Due to Dragon on the Lake festivities, there was no concert the week of August 27th.

The last concert featured the singer/songwriter duo, Escaping Pavement. Emily Burns and Aaron Markovitz offered the beauty of acoustic music and the warm rejuvenation of two vocal intonations that perfectly complement one another.

The Gazebo concert series started in 2003 and continues to entertain people of all ages, from all around the community. It’s just one of the many ways the Lake Orion DDA works to create an environment in which businesses, people and organizations can thrive in the heart and hub of the Orion Community.
