Just last night, I attended an outdoor symphony performed by the Charlotte Symphony Orchestra. The theme that was played tonight was Jazz. This outdoor symphony has been a family tradition for several years.
About at 5, I helped my dad lay out the tarp to reserve our space later. For the symphony, we basically are having dinner picnic style. Everyone we invited brought something and we tend to share food. On top of the tarp, we always lay down a blanket to sit on and we also bring chairs as well.
Part of the night was spent dancing whenever the composer asked us to. I do not remember all the times of the different pieces. But one was chattanooga choo choo. Another, which relates to this blog, was a series of pieces from the musical, Chicago. The Chicago pieces mainly focused on the song “All That Jazz”.
This symphony always bring a big group of people. In total, my family and friends ended up being eight people. Other nights that are to come in this symphony are Star Wars, Broadway, and Fourth of July.
