Pack your lawn chairs and get ready for an afternoon filled with world-class symphonic music. In conjunction with the East Texas Symphony Orchestra and the Town of Tyler, there will be a free concert for the community to come together over Labor Day weekend.
The concert, scheduled for 6pm on Saturday September 4 at Bergfeld Park, will bring together more than 50 ETSO musicians on stage to perform symphonic music before kicking off the 2021-22 concert season in November, “A Season to Celebrate!”
The Labor Day Music Program event will feature festive, patriotic and popular music on Broadway and movie themes.
The Tyler community is encouraged to come early to take advantage of the best viewing and listening opportunities. Guests are encouraged to bring picnic blankets or low-back lawn chairs.
ETSO Board Chairman Dr DM Edwards said he was delighted to bring the orchestra back on stage for the first time since the start of last year.
“We are delighted to bring our musicians back on stage for the first time since February 2020 and are grateful for the opportunity to play for the community at Bergfeld Park,” said Edwards.
From concert halls to classrooms to the community, the East Texas Symphony Orchestra has played a vital role in the cultural life of Tyler and the surrounding area since 1936.
ETSO is a non-profit organization that relies on community support to fund its operations.
ETSO Executive Director Robin Hampton said she hopes “Symphony in the Park” will become an honored tradition bringing families, friends and community together for years to come.
