Under the Elms 2014 Summer Concert Series


The Under the Elms 2014 summer concert series will temporarily relocate to another outdoor venue on College Green due to construction scheduled to place this summer.

The music series, which has been taking place nearly every summer since the late 1940s, gathers community and Ohio University musicians for weekly concerts over a period of five weeks. The concerts are traditionally held on the College Green under the mature elm trees that shade the space between Chubb Hall and Memorial Auditorium. This year, however, they will be held near by in the amphitheater outside of Scripps Hall.


The concert series rain location remains the same. If inclement weather affects the evening’s performance, the show will take place inside Memorial Auditorium.

This year's schedule is:


June 4 – Tribute to the Greatest Generation (D-Day 70th Anniversary)

June 11 – Be Our Guests, Part One featuring area band directors

June 18 – Be Our Guests, Part Two featuring C. Scott Smith, horn; Joey Van Hassel, snare drum; and participants of the OHIO Summer Music Camp

June 25 – There’s No Business Like Show Business: Music for Stage and Screen

July 2 – Celebrate America!
