Mission Statement

"We will build community by finding common ground for a diverse audience through music and education that reflects the ethnic and cultural mix of the community. The Shell's rich history, its location in the heart of the city, the thoughtful renewal of the facility and the city's own rich musical heritage make the Levitt Shell and ideal setting for bringing the Memphis community together." - Friends of the Levitt Pavilion-Memphis

Description

The Levitt Shell is located in the beautiful and expansive Overton Park in Midtown Memphis, Tennessee. The park, an oasis of green in the middle of the city where art and culture come together has united Memphians for generations. The park itself is also home to miles of trails and a golf course, and is a natural setting for the creative spirit and young at heart since it is also home to the Brooks Museum of Art, the Memphis College of Art and the Memphis Zoo. Recognized as the site of Elvis Presley's first professional rock-n-roll show, The Levitt Shell has been an outdoor performing arts pavilion since the 1930s and is now ready for a new curtain call. Each year, the Levitt Shell will present 50 free, family-friendly shows during a fall season and a spring season. Concerts will feature professional performers and a range of genres including Americana, R&B, soul, gospel, Latin, children's music and world rhythms.
