The Spokane Symphony continues the tradition of summer evening concerts on the lawn at Arbor Crest Wine Cellars' Cliff House Estate on Wednesday, August 7 *change of venue due to air quality, now at the Fox Theater 1001 West Sprague Avenue, in Spokane, beginning at 7:30 PM* and Wednesday, August 14 at 7:00 p.m. with Sunset Symphonies. (Doors open at 5:00 pm—come early to find a good spot for a picnic supper with your lawn chair and blanket.)
There is a different music program for each of the concerts, and it includes a mixture of blockbusters by classical music masters and works by contemporary composers. Under the baton of Resident Conductor Morihiko Nakahara, the Symphony will perform while concertgoers picnic on the grass or in the tent, sip Arbor Crest's award-winning wines or beer on tap, and relish the stunning sunset views.
