The Hilde Performance Center Site has undergone significant improvements in the past several years. Due to new underground wiring and sprinkling systems, a strict policy prohibiting staking and roping off of seating areas is in effect. In addition, the site will be closed to the public for maintenance and event preparation on July 2. Residents will not be allowed to leave blankets, chairs or tarps on the ground until after 7 a.m.

** Due to the uncertainty of the ongoing labor dispute between management and musicians of the Minnesota Orchestra, it became necessary to move forward with planning for Music in Plymouth 2013 without the inclusion of the Minnesota Orchestra. This marks the first year in the event’s 41 year history that the Minnesota Orchestra will not perform; the PCL and City of Plymouth look forward to that ensemble’s return to the Hilde Performance Center in 2014.

About Music in Plymouth
Music in Plymouth began in 1972 on a vacant lot in the Minneapolis Industrial Park. Al Hilde, Jr., Plymouth’s mayor, formed a citizen committee, the Plymouth Civic League (PCL) to sponsor the concert of the Minnesota Orchestra in Plymouth in an effort to promote community identity and spirit. Today, Music in Plymouth (MIP) has become an annual summer extravaganza eagerly anticipated by residents of Plymouth and surrounding communities; more than 15,000 people bring their picnic suppers, enjoy the pre-concert activities and then sit back and revel in the starlight concert in the Hilde Performance Center with its accompanying fireworks. The entire evening’s events are simulcast on large screens that have been added to enhance visual accessibility for the crowd.
The continued growth and success of Music in Plymouth depends on the commitment of individuals and businesses that make their home in the community. You can join the many other civic-minded Plymouth businesses to become a valuable part of this long-standing tradition. Your contribution to the annual operating fund will ensure that thousands of people are able to gather in the heart of Plymouth for a spectacular evening of music, fireworks and community spirit.
The Plymouth Civic League accepts tax-deductible cash and material contributions in eight categories. 100% of all contributions go toward the cost of Music in Plymouth.
