RSO Returns to Lasdon Park on July 24th!

You asked for it... and now you've got it!  The RSO (or at least a portion of the RSO) is returning to Lasdon Park for their Music in the Park Series!  

Join the Ridgefield Symphony Orchestra Brass Quintet on Friday, July 24th, 6:30 pm, for a performance at Lasdon Park, 2610 Amawalk Road (Route 35) in Katonah.

The performance will include a potpourri of musical delights- light classical and popular favorites- as they can only sound when performed by virtuoso brass. 

Admission to the concert is only $5.00; beer, wine, food, varied snacks and ice cream will be available throughout the entire evening.

Gates open at 5:30 pm; bring your blanket, lawn chairs, or grab a table around the patio. Kick back, relax and enjoy world-class music by our very own musicians of the RSO!  

Please note that there is no rain date.  The concert will be cancelled in the event of inclement weather.  For updated information, visit the Lasdon Park website at www.lasdonpark.org or call 914-864-7268.
