ASO Firestone Park Summer Concert

Presented by Akron Symphony Orchestra at Firestone Metro Park, Akron OH

Jul 29 2018
ASO Firestone Park Summer Concert

Join the Akron Symphony and the City of Akron for a free outdoor concert at Firestone Metro Park at 7:30 p.m.

The evening will feature a bounty of popular favorites, including Rossini’s The Barber of Seville Overture, selections from Leonard Bernstein’s electrifying West Side Story, the concert suite from the Alfred Hitchcock classic Vertigo, as well as iconic music from Star Wars and The Rebellion is Reborn from The Last Jedi.

Barbara O’Brien, principal flute, will be the featured soloist on Borne’s Carmen Fantasy, arranged by French composer François Borne.

“We program a great variety of works, from classic pops to popular classics. I look for listenable, high energy, lyrical music, and also to some extent topical works,” said Music Director Christopher Wilkins. “These Akron Symphony programs are part of a long American tradition of popular orchestral concerts performed outdoors in the summertime for families. John Philip Sousa and Arthur Fiedler helped establish the tradition, the City of Akron and the Akron Symphony are keeping it strong here in Akron.”
