Join the Akron Symphony as we partner with the City of Akron to offer a series of free outdoor concerts this summer in city parks.
The performances begin at 7:30 p.m. and include a variety of popular favorites, including Tubby the Tuba, featuring Ken Heinlein, principal tuba; Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake Suite; and John Williams’ Suite from Jaws and March from Superman.
The Symphony will also perform The Paper Man, a composition by 17-year-old Harrison Collins, a finalist in the 2017 National Young Composers Challenge.
Last year, thousands spent their Sunday evenings under the stars with the Akron Symphony Orchestra performing on the outdoor stage built for the Heinz Poll Summer Dance Festival.
The Akron Symphony’s summer concerts are free to attend and are supported by The City of Akron.
A Note about Parking:
Construction on the city’s sewer project means you may need to plan an alternate route to Glendale Cemetery. Signs will direct traffic to all parking areas — follow the signs and you should have no problem!
