summer symphony13 Jun 2009
Perfect weather, nice sunset, fireflies, feet in the grass, and music – what more could you want? I checked out the symphony’s free concert at the bicentennnial mall last night. It was great! A really nice selection of stuff: Mendelssohn, Prokofiev, Cole Porter, Tchaikovsky.. The theme was loosely Shakespeare-oriented, so they did little bits of Romeo & Juliet, Taming of the Shrew, etc, in between the pieces. It was cute. If you didn’t make it to this one, you’re not too late – there’s one more freebie at Centennial Park on June 16th at 7:30.
As a side note, it was great to see them actually using the outdoor auditorium at the bicentennial mall. Does anyone know why this doesn’t get used more often? It was perfect for this sort of thing – and I’d think it would be even more perfect than Centennial for Shakespeare in the Park. It’s a shame that it’s empty and unused most of the time.
