Thank you for your support of Summer Serenades in the Park 2019! Our 2020 Summer Season will be announced by May 2020.

Free concerts in your local Stark County Park

What happens when the spontaneous sounds of nature and people enjoying a park are combined with the orchestrated sounds of musicians? Serenades in the Park — a free, family-friendly, series of brass, woodwind, and string ensembles performing all over Stark County beginning in June and finishing with a full-orchestra concert in September! Everyone is invited to bring your favorite picnic food, games, and blanket or chair and enjoy the setting and music. Pre-concert activities coordinated by CSO and SCPD staff are offered before each performance.  The series is sponsored in part by Stark County Park District.

The ensemble performances take place each month (June, July, August, and September) and feature 3 to 5 CSO musicians in a casual program of light classics, pops, patriotic, jazz and/or folk repertoire.

All concerts offer events before hand, so come early for some extra family fun!
If the concert is threatened by inclement weather (including rain, lightning or temperatures colder than 63 degrees), the concert will be cancelled.  Please check our website prior to coming to the concert!

Please bring your own chairs and/or blankets  to sit on and enjoy each concert.
