The sounds of music will again be heard this summer at Gregory Park on the north side of Brainerd. 

The Lakes Area Senior Activity Center is bringing back bandstand performances every Thursday this summer beginning at 7 p.m. June 9 with Diane Saumer and Friends. Participants may bring their lawn chairs, blanket or sit on the park bench to enjoy the open air concert. Pending rainy weather, the concerts would be moved to the senior center, 803 Kingwood Street.
