Sounds of Summer

July 27, 2013 at 7 pm
A lively collection of beloved light classics includes highlights from the immortal Carmen, Rimsky-Korsakov's frenetic Flight of the Bumblebee, and "Summer" from both Vivaldi's Four Seasons and Piazzolla's  Four Seasons of Buenos Aires, featuring Associate Concertmaster Christina Mok. The orchestra will transport us to the English countryside, the stormy coast of Finland, and a magical forest in Fairyland, before closing with selections from Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition. Join us for an evening of tuneful favorites that will have you humming.  

The Wild Wild West Ice Cream Night!

July 28, 2013 Sunday 5:30 pm
Our first ice-cream social features the music of classic Hollywood Westerns. Remember stars like Clint Eastwood and Roy Rogers, adventures like High Noon and Shane, the soaring themes of The Cowboys, Once Upon a Time in the West, The Magnificent Seven?  Our irresistible, quick-draw Maestro Jaffe will lead the orchestra in the larger-than-life music of cattle drives, the open road, the wild prairie, outlaws and slow-spoken heroes, and captivate us all. And a bonus: big baritone Ralph Cato, singing a burly Rawhide! Come early for free ice cream before the concert - perfect for a warm summer afternoon.

Big Bad Voodoo Daddy

August 2, 2013,  Friday 7 pm
 Grab the chance to see this electrifying contemporary Swing Revival band live and free! From '40s swing to Cab Calloway, boogie woogie to New Orleans blues, its rhythm section is beat only by its horns - or vice versa. "Go Daddy-O," "Mr. Pinstripe Suit," "The Jumpin' Jive" - it doesn't get better than this.    

Simply Sinatra

August 3, 2013, Saturday 7 pm
Steve Lippia leads a tribute to the timeless music of Frank Sinatra. Hear all your favorites by this Vegas headliner, whose concerts sell out from NYC's Birdland and the Boston Pops to Europe and South America. But here in San Jose there's no charge; just bring a picnic and enjoy.
