Kadence Yeager, 6, of Arnold gets comfy with her grandfather, Mario Tempest of New Kensington, last year at one of the Tarentum Recreation Board's Summer Concert Series at Riverview Memorial Park. The series kicks off again on June 1, 2016.

Tarentum’s summer concert series can’t seem to catch a break.

The debut performance with American Pie, rescheduled for tonight from last week, has been cancelled a second time because of the threat of rain.

The group had been scheduled to start the concert series on June 13.

There is a strong chance of thunderstorms this evening.

American Pie will be rescheduled again, but it’s not known when, said Barb Magnetta, secretary of the Tarentum Recreation Board, which sponsors the concerts.

“They’re really in-demand down there,” she said. “People like them.”

Under the original schedule , Mary Ann Mangini and the Johnny Angel Trio are performing next week, at 7 p.m. June 27, in the band shell at Tarentum’s Riverview Memorial Park.

The rain date for that performance is Aug. 29.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
