WESTBOROUGH – The Willows at Westborough’s summer concert series is underway.

The concerts are held every Wednesday from 7 to 8:15 p.m. in the courtyard of The Willows.

The Willows’ summer concerts have been taking place for about 30 years.

The summer concerts kicked off on June 14 with The Reminisants. So far, the lineup has included the Interboro Community Band, Westwood Swing Band and the Riverboard Stompers.

There are still several bands on the horizon before the season ends in August. Next up is the Fantasy Big Band on July 12. The Wolverines will be performing on July 19, and then The Abeltones will take the stage on July 26.

The summer concert series will round out with Dan Gabel’s Stoptime Revue on Aug. 2.

Director of Resident Services Polly Horenstein said that her favorite part of the summer concert series is seeing the community members attending and enjoying the concerts on the lawn.

“And our residents of course — meeting them or re-meeting old friends or having their daughters or their grandkids come. It’s very nice,” said Horenstein.

In addition to seeing their friends and loved ones, Horenstein said The Willows residents also enjoy listening to the music.

“What’s better than music outside?” she said.

Also on the horizon at The Willows is a book signing by the author of “Hunting Whitey” Dave Wedge on Aug. 3 at 2:30 p.m.

The Willows is a SALMON community. For more information, visit
