     Featured Artists are musicians or concert series drawn from the summer concert performances. Generally two "Featured Artists" are named each month, one for the first half of the month and one for the second half, and the section also includes one featured concert series for the summer. The current Featured Artists remain at the top of the page for a two-week period, then the information remains on the page in chronological order through the end of the summer.

     Please welcome the first featured artists of 2018, the artists of the 2018 Featured Series, the Baldwin Park Concerts in the Park and Downtown Street Market.
