CEN­TRE­VILLE — The 2016 Thurs­days in the Park free con­cert se­ries, spon­sored by the Queen Anne’s County Arts Coun­cil, kicked off June 9 at the Ch­e­sa­peake Her­itage and Vis­i­tor Cen­ter in Ch­ester with a pro­duc­tion of “Mac­Beth.” The rest of the se­ries con­sists of mu­si­cal per­for­mances on the lawn at Hem­ing­way’s Restau­rant in Stevensville.

On June 23, grab your cow­boy hat and get sum­mer started with a taste of coun­try.
