LANSING, Mich. – The Lansing Symphony is once again the proud recipient of a grant from the City of Lansing, to put on a free Summer Pops Concert on Wednesday, June 4 at 7 p.m. at Adado Riverfront Park. Kicking off the Lansing Parks and Recreation’s “Free Concerts in the Park,” the symphony is leaving it up to the public to vote for their choice. Voting starts Wednesday, March 19 and continues through Monday, April 14. The winner will be announced Wednesday, April 23.

The City of Lansing’s grant, “Sense of Place,” is given to increase the visibility, access and celebration of the arts to the public while impacting the creation of a “sense of place” in the city. This free outdoor summer concert will feature the full Lansing Symphony Orchestra alongside a special guest artist in a program of popular music. Choices this year for the performance are “Music of the ‘60s,” “Off to the Movies” and “Classic Rock All the Way.” Whichever music selection receives the most votes, wins! Voting is unlimited. Hosting the event again this summer is WLMI’s Tim Barron.

This summer the Lansing Symphony will include an option to purchase tickets in a reserved seating area. For $30 per person, one can enjoy dinner, reserved seating and a cash bar. Additional food vendors will be available for the general public.
