SCENIC TOUR, DINNER, and SYMPHONY UNDER THE STARS
Come and join us for a short scenic tour through beautiful Southern Chester County, followed by dinner at the Stone Barn, and ending with a delightful Symphony Under the Stars by the Kennett Symphony at the Longwood Gardens Open Air Theater.
We will start at 2:30pm at Unionville High School, take a scenic tour with (maybe) some surprises along the way, arrive at the Stone Barn at about 4:00pm for cocktails and/or wine, dinner at 5:00pm, and the concert at Longwood at 7:30pm.
The concert program is quite exciting:
• The Lark Ascending – Ralph Vaughan Williams.
• Selections from The Planets – Gustav Holst.
• Star Wars Suite – John Williams.
Enjoy a beautiful summer day outdoors. The Lark Ascending is a piece that is indebted to English folk music that portrays nostalgia for a simpler time. It will be performed by Kennett Symphony Instrumental Competition Winner Kristy Chen, violin, currently a student at the prestigious new England Conservatory of Music. The Planets was inspired by the astrological significance of the planets and is the perfect piece to hear under a night sky. The concert closes with John William’s legendary score for Star Wars, an instantly recognizable work that hearkens back to old Hollywood film scores.
Details, including price, will be available soon.
