symphony summer iconThe Alabama Symphony Orchestra has been a ever-giving source of news in recent weeks. The big news for long-time fans of the symphony’s outdoor performances in Caldwell Park is that they will be playing outside again this year after a one-year hiatus indoors at the Alabama Theatre.

Classical music fans will have opportunities over three evenings in June at Railroad Park to enjoy the sounds of the orchestra. The free concerts are courtesy of the Linn-Henley Charitable Trust; the June 10 & 11 performances will begin at 8 p.m. with the June 12 performance starting at 6 p.m.

A full listing of the selections scheduled to be performed are available on the symphony’s official website. Those attending the performances will also have the opportunity to drop off donations to be used in the state’s ongoing tornado recovery efforts.

Other recent announcements included word that next season would be maestro Justin Brown’s last as music director and principal conductor (though he did sign a two-year contract extension that will have him serving as music director laureate) and that the orchestra will be performing at Carnegie Hall next May.
