The Summer Spotlight concert series at the South Shore Conservatory in Hingham will fill the summer nights with song this month. Blues, jazz, the history of dance music, and the inspired silliness of Gilbert and Sullivan’s splendid maritime musical comedy “The Pirates of Penzance” provide the music beneath the stars at the school’s outdoor amphitheater.
In the first of two concerts this weekend, Berklee College singer-songwriter Nick Hakim holds the stage in a one-hour performance Friday. On Saturday night, the music school’s long-running “Evenings Under the Stars” series features the R&B band Superchief Trio. The next weekend the conservatory will install a dance floor under its pavilion for the Bo Winiker Dance Party. The month wraps up with a fun summer dose of Gilbert & Sullivan in a concert version of “Pirates” on July 27. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
