra will perform from 5 to 7 p.m. June 30 at Centennial Park West in Orland Park.
The Park is at Park Station Boulevard and Somerglen Lane.
Rich Daniels and the City Lights Orchestra have been entertaining audiences across the nation since 1974 with their renditions of songs by musicians ranging from the Beatles to the Big Band Era to Sinatra to Motown.
“Bringing back the City Lights Orchestra is a great way to begin the holiday celebration in Orland Park,” Mayor Dan McLaughlin said in a press release. “Centennial Park West is the perfect place to enjoy some beautiful outdoor music, spend time with your family and friends and start your July 4th festivities.”
The concert is free. Attendees should bring lawn chairs, umbrellas, picnics, blankets and refreshments. The park has several rolling hills where attendees can sit to enjoy the performance.
Cooper’s Hawk Winery and Restaurant will provide concessions for sale.
Free parking will be available at the adjacent Metra station, 10401 W. 153rd St., with shuttle buses transporting attendees from the parking lot to the concert site.
