The Del Mar Foundation kicked off its 30th annual Summer Twilight Concert series on June 18 at the Powerhouse Park in Del Mar. The first of this four concert series featured the returning band Atomic Groove, which rocked the crowd with its high-energy dance music. The Donnis Trio performed the opening act with their folk rock-inspired melodies, as families and friends
picnicked on the grass.

“You have good food, good music and friends with all this beautiful scenery; this is the best way to kick off the summer,” said Susan Johnson, a local teacher who attended with a group of friends. Johnson has been attending the summer concerts on and off for the last 20 years.

The concerts are made possible by the generous funding of its sponsors: The Del Mar Thoroughbred Club, Marrokal Design and Remodeling, Jake’s Del Mar, Lutz Insurance Services, Poseidon, Zel’s Del Mar and Jeff Miller and by a grant from the County of San Diego.  Volunteers, including Del Mar Lifeguards and Del Mar Foundation board members, ensured a well-run and memorable evening.

Nine-year-old Zoe Wallace of Del Mar, attending her first Twilight Concert with her family, said “The music is amazing and everyone is having such a good time.” She was quick to point out she plans to attend future summer concerts.

The next Twilight Concert takes place on Tuesday, July 9, featuring the band Mrs. Robinson.  On Tuesday, August 13, join the Del Mar Foundation for a Tribute to Crosby, Stills and Nash, Back to the Garden.  Both concerts begin at 6 p.m. with an opening act, followed by the main act at 7 p.m. The final Summer Twilight Concert will be on Sunday, Sept. 8, featuring Mark Wood and the Parrot Head Band. The opening act begins at 4 p.m. with the main act beginning at 5 p.m.

As Del Mar’s oldest 501(c)(3) non-profit, the Del Mar Foundation sponsors programs, makes grants, and manages over $1,500,000 in endowment funds to benefit the community and the San Dieguito Lagoon. The mission of the Del Mar Foundation is to promote civic pride and cohesiveness, acquire and preserve open space, improve beaches and parklands, raise and grant funds, and sponsor diverse cultural programs and community events in Del Mar.
