Hello everyone … thank you so much for supporting us this season. Your backing provides us the opportunity to continue providing free quality concerts to the residents of Williamson County.
On May 10th & 11th plan to join us for an evening of wonderful outdoor music sure to please people of all ages.
Bring a picnic, lawn chairs, blankets, pets … and … delight to the great music of Williamson County Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Dr. Thomas E. Rainey.
Dance to Leroy Anderson’s Blue Tango, enjoy John Williams original arrangement of Jurassic Park, and recall Fantine’s lamenting song I Dreamed a Dream from Les Miserables …
In addition, enjoy meeting Bugs Bunny in What’s Up at the Symphony, tap your toes to a medley of Satchmo tunes including Hello Dolly, When the Saints Go Marching In … and … more.
Enjoy our composer in residence, Dr. M. L. Daniels as he conducts his very first published orchestral arrangement, Festique.
Plus, we will announce the winner of the ‘name that tune’ contest from our March Concert Series!
There is much much more … Fiddle Faddle featuring our violins, the infamous 76 Trombones, Gayne Selections from Ballet and of course … a Sousa March.
The Friday evening concert (May 10) is performed in a wonderful neighborhood park in far south Cedar Park. Anderson Mill West Park is located on El Salido Pkwy across from Cypress Elementary. The Orchestra sets up under the covered pavilion and the audience can pull up chairs there or spread a blanket on the lawn. Children love to wander around the edges of the Orchestra to watch the musicians in various sections perform.
The Saturday evening concert (May 11) is performed at the Lake Pavilion in Old Settlers Park in Round Rock about 1/2 mile back behind Dell Diamond off of US 79. The pavilion is larger, the grassy areas are larger, there is a hillside and the crowds are larger. Many families bring their picnics and start having their evening meal as the Orchestra musicians are gathering and warming up. Church groups often show up to have covered dish meals and then sit back and enjoy the “pops” concert. As as always, children love to get up close to see and feel the power of music from a large symphony orchestra.
We hope you will join us for a wonderful Summer Night … enjoying music under the stars!
