Headlined by Rock & Roll Hall of Famer and music legend Billy Joel's July 26 show, the first-ever concert at Oriole Park at Camden Yards, the 2019 Birdland Summer Music Series also featured Friday Fireworks & Women of Country Music and Saturday Roof Deck Sessions during home games last summer.
BIRDLAND SUMMER MUSIC SERIES RECAP
The Orioles, Live Nation, and Orioles Entertainment presented Billy Joel in an historic, first-ever concert at Oriole Park at Camden Yards on Friday, July 26.
FRIDAY FIREWORKS & WOMEN OF COUNTRY MUSIC
Taking place after Friday home games from June 14 through August 23, the Friday Fireworks & Women of Country Music Series featured an emerging female country artist performing a set on the field by home plate following the game and before the fireworks began.
Friday Fireworks & Women of Country Music is in partnership with Change the Conversation, an organization committed to fighting gender inequality in the music industry by providing support, education, and a community for female artists and executives. The concept was created by the female-led entertainment company Pound It Out LOUD.
This music series featuring emerging female artists is part of a year-long celebration centered around the passage and ratification of the right to vote for women in the United States.
Each date, the artists signed autographs and met fans at the National Woman's Party's Standing Together exhibit, and select artist and Orioles items were auctioned off to benefit the National Woman's Party and Change the Conversation, as well as other groups helping to advance women's and girls' empowerment causes.
In Partnership With
SATURDAY ROOF DECK SESSIONS
Showcasing local and national talent, Saturday Roof Deck Sessions were held on the Budweiser Roof Deck in center field prior to Saturday home games June 15 through August 24.
With their game ticket, fans were invited to enjoy intimate hour-long pregame performances, which were also broadcast throughout the ballpark, and beer specials until scheduled first pitch.
