President’s Welcome

Welcome to the 2015 Coronado Promenade Concert Season! 

Sunday concerts in the park are signature elements of the
Coronado experience where friendships and family memories
are made. This summer’s series promises to be the best ever in
our 45-year history! There are 11 new bands and lots of
exciting events this summer. Also new this year, free bus
service from the Coronado Cays. Look
for the MTS schedule in this program!
We are forever grateful to Mayor
Tanaka, the City Council, City Manager
Blair King, Police Chief Jon Froomin
and Fire Chief Mike Blood for their
continued support and the in-kind
donation the city provides through the
availability of Public Services & Safety
personnel needed to keep Spreckels
Park clean, safe and orderly. We
couldn’t do it without them!

On July 26th we will celebrate our 45th anniversary with a
special concert paying tribute to 1970 when the #1 song was
Bridge Over Troubled Waters by Simon & Garfunkel and 18
year olds could not yet vote! With much gratitude, I personally
thank our very special underwriters, Debi Boney of Boney’s
Bayside Market, The Newman Charitable Trust, Ann & Charles
Suhr, Dave Sweeney, Ray & Sherri Gosselin, Jim & Tamara
Zehentbauer, Bob Campbell and Peter & Ginny Jensen.
The following individuals, community civic groups and local
businesses are responsible for raising a majority of the funds
by sponsoring a concert. Folks, it takes $75,000 to put on this
concert series. Please join us in extending sincere heartfelt

near you, won’t you show your appreciation for the value of
this priceless experience and think about giving just $1 for
each person in your party every concert? Coronado
