Since 2008, the Levitt Shell has been building a stronger, more connected community through free music and education, finding common ground in a diverse audience.

With more than 500 free concerts in over a decade, the Levitt Shell has successfully grown to serve more than 125,000 patrons annually.  This success has created a need to improve the Shell’s community areas, enhance its acoustics and preserve its free programming for the future.
