“It has always been a pleasure to welcome our community to the grounds for Naper Nights concerts, but this year is especially meaningful,” said Rena Tamayo-Calabrese, president and CEO at Naper Settlement. “We can't wait to see the smiling faces, the children running around, the lawn chairs spread out like a carpet at the foot of the Mansion, and people singing along to their favorite songs. Naper Nights is not only a celebration of some of the most influential musicians and bands in history from the past and present but also a way to gather our neighbors and create strong, resilient communities. We can't wait to have you join us!”
