New this year, the Hilton Head Symphony Orchestra has been performing “Picnic & Pops” Concerts at Shelter Cove Park. There are two concerts left, on July 15 and 29.

These events are the start of our new Picnic & Pops Program under our recently acquired Performance Shell.
     On July 15, the orchestra will perform BRAVO BRASS!  The HHSO’s resident brass quintet, featuring trumpets William Denton, and Paul Wesley Lott, French horn Stephanie Furry, and trombones Carl Polk and Mark Sellman will play music from four centuries, spanning from the Renaissance to the modern era, as the quintet showcases a variety of styles from Baroque counterpoint to Ragtime to Pop-Rock.  The players will also be borrowing from the library of audience-pleasing arrangements by the world-renowned Canadian Brass.
      July 29 will feature an evening of popular Broadway plays , BROADWAY TONIGHT! Under the baton of visiting conductor, Manny Alvarez. You’ll hear great music from “Guys and Dolls,”  “South Pacific,” “Phantom of the Opera,” “Chicago,” “West Side Story,” and one of America’s finest baritones, Hal McIntosh. It will be an evening to remember!
     The Orchestra is grateful to the Town of Hilton Head for their support of the new Performance Shell, which will made available for use to other local organizations.  They’re very excited to be able to offer summer performances, and present Hilton Head with yet another cultural experience.
   Please join the HHSO on July 15 and 29 and celebrate “under the stars” !  Tickets for the upcoming “Picnic & Pops” July events will be available on site the evening of the performance.  
Bring a family picnic, your own chairs or blankets, and enjoy a concert in the park. Admission is $20 (children under 12 free). Gates open at 6:30, hour-long concert begins at 8 pm.
