The Charlotte Symphony is getting ready to return to SouthPark’s Symphony Park.
The symphony plays a number of outdoor concerts each summer in south Charlotte, and will do so again this summer starting June 10 with a performance by the Charlotte Symphony Youth Orchestra. Other shows are June 17 and 24 and July 1 and 3. Guest conductor Albert-George Schram will lead the orchestra in all performances other than the June 17 show. Associate conductor Jacomo Rafael Bairos will lead that performance.
Tickets for individual shows are $10 for adults and children get in free. People can get admission to all five concerts with a special pass for $35. This is the second year the Summer Pops concerts have cost to attend as the symphony was forced to introduce tickets to fund the program last year. The Summer Pops series has been in SouthPark since 1994, and at Symphony Park since it opened in 2002.
Prelude acts each evening start at 7 p.m., with the symphony performing at 8:15 p.m.
