“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.” Composer John Williams.
And linger, this evening will, as you experience the sparkle and energy of the Folsom Lake Symphony at its summertime best!
A perfect night for lively, beautiful music by the water and under the stars, bring family and meet friends al fresco under the twinkling lights of the popular and beautiful El Dorado Hills Town Center. Longtime lovers of the full symphony will find welcome company with those wanting to experience orchestral music for a first time, as each delight in an evening featuring music from the late romantic and popular eras selected specially for this open-air concert by Folsom Lake Symphony Music Director and Conductor, Maestro Peter Jaffe.
Concert-goers will experience the glorious “Bacchanale” from Samson et Delila by Saint-Saens, the human passion of Bernstein’s Overture to Candide, and the swingable, sing-able tunes of Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess. Be prepared to be swept away to the movies by “Flying,” the theme from ET, the Extraterrestrial, “Themes From 007,” “Aquarius” from Hair, and more.
Come, “Steppin’ Lively“ and join the audience for this immensely popular, end of summer concert, and be a part of the excitement that is the Folsom Lake Symphony!
