The premier concert series “Cool Thursdays Concert Series” at the Dallas Arboretum, sponsored by Wells Fargo Bank, returns Thursday, March 23 for its spring/summer series featuring fan favorite Emerald City. Single tickets go on sale February 22. Don’t miss the chance to attend Dallas’ favorite concert series overlooking the picturesque White Rock Lake on the award-winning Martin Rutchik Concert Stage & Lawn.
Missy Whisler, Dallas Arboretum’s senior vice president of sales and development, said, “Spring concert subscriptions sold out in 2016, and once single tickets go on sale, concerts sell out fast. Don’t miss the opportunity to see some of DFW’s favorite bands perform in one of the most beautiful places in Dallas.”
Emerald City kicks of the 2017 concert series on March 23, sponsored by Jackson Walker. The 13-piece, 3-horn section super group electrifies every audience with a combination of high-energy dance songs from the past with the hits of today. Emerald City’s ability to entertain is rivaled by their extensive ability to get the audience up on the dance floor. This super group has taken their energy all over the world, from Dallas to New York, to Paris, Dublin, Los Angeles and South America.
In addition to the coolest view of White Rock Lake, attendees can bring picnics and beverages or purchase food items from some of DFW’s favorite food trucks including Ruthie’s Rolling Cafe, Easy Slider, and Fried Pies For All. The gardens are also open to stroll through before the concert to enjoy the breathtaking spring displays of Dallas Blooms, featuring more than 500,000 spring blooms. The concert series continues through June 29. Gates open at 6 p.m., and concerts begin at 7:30 p.m.
