A cool evening breeze. Beautiful surroundings. Toe-tapping music.

It’s time again for Music Under the Stars at the Toledo Zoo, an eight-week series of free musical events featuring the Toledo Concert Band with conductor Sam Szor, commentator Gordon Ward, and local guest artists.

This Sunday and every Sunday through Aug. 31 at 7:30 p.m, come and experience the unique family-friendly series at the beautiful Toledo Zoo Amphitheatre, located at 2700 Broadway.

The line-up of activities includes:

Arts Commission of Greater Toledo: Hands-on activity: Friday–Monday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Create a “found object frog.” Choose from recycled materials of various colors, and then make your mark on a 20-foot-by-20-foot temporary mosaic of Toledo’s favorite amphibian - the frog! It’s like a collaborative paint-by-number, without the mess.
