The South Bend Symphony Orchestra concludes the 90th Season with the Shein Trust Community Series season finale “Symphony Under the Stars” on Friday, June 30, at 8 p.m., in beautiful Howard Park. Under the baton of guest conductor David Lockington, the South Bend Symphony Orchestra will once again captivate audiences with patriotic tunes, tributes to the armed forces, and popular songs performed by the South Bend Civic’s Guys and Dolls cast. This family-friendly concert concludes with fireworks and is free thanks to Shein Trust’s generous support.

“The Symphony is excited to be at Howard Park, a perfect venue for a family-friendly night of music and fun,” shared Symphony Executive Director Justus Zimmerman. “Our guests from South Bend Civic Theatre are sure to delight, and Venues Parks and Arts will ensure the fireworks are not to be missed!”

Attendees are encouraged to bring a blanket or lawn chairs and relax under the stars while enjoying the music. Food and beverages will be available for purchase from local food vendors (A Bite With Mee, Smothered and Covered Fries, Tattoo Taco by Hacienda, Fancy Delights), and a fireworks display will light up the sky to usher in the Fourth of July holiday weekend.

This free community concert is made possible through the generous support of Shein Trust, with additional support from Victoria Garrett. In addition, this concert is made possible by partnerships with Howard Park, Venue Parks and Arts, and South Bend Civic Theatre.
