WPI’s popular Summer Breeze Concert Series, now in its 15th year, will continue on Wednesday, when nationally known folk rock musician Dave Binder takes the stage on the Rubin Campus Center patio at noon. Four additional performances are booked through Aug. 17.
The series kicked off on July 6, with the Marlene Jazz Quartet providing some cool jazz for lunchtime listeners.
Jim McLaughlin, assistant dean of student programs and director of the Rubin Campus Center says the lunchtime music series began in 2001, the first summer after the Campus Center was opened.
The summer concert series is just one thing that helps develop community and a place to gather, to have lunch, and to enjoy some entertainment, McLaughlin says. “The Campus Center is not just a building, it’s a program with many people involved to serve the community. The purpose of our building is to be the community center for the university, where all members can come and gather for activities and events.”
The Summer Lunch Hour Concert Series features live music each week from noon to 1 p.m. on the back patio or, if inclement weather, the Food Court stage.
