For the last six weeks thousands of music fans have been enjoying the Lagoon Summer Concert Series, one of Northern Colorado’s favorite family-friendly events. Hosted on the west lawn of the Colorado State University Lory Student Center, this popular summer tradition brings together friends and families on Wednesday nights from 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. for live music, activities, sponsored booths and great dinner options from food trucks.
The series will host its final performance this Wednesday, July 27. Taking the stage for the grand finale is Northern Colorado favorite, Wendy Woo. Her energetic personality, musical skills and spirited songwriting have made her a media and fan favorite. Wendy has been named Westword Magazine’s Music Awards “Singer/Songwriter of the year” five separate times, resulting in her induction into Westword’s Hall of Fame.
