Durham Symphony Pops in the Park – in OUR Park!

Please join your neighbors plus people from all over town for the Durham Symphony’s annual Pops in the Park concert. The date is Saturday, May 17, starting at 5:00 p.m. in The Park in Trinity Park (corner of Trinity Avenue and Watts Street). Bring a blanket or lawn chairs for your use and pack a picnic supper to enjoy on a Spring evening!

The program promises to delight us again and includes music that will please both children and adults. We will hear Bizet’s Farandole from “L’Arlesienne” Suite No. 2; Verdi’s Overture to “La Forza del Destino”; two suites from Grieg’s “Peer Gynt” (Peer Gynt’s Homeward Journey and Hall of the Mountain King); Stravinsky’s Berceuse and Finale from the Firebird Suite; Rodgers/Bennet: Selections from ‘The Sound of Music”; and Williams: Selections from “Star Wars”.

This FREE event is co-sponsored by the Durham Symphony and Trinity Park Neighborhood Association. TPNA is grateful for this partnership and the generosity of the Durham Symphony.

Volunteers are needed to make the concert a success. If you can help, please contact Julia Borbely-Brown (juliaborbelybrown@yahoo.com). Tasks include: putting up flyers; tidying The Park before and after the concert; transporting and setting up seventy chairs we will borrow for the orchestra; helping to welcome and direct guests as they arrive; and taking down and returning the chairs after the concert.

In case of rain on May 17, the event will be moved to the gym of Watts Montessori Magnet. If the weather looks bad, please check the websites (www.trinitypark.org or www.durhamsymphony.org) for precise details that day.
