Music on the Green

June 9 @ 7:00 pm

Ottumwa Symphony Orchestra invites you to an evening of great music under the open sky. Music on the Green, an event that has become a favorite for attendees, will be held Sunday, June 9th at 7:00 pm on the Marge Dodd Stage at Indian Hills Community College. Jim Clingman and Sarah Johnson, both local to the Ottumwa area, will be featured vocalists, and Associate Conductor David Sharp will take up his baton for the event once again to lead the musicians.

Attendees are encouraged to bring a lawn chair and picnic supper to enjoy as the orchestra plays. Sharp shares, “Every year, I try to bring a variety of musical sounds to our diverse audience, and this year will be no different. I have arranged most of the music for this concert. This year’s performance will feature a concert overture, swing and Latin tunes, show tunes, music from television series, and hits by Simon and Garfunkel and Frank Sinatra.”

Bring a picnic, your favorite beverage, a comfortable chair, and, of course, your friends and family. In case of rain or inclement weather, the concert will be moved indoors to the Hellyer Student Life Center directly next to the stage. In the event of cancellation, the public will be notified by 3:00 pm. There is no charge for admission, though a free-will offering will be taken.

This event has been generously sponsored by Ottumwa Regional Legacy Foundation.
