Outside and Upbeat

Saturday, May 4, 2019, 8:00 PM – Folsom Historic District Amphitheater

May the force be with you! Join the Folsom Lake Symphony and Peter Jaffe, Music Director and Conductor, for a magical evening of music under the stars.

In its second free outdoor concert of the season, the symphony will perform favorites by Grammy, Golden Globe, Emmy, and Academy Award winning composer John Williams, including the Superman March,  the Flying Theme from ET, the Raiders March from Raiders of the Lost Ark, and a host of pieces from Star Wars including the Main Theme, Princess Leia’s Theme, Imperial March, Yoda’s Theme, Throne Room, and the End Title from the original Star Wars. In addition to these Williams’ favorites, the symphony will be performing other iconic pieces such as the Theme from Shaft, Aquarius from Hair and more!

Come, join us for an exciting and magical evening, sure to thrill concert-goers of all ages. You might even find yourself feeling something special in the Force, with the appearance of the villainous characters of Star Wars, represented by the 501st Legion – Central California Garrison, “Vader’s Fist.”

The Folsom Historic District’s outdoor concert is free to everyone. Open seating begins at 7:00 pm – so bring your low back beach-style chairs or a blanket along with a picnic dinner to enjoy during the concert. The Folsom Historic District Amphitheater is located behind the Folsom Chamber of Commerce at 200 Wool Street, near the Folsom Railroad Museum.

We welcome you to be a part of the magic that is the Folsom Lake Symphony!

“So much of what we do is ephemeral and quickly forgotten, even by ourselves, so it’s gratifying to have something you have done linger in people’s memories.” John Williams
