A Star Spangled Spectacular June 27 in Warren
Bryan Eckenrode, musical director and conductor of the Warren Philharmonic, will lead the musicians in a concert entitled “Star Spangled Spectacular” at 7 p.m. Thursday, June 27.
This sixth annual event will be held outdoors in downtown Warren on Second Avenue between Liberty Street and Pennsylvania Avenue near the fountain. In the case of rain, the concert will be held at Beaty Warren Middle School.
Joining us for the concert will be the music students from the Warren County Summer Music School performing with the members of the orchestra. The orchestra will have as many as 85 musicians performing together in this community concert. The concert is free of charge; however, donations will be accepted and greatly appreciated as the orchestra is a non-profit organization.
Selections for the concert include “Music from Apollo 13,” “Highlights from West Side Story,” “The Bluebells of Scotland,” “The Sound of Music,” “Selections from My Fair Lady,” “Variations on a Shaker Melody,” “The Ballad of Davey Crockett,” along with patriotic favorites “Washington Post March” and “The Stars and Stripes Forever” and other selections yet to be announced.
