The Saint Louis Art Museum announces the lineup for its third annual outdoor film series.

Musical performances begin at 7 p.m. on Art Hill Plaza. All films are free and begin promptly at 9 p.m.

The museum’s main level and restrooms will remain open until 11 p.m. Free parking is available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Sauce Magazine’s Food Truck Fest will begin at 7 p.m. each Friday with a selection of local mobile eateries positioned on Fine Arts Drive.

Following is the concert lineup:

Friday, July 6 — “Monty Python and the Holy Grail.”

Greenleaf Singers and instrumental ensemble: A St. Louis vocal troupe, the Greenleaf Singers perform early European music, dating from the time of Leonardo through the age of Shakespeare. Their repertoire includes folk songs from village festivals, love melodies from royal palaces and drinking numbers from raucous taverns.

Friday, July 13 — “The Birds.”

Scarlet Tanager: Hailing from St. Louis, six-member Scarlet Tanager writes and records melodic indie pop music. Led by Susan Logsdon, this group of husbands, wives, brothers, sisters and friends features a variety of instruments. Their first CD, “American Songbird,” was released in June 2011.

Friday, July 20 — “A Hard Day’s Night.”

Pepperland Band: This local group, formed in 1996, has played together in various incarnations for over 15 years. By performing the music of John, Paul, George and Ringo — both as The Beatles and as soloists — with an offbeat, updated twist, Pepperland maintains a sound and identity of their own while recreating the spirit that defined a generation.

Friday, July 27 — “Goldfinger.”

Big Brother Thunder and the MasterBlasters: This group draws on African, Caribbean and Brazilian styles and rhythms to create an energetic blend of funk-soul with rock and jazz. Big Brother Thunder, a male and female group of vocalists and musicians, combines its talent with the MasterBlasters, a horn trio, producing a sound you can’t help but move to.

The museum is regularly open Tuesdays through Sundays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and until 9 p.m. on Fridays. For more information on the outdoor film series, people can please visit slam.org/filmseries.
