Symphony in the Cities

Pacific Symphony's Symphony in the Cities...

The perfect way to end a lazy summer day!


Pack a picnic, grab a lawn chair or blanket and gather the family for an evening of free music and outdoor summer fun! Now a long-standing summer tradition, Symphony in the Cities (SITC) brings thousands of people together for great music and entertainment in local parks each year. With a potpourri of popular classics, pop tunes and patriotic tunes, these concerts are led by Music Director Carl St.Clair and the audience is invited to participate in a sing-along of patriotic favorites.

A pre-concert Musical Playground features many interactive and hands-on activities for children, including instrument making, a drum circle, an instrument petting zoo, and an opportunity to meet the musicians. And—back each year by popular demand—kids have the chance to learn how to conduct with Maestro St.Clair and later help lead the orchestra in Sousa’s “Hands Across the Sea” during the concert.

Dates and locations for the next SITC performances to be announced.
