The Farmington Valley Symphony Orchestra will bring the full orchestra together for the first time in 15 months for an outdoor concert with live audience on the lawn at First Church, 75 Main St., Farmington on Saturday, June 19, 6:00 p.m.  The 45-minute program, conducted by Music Director Jonathan Brennand, will include Music for Horns from “Lohengrin,” Triumphal March from “Aida” for Brass, Overture to “H.M.S Pinafore” and Broadway Highlights from “West Side Story” and “The Sound of Music.”
 
There will be no admission fee for this first concert of the full orchestra since the Covid 19 pandemic began.  But all are encouraged to bring a donation of non-perishable food for the Farmington Food Pantry at First Church Congregational which has fulfilled so many requests for emergency food needs during the past year.
 
Those attending should bring lawn chairs or a blanket and are asked to observe social distancing between groups and the wearing of masks for those not yet vaccinated.  Parking is available on Church Street at the Barney Library, next to the campus of the church.  The grounds will be open at 5:00 p.m.   
 
Plans are being finalized for a second outdoor concert in July.  Watch for updates! 

As the FVSO looks forward to the resumption of its concert schedule later in the year, continuing contributions are encouraged to help sustain its operations.  Donations may be made online here, or may be sent to “FVSO,” 222 Main St., #273, Farmington, CT 06032.
