Stars, Stripes & Symphony
Let freedom and music ring once again. The Conroe Symphony Orchestra, under the direction of its new music director, Ms. Anna-Maria Gkouni, presents a FREE Patriotic Concert, Stars, Stripes & Symphony on July 3 at 7:30 P.M. at Heritage Place in downtown Conroe. Guest artist, Harvey Dunn, of PaintJam will accompany the orchestra with a special artistic tribute to Independence Day. The concert also includes a Super Hero Cape Parade for kids ages 3-10 and a tribute to the Armed Forces.
The CSO will perform a repertoire of patriotic pops and all American composers including community favorites like “America, the Beautiful” arranged by Carmen Dragon
“Stars and Stripes Forever” by John Philip Sousa and the “Armed forces Salute” by Bob Lowden.
Accompanying the orchestra is Guest Artist, Harvey Dunn of PaintJam, painting with a unique twist. Dunn will perform alongside the CSO during America the Beautiful and the Armed Forces Salute. Dunn wields an extraordinary paint brush and with entertaining swift strokes brings an entertaining, and artistic surprise element to the night.
Plus, kids can take part in a Super Hero Cape Parade kicking off the night with a march through Heritage Park alongside Ben Franklin and George Washington. Children ages 3-10 are invited to wear a super hero cape from home or create one at a special activity table, which opens at 7 p.m.
