While the Denver Botanic Gardens announced its Summer Concert Series last week, there are many more musical outdoor adventures to look forward to in metro Denver. Over the past six years, Levitt Pavilion has hosted free concerts on the sprawling, lush green grass of Ruby Hill Park that has made the venue a summer destination for music lovers.
