8 Summer Concerts Ahead…

The Sinfonia will continue it’s tradition of presenting concerts at multiple outdoor venues this summer. Performances range from “lighter side” concerts that feature lighter fare, like Broadway and Waltzes, which are perfect for summer to classical concerts that feature our favorite composers for a relaxing summer evening.   All of our concerts are a perfect activity for your family. Children are always welcome and encouraged to attend. Mark your calendars and get you lawn chairs and picnic baskets ready. We can’t wait to see you.
