Symphony Under the Stars
April 17th - 8:00pm
Symphony Under the Stars is a free concert being performed at UCF. The program comprises two pieces, Delibes’ "Coppélia Suite" and Franck’s "Symphony in D-Minor," played without intermission. Dancers from Theatre UCF will join for the first piece. They will perform a movement piece with kites in the Reflecting Pond.
A team of creative directors from the theatre department has been working with community professionals, graduate students, alumni, dancers, and designers to create what they call a “Site-Specific Theatrical Event: Chance Choreography with Performance Objects.” The choreography includes 20 performers made up of professionals and students who will incorporate dance puppetry and objects in their site-specific performance. The annual concert occurs outside for two reasons. The first is lack of an on-campus performance hall big enough to accommodate the symphony and patrons. The second is that this symphony exists for the community.
Guests are invited to bring chairs, blankets, and picnic baskets. In the event of inclement weather, the concert will be held in the Pegasus Ballroom in the Student Union.
Parking on the UCF campus will be free for patrons from 7 p.m.–10 p.m. (Visitors parking in 24-hour reserved spots will be ticketed.)
Symphony Under the Stars is Thursday, April 17, 2014 at 8 p.m.
The Symphony Under the Stars concert will be held at the Reflecting Pond on UCF's campus.
