Sunday in the Park with the Erie Phil
This free concert will feature some of the best-known classical standards
Sunday, Jul. 28
If you haven't found a reason to visit Frontier Park yet, may we make a suggestion?
The only thing more sublime than the city's premier grounds for recreation, relaxation, and a plethora of greenery is all of that plus live music by the Erie Philharmonic Octet (via the Bruce Morton Wright Chamber Series) on a Sunday afternoon.
This free concert, presented by the Lake Erie Arboretum at Frontier (or LEAF), will feature some of the best-known classical standards, including music from Bizet's opera Carmen, Beethoven's Symphony No. 7, "Russian Sailor's Dance" by Reinhold Gliere, Rossini's "William Tell Overture," Sousa's "Stars and Stripes Forever," and more.
This special series is named for the Gannon University instructor of fine arts and music director Bruce Morton Wright, who passed away in 2011, and whose life's work was to ensure the spread of music education, as well as access to music for all. In keeping with his spirit and mission, the Frontier Chamber Series performance is open to the public and costs nothing to attend.
Some amphitheater seating is available, but guests are invited to bring their own chairs and blankets to the unique outdoor concert space. — Cara Suppa
