June 11 – “1812” Overture

One of the major highlights of the spring season and the traditional feature of the final concert is the magnificent 1812 Overture by Tchaikovsky. Nine lucky audience members are selected to participate as the “cannon fire” – each holding a drum and waiting for their cue. Other highlights will include, a Tribute to Henry Mancini, Quest for Camelot, and more. Several young audience members will be selected from the audience to “guest conduct”, Waltz No.2. The evening will conclude with the 1812 Overture.
