Community Foundation Performing Arts Series
Since 2010, the Community Foundation has hosted the annual Community Foundation Performing Arts Series at the Chris Wilson Pavilion in South Bend's Potawatomi Park. This free series, which is designed to showcoase our community's best performing arts talent, is held on Saturday evenings at 7 p.m. in late July and early August. The series is made possible through the Community Foundation's ArtsEverywhere Fund, the Marjorie H. Wilson Charitable Trust Fund, and the Indiana Arts Commission.
The series includes instrumental music, dance, theater, and vocal music, and is anchored by a full performance by the South Bend Symphony Orchestra. The Symphony's concert traditionally includes a community "play-along" for local musicans, providing an opportunity for them to join the Symphony in a specially-commissioned piece.
