BALTIMORE — The Baltimore Orioles are bring live music back to Camden Yards via a summer concert series.

The Birdland Summer Music Series marks the return of live music entertainm­ent to downtown Baltimore with COVID orders and restrictio­ns eased.

On Saturday, July 24, the Orioles will welcome Grammy-winning artist Diplo — following the home game against the Washington Nationals.

On Thursday, September 16, country singer Carter Faith will open for Grammy-nominated folk rock band The Avett Brothers after the 5:05 p.m. game against the New York Yankees.

Both postgame concerts are included with purchase of a game ticket for that respective date and will be open to all fans in attendance. Special on-field passes are also available for purchase for those that wish to be closer to the action.

Fans will have the opportunit­y to share their love of music by making a voluntary donation to benefit Baltimore arts and music education groups at the time of their ticket purchase.

The Orioles will match up to $10,000 in fan donations, with all proceeds benefiting the Orioles Charitable Foundation’s Athletes and Artists Play for Kids Educationa­l Scholarshi­p Fund.
