Summer Pops series heats up June, welcomes Whole Foods

May 28, 2014

Pack a blanket and picnic basket and head out to Symphony Park for an evening of music as the sun sets.

The Charlotte Symphony's outdoor Summer Pops series opens June 8 and runs four consecutive Sundays, culminating with an Independence Day performance Thursday, July 3 with the Celebrate America concert and fireworks.

Spirited conductor Albert-George Schram will lead the orchestra (and the audience) through all five programs.

A Charlotte tradition since 1983, Summer Pops brings families and friends together in a casual atmosphere. It's such a popular event that the best spots in Symphony Park fill up fast, so plan to arrive early to stake your claim. Many patrons mark their spots and return later, but there are also a number of concertgoers who stay and enjoy an early picnic while they wait.
