Huntington Beach, Calif.―June is in bloom with free summer concerts at the beach, near the beach and sometimes in the park (Central Park). Music provides the harmony in our lives and offers an ocean of opportunities for kids to explore; it opens a door to things such as creative expression and even can aid in concentration, according to a study that discovered music can be instrumental in enhancing thinking processes, especially if you listen to classical music.

In Huntington Beach, the concerts are free and offer a variety of performers. Granted, you'll seldom find Beethoven or Bach performed outdoors as the music tends toward contemporary, alternative or surf. One Surf Museum volunteer, Linda Miller, has put together a fantastic line up of surf concerts. For several years Miller has taken on this formidable task of inviting and arranging for the best bands in the surf music genre to trek to Huntington Beach, California to play. It is one of the finest surf concerts series in the USA, and it's free! The surf concerts sometimes are performed at Pier Plaza adjacent to the Huntington Beach Pier (Pacific Coast Highway and Main Street). The other performance venue for this lively, rocking daytime, outdoor shows is Huntington Beach International Surfing Museum at 411 Olive three blocks from Pier Plaza. 

Another concert series is organized by City of Huntington Beach Community Services staffer, Naida Osline. Previewing literally hundreds of band tapes and demos, Osline chooses a broad mix of performers that range from rockabilly to African, Cuban, swing, jazz and good ol' rock 'n roll. The performers mostly are known for their high-energy shows and usually have a long list of credits that include record releases. Again, these outstanding concerts are free!  Sponsored by the City of Huntington Beach, the concerts are held on specific summer weekends at Pier Plaza overlooking the Huntington Beach Pier and Pacific Ocean in Huntington Beach.

Does it get any better'  Yes! There are also free concerts in Central Park on weekends. Sometimes you have to shift into musical overload as you rush from the pier to the park to take in all the quality music in a 5 mile radius. But it's worth the effort to experience the old-fashioned, shaded lawn blanket and picnic basket concert under the huge eucalyptus and oaks that send out a fragrant, woodsy scent as you watch the Huntington Beach Concert Band series that features the city's very own band, plus other guest artists. The music in this venue is usually jazz to classic, show tunes to pops. The quality of artists are world class. The musicians often come from the music industry or may teach music at universities.

Huntington Beach is so understated in its musical endeavors, yet if delve into the list of performers who call this Southern California beach city "home", you'll find an incredible list of artists, performers and credits that make you say, Wow!  This place has lots of talent and in the summer, you can feel it, hear it and see it in the sunlight or shade, for free.
