The Alumni Association at CSULB will close out the 32nd season of its Concerts in the Grove series with its remaining Saturday night performance at the Hollywood Bowl-type atmosphere of the campus’ Soroptimist House terrace.
Gates open at 6 p.m. for concertgoers who wish to bring a picnic supper prior to the 7:30 p.m. program under the stars. Admission price is $25.
A popular Concerts in the Grove pastime is the raffle drawing for donated gifts from local merchants. Just a few of the past prizes have included $100 savings bonds, DVD players, cruises around the Long Beach harbor, accommodations at fine hotels and gift certificates to local restaurants.
All proceeds from Concerts in the Grove help finance the CSULB campus grants program and numerous alumni programs throughout the year. Thanks to community generosity, the number of grants and available dollars has steadily grown, and the concert series continues its commitment to support the university's educational programs of excellence.
The concert series will close out on Aug. 23 with The Beach Toys, who have earned the title of the best and most popular Beach Boys tribute show ever. Having traveled the all around the world, the group has been featured in Las Vegas as well as Disney’s theme parks. The Beach Toys are also the only show personally selected to play for the real Beach Boys' family and friends at the California Beach Boys historical landmark dedication. They capture the look, dress and sound of the 1960s Beach Boys with amazing accuracy. Audiences will hear such great hits as “Help Me Rhonda,” “Surfin’ USA,” “Surfer Girl,” “California Girls,” “Good Vibrations,” and many more with astounding authenticity.
