It is with heavy hearts that COA Youth & Family Centers has decided to cancel the 7 COA Skyline Music concerts this summer. Skyline Music, which attracts 9,000 people annually, is the park’s flagship event, but under the current circumstances we do not believe it is in the community’s best interest to bring large crowds together for concerts in the park. Over the past 14 years, COA’s Kilbourn-Kadish Park (located south of North Ave on the bluff overlooking the Milwaukee River and Commerce Street) has become a community gathering place. We will miss the bands and the many families who come from Riverwest and throughout the entire Greater Milwaukee area to enjoy the great music, kids activities, the vendors, and the amazing skyline view of Milwaukee.
While the concerts will not be held this summer, COA will be providing programming for Milwaukee children and families throughout the summer: child care at our 2 community centers, youth programming at our 2 community centers and 5 schools, the food pantry at the COA Goldin Center, and the daily meal program in Moody Park.
We look forward to next summer and another season of Skyline Music.
