The Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra will present its first-ever performance at the Apopka Amphitheater on May 13th for the inaugural Symphony Under the Stars, an outdoor concert and dinner event. Conductor Albert George Schram will lead the Philharmonic for the special concert in Apopka featuring musical favorites from the 1950s to the 1990s including music from popular movies. The Philharmonic will be joined by vocalists Michael Andrew and Natalie Cordone.
The family-friendly event encourages community dining, including local vendors, specialty cuisine, cocktails and desserts or picnicking, followed by the orchestra’s performance under the stars at the amphitheater. According to those involved with the event, the orchestra’s performance will feature “amazing music and the whole community-vibe is going to be really nice,” with guests set up on blankets and picnicking. The event is one of many initiatives led by the City of Apopka and Mayor Joe Kilsheimer, in an effort to continue to bring culture, arts and connectivity to residents and visitors alike. Full event details are below.
“The Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra is one of Central Florida’s premier cultural organizations with fans from across the metropolitan region,” Apopka Mayor Joe Kilsheimer said. “Bringing the orchestra to Apopka will bring attention to the Apopka Amphitheater like we’ve never seen before. We’re getting a chance to show how beautiful and how special our amphitheater is to an audience who may not even know we have this wonderful facility.”
