Symphony in the Cities


Carl St.Clair instructs young conductors at Symphony in the Cities

It's the perfect way to end a lazy summer day:
Pacific Symphony's Symphony in the Cities

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, this year’s concert is led by Music Director Carl St.Clair. Classical KUSC’s radio host Alan Chapman serves as the emce, and the audience is invited to participate in a sing-along of patriotic favorites.

There are 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 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.
