Preliminary schedule of Mason District summer concerts announced

The amphitheatre at Mason District Park.
A preliminary 2013 schedule of free summer concerts at the amphitheatre in Mason District Park has been published in Mason Supervisor Penny Gross’ newsletter. The Spotlight by Starlight shows, presented by the Fairfax County Park Authority and Friends of Mason District Park, are 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday.

The schedule isn’t expected to be listed on the Park Authority website until May, so there will probably be some changes. Also, the Saturday morning performances for children haven’t been announced yet.


Cultural heritage performances and other shows also will take place Saturday evenings throughout the summer at Ossian Hall Park, 7900 Heritage Drive in Annandale, beginning June 1 with music and dancing from Taiwan. The complete schedule hasn’t yet been finalized.
