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, and the Ada C. & Helen J. Rank Foundation.
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!
All concerts are weather permitting. Please bring your own chairs and/or blankets to sit on and enjoy each concert.
