A slew of great concerts and events are already lined up for this summer, prime opportunities for new hires to gets hands-on experience. From the July 4 fireworks celebration with The Florida Orchestra, to Taking Back Sunday, Ringo Starr, Goo Goo Dolls, and John Fogerty, The Sound is expected to be an immediate and a must-visit destination this summer and beyond.

Designed to connect the waterfront and the Downtown Clearwater community, Coachman Park’s renovations include 19 acres of park space, a gateway plaza and bluff walk that connects the park to downtown, public art spaces, a pedestrian promenade overlooking the Intracoastal Waterway, a marina amenity building, a 320-foot scenic lake overlook with solar-powered rentable pavilions and a pirate-themed playground area with a splash pad.

The Sound is the highlight of the park’s redevelopment. The addition of this venue will allow the city to continue with its downtown redevelopment goals and establish the area as a premier location for diverse live entertainment, with a year-round performance schedule.


“This will be an iconic venue offering a one-of-a-kind experience in Tampa Bay. The Sound will host great entertainment in front of Clearwater’s breathtaking sunset and is sure to be an artist favorite,” said Susan M. Crockett, Ruth Eckerd Hall President & CEO.
