If you live in an apartment in Charlotte, NC you can Celebrate a beloved Charlotte summer tradition. The Charlotte Symphony returns to Symphony Park for the Summer Pops outdoor concert series each Sunday in June. Pack a picnic and enjoy symphonic sounds that span classics from Broadway musicals to melodies from Mendelssohn. Or see Jazz at the Bechtler and celebrate music.
Summer Pops Concert Series – June 8-29
Pack a picnic and head out to Symphony Park for an evening of music as the sun sets. The Charlotte Symphony's outdoor Summer Pops series runs four consecutive Sundays, culminating with an Independence Day performance Thursday, July 3 with the Celebrate America concert and fireworks. Spirited conductor Albert-George Schram will lead the orchestra (and the audience) through all five programs. A Charlotte tradition since 1983, Summer Pops brings families and friends together in a casual atmosphere. It's such a popular event that the best spots in Symphony Park fill up fast, so plan to arrive early to stake your claim. Many patrons mark their spots and return later, but there are also a number of concertgoers who stay and enjoy an early picnic while they wait.
