For more than 15 years, Winter Garden residents — and of adjacent cities — have been able to enjoy a beautiful classical music concert at the Evening at the Pops event hosted by The Rotary Club of Winter Garden, in partnership with the city of Winter Garden Saturday, March 25, at Newton Park.
The Space Coast Symphony Orchestra performed several tunes that have overcome the barrier of time and still today, are classics to the ears. Some of these were classical music populars such as Pyotr Tchaikovsky’s Marche Slave, and some Broadway classics such as Chicago, West Side Story, The Phantom of the Opera and The Sound of Music.
Families, friends and attendees enjoyed the beautiful afternoon and evening by setting up picnic stations, tents and munching on their snacks.
Children were invited to the stage to learn how to conduct under the instruction of SCSO’s Artistic Director and Conductor Aaron Collins and were left in charge to lead the orchestra during the last minutes of one of the musical pieces.
