Fox Valley Mayors in Concert with the Philharmonic ~ 4:30pm

June 28, 2015

Free Admission

Bring your lawn chairs or blankets to relax and enjoy the concert!

The Fox Valley Academy and Philharmonic will perform its annual American Pops Summer Symphony Concert at 4:30pm on Sunday, June 28th at the Peg Bond Pavilion in Batavia.

The Philharmonic welcomes back the mayors of Aurora, Batavia, Geneva, and St. Charles to conduct the American classic, Stars and Stripes Forever. Residents of all Fox Valley towns are encouraged to attend the concert and cast their votes for their favorite Fox Valley mayor. The winner takes home the coveted “Golden Baton Award”. The concert will include other favorites, such as Tchaikovsky’s “1812 Overture” (to be performed with real cannons), Copland’s “Hoe Down”, and Morton Gould’s “Variations on When Johnny Comes Marching Home”. The performance will also include a medley of the Armed Forces Service tunes in which the Philharmonic invites veterans, and family members in the audience to stand and be recognized for proudly serving our country. As an added bonus, the Fox Valley Academy’s ensembles will also present a “Pre-Concert” performance of American folk tunes at 4:00pm in the Pavilion.

The Academy and Philharmonic invite the audience to bring a picnic dinner or enjoy Aliano’s pizza, light refreshments and water available for purchase to support the Academy’s ensembles and outreach education programs. There is plenty of open space to bring lawn chairs or a blanket. Admission is free, but donations are welcomed.
