CHAMPION, Pennsylvania ??вЂќ Seven Springs Mountain Resort has a full slate of summer concerts for 2005. The resort has been developing as a concert venue over the past four years, and built Grey Rocks Amphitheatre last year. This season brings improvements to the amphitheatre and a lineup of shows that appeal to a variety of people.
“The Rock the Mountain Summer Concert Series is going to be great this year,” comments Melissa Cullin, special events director. “The list of performers fit into so many genres of music. People will have a chance to enjoy classic rock, blues, contemporary rock, bluegrass and more. There really is a show for most musical tastes,” Cullin adds.
Grey Rocks Amphitheatre has grown and developed into a premier concert venue. The state-of-the-art stage and canopy offers the perfect facility for the performers, and additional food and beverage facilities, improved pedestrian access-ways and other changes will enhance the guests’ experience. “A beautiful mountain setting and the convenience of the hotel, restaurants and other resort activities in the Main Lodge are what really makes the concert experience at Seven Springs truly unique,” says Ms. Cullin.
