St. John’s Summer Concert Series
With generous support from our fabulous slate of sponsors, St. John’s welcomes thousands of folks for free evenings of song and dance on five Thursday nights throughout the summer!
The Summer Concert Series has come a long way from its humble beginnings in 1997 with a modest attendance of fewer than 100 fans. With 19 seasons under our belt, it is not unusual to have 2,000 fans gathered to enjoy one our concerts during the season, with season attendance around 10,000.
July 6th: Larry Gatlin and the Gatlin Brothers
Over 50 years ago, Larry, Steve, and Rudy Gatlin started singing in their little hometown of Abilene, Texas, and from there went on to make music history. Over the course of a four-decade career that has taken the Gatlin Brothers from dusty Texas stages to White House performances, from Broadway to Grammy Awards to the top of the country charts, there has been one unifying element, music. Larry, Steve, and Rudy love to sing together. Raised on Gospel music, the brothers first began entertaining audiences in churches and then with guest appearances on the Slim Willet radio and TV shows in Abilene, Texas when they were 2, 4, and 6 years old.
