06.17.13 |
Join Maestro Stuart Malina and the Harrisburg Symphony Orchestra in celebrating our country's independence during the 2013 Summer Concert Series with music for the whole family. The free concert will be at Lebanon Valley College on the Academic Quad on Friday, July 5 at 8 p.m. In the event of rain, the concert will be held in the Lutz Hall of the Blair Music Center.

This is the sixth consecutive year LVC has hosted the symphony for a free summer concert. Guests are encouraged to bring a lawn chair and blanket, and enjoy an evening of wonderful patriotic music under the stars.

The HSO will perform "Cowboys Overture," "Ruslan and Ludmila Overture," "Trisch Trasch Polka," "Harry's Wondrous World," "West Side Story," and "Pops Hoedown, among other family favorites and patriotic classics." A 4th of July concert would not be complete without Tchaikovsky's "1812 Overture," "Stars & Stripes Forever," and "Armed Forces Salute."

The concert coincides with the opening of the Suzanne H. Arnold Art Gallery's summer exhibit, "Figure and Function: Selections from the Permanent Collection." A public opening reception takes place Friday, July 5 from 5 to 7 p.m. "Figure and Function" was curated by the Gallery's spring 2013 intern, David Yasenchak '13.

The symphony's 2013–2014 season, "Hear the Color," is just around the corner and subscriptions are available to both their Masterworks and Capital BlueCross Pops series. For more information or to subscribe today, please call 717-545-5527 or visit
