2018 Levitt AMP Winner
The Levitt AMP Galva Music Series returns for the second year to enliven Wiley Park in Galva’s city center, further transforming the underused green space into a dynamic hub for self-expression and global, live music experiences. Building upon last year’s success, the 2019 series aims to deepen community engagement, expand local partnerships and bring the community a weekly celebration of the best Galva has to offer.
Presented by Galva Arts Council Inc, a nonprofit network of volunteers dedicated to bringing together residents in and around Galva to promote and participate in the arts, in partnership with John Taylor, Knox-Galesburg Symphony, and WVIK, Quad Cities National Public Radio (NPR).
