On Tuesday, July 9, a spectacular sunset provided a perfect background for the Del Mar Foundation Summer Twilight Concert.  The second of four summer concerts had people from all ages pack the Powerhouse Park as everyone sang and danced to the popular music from L.A. band Mrs. Robinson. Robin Henkel, a San Diego jazz and blues musician, with Billy Watson on harmonica, kicked off the evening as the opening act.

Chris Fowler, 37, from Cardiff, who attended the summer concert with his family said, “It’s amazing that the Del Mar Foundation has these summer concerts.”  While holding his 2-year-old son Lyndon on his shoulders, he added, “We have been coming to these summer concerts for years and always have a great time.”

The great time everyone was having is made possible through the help of many volunteers and with generous donations from the County of San Diego and nearby businesses, including the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club, Marrokal Design and Remodeling, Jake’s Del Mar, Lutz Insurance Services, Poseidon, Pacifica Del Mar, Zel’s Del Mar and Jeff Miller.

At the July 9 concert the Del Mar Junior Lifeguards walked through the crowded park selling raffle tickets eligible for gift certificates from local restaurants.  This is one of the many ways the Del Mar Foundation raises funds for the concert series.

“We were at the last concert and make every effort to attend all the concerts,” said Bob Papera, 70, from Carmel Valley.  Papera and his wife have been going to the summer concerts for years and said they especially enjoy the weather, music, food and the fun time everyone is having.

If you haven’t attended a summer concert or look forward to the next one, mark your calendar for Tuesday, Aug. 13, featuring Back to the Garden: Tribute to Crosby, Stills and Nash.  The concert begins with the opening act at 6 p.m., 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. Please note the early start time with the opening act beginning at 4 p.m. followed by the main act at 5 p.m.
