The Charleston Symphony Orchestra's top brass and percussion players will celebrate the end of summer with a free concert at Hampton Park Friday. Besides a few works by classic composers like Bach, Mozart, and Gershwin, the orchestra will be performing a few more modern works from Emmy Award-winning composer Anthony DiLorenzo. You might recognize his works from The Simpsons Movie, Toy Story, or any of his countless cues for ESPN, HBO, and ABC, including those catchy College Football intros.
The event also serves as the premiere of the organization's new inflatable band shell, which will be set up near the pond in the center of the park.
Bring chairs but don't worry about the picnic basket, because food trucks including Roti Rolls, Hello My Name is BBQ, Dulce, and Foodie Truck will be in attendance. No alcohol or glass is allowed.
The event begins at 5:30 p.m. on Fri. Sept. 21 and will last about an hour. See the full schedule of works to be performed here.
