Bonjour Kathleen,

I listened to the audio several times and I can definitely hear 'des' not 'les'. Sometimes the speed at which an audio is played can have an impact on what is heard. 

Profiter de + [qch / qqn] = to make the most of [sth] / to enjoy [sth] / to take advantage of [sth]

Je profite du soleil I make the most of the sun

Je profite de la vue = I am enjoying the view

Je profite de l'instant présent I am seizing the moment

Je profite des vacances = I am making the most of the holidays

 

I hope this is helpful.

Bonne journée !

I have listened today and clearly hear “des concerts gratuits”. Connection fluctuations can cause problems - have had it happen.
