Pop Over for Picnic and Pops!

Summer outdoor concerts are a dime a dozen.  Well, not literally.  Admission prices in the three-state area begin at $15 (Lexington) and go up . . . Symphony on the Prairie ($22), Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra ($25) to name a couple.
NOT IN MUNCIE!!  Bring the whole family, share a picnic, dance on the lawn, gaze at the clouds (no rain please!); sip a refreshing, favorite beverage.  It’s all about one last summer celebration before winding down for the school year.
Enjoy the Muncie Symphony Orchestra’s
at the Summer Stage Fest at Minnetrista
Wednesday 22nd August @ 7pm
Can’t make it to the whole concert?  That’s okay! Come when you can, leave when you must.
Now what you have been waiting for….What are you going to hear?
