FORT WAYNE—The school year might be done, but the Fort Wayne Philharmonic is just getting warmed up. The Phil’s 2013 Summer Season brings a wide variety of music to the Foellinger Theatre for four great concerts, and thanks to a generous donor, every concert will be free to the public. They include:
• Patriotic Pops kicks off The Phil’s Summer Series on June 23. This Fort Wayne tradition begins the area’s Independence Day celebrations with a line-up of patriotic songs that celebrate everything that’s great about our country, including Yankee Doodle, the 1812 Overture, and a tribute to the veterans of our Armed Services.
• I Love a Piano, July 6
• 2013/14 Masterworks Preview, July 27
• Flamenco Fire, Aug. 3
All concerts will be held at the Foellinger Theatre in Franke Park and begin at 7:30 p.m. Although Summer Series concerts are free to the public, a general admission ticket is required for entry and concerts are expected to sell out. Special VIP packages are also available for $20, which includes prime general admission seating to all four Summer Series concerts.
Tickets for The Phil’s 2013 Summer Season concerts are available in advance by calling The Phil’s box office at (260) 481-0777. Tickets for Patriotic Pops are available online at www.fwphil.org, and tickets for the rest of the series will be available online in the near future.
