GLOUCESTER-The Virginia Symphony Orchestra will perform a free concert entitled Symphony Under the Stars on Saturday, June 3, in Gloucester. In partnership with the Gloucester Arts Festival, the Virginia Symphony Orchestra is celebrating its 17th year of making music accessible to everyone in the community. The public is invited to attend one of Gloucester’s most anticipated events of the year. The event will begin at 6pm with a performance by Gloucester’s own Liberty Dolls followed by the Virginia Symphony Orchestra, who will take the stage at 8pm.

This year’s repertoire will include tunes from classical greats like Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov’s “The Sea and Sinbad’s Ship” from Scheherazade, in addition to music from popular contemporary composers like Alan Menken’s “Part of Your World” from The Little Mermaid, and Lin-Manuel Miranda and Mark Mancina’s “How Far I’ll Go” from Moana.

The concert will be held at the corner of Main Street and Walter Reed Way in Gloucester. Attendees are encouraged to bring lawn chairs, blankets, and picnics to the spectacular evening under the stars. For more information about the event, visit Gloucester Arts Festival’s website.
