Conner Prairie Amphitheatre

I’ll say it once and I won’t say it…oh, who am I kidding? I know I’ll be saying it again. And again. And again.

Just because the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra is playing outdoors, just because there are some restless kids playing on the hill, just because an occasional airplane flies overhead, no one has granted you the selfish right to gab all through a Symphony on the Prairie concert.

By all means, pop a cork on a bottle of wine or whisper an occasional sweet nothing into your loved one’s ear, but if, from my blanket, I can hear you discussing baseball scores or primary politics over the woodwinds and strings, maybe you should have just stayed home.

With that out of the way, I’m happy to tell you that the Symphony on the Prairie series starts this week with a one-night-only opener featuring music by Aaron Copland, George Gershwin, Samuel Barber and Leonard Bernstein. Details here.
