Picnic & Pops: Broadway is Back!
Waterbury Symphony Orchestra presents Broadway is Back! The Picnic & Pops summer concert will be the 31st concert in the WSO Picnic & Pops series, honoring a long tradition in Northwest Connecticut. This concert will be a family-friendly symphonic experience, set in the backdrop of Woodbury’s beautiful Hollow Park. Led by Music Director & Conductor, Leif Bjaland, the program will showcase hit music from Broadway shows like Sound of Music, Mary Poppins, 42nd Street, and Kiss Me Kate, featuring some of Broadway’s most iconic hits.
This year’s performance is especially poignant as the Waterbury Symphony was unable to present this concert in 2020 due to the pandemic. “I have always loved performing at Hollow Park. It’s a tradition that goes back to 1989! The popularity of this concert, combined with fabulous music and a gorgeous setting, provide the WSO with the opportunity to reconnect with our community and our traditions,” explains Leif Bjaland, WSO Music Director & Conductor.
Seating for this event is general admission, outdoor lawn seating. Guests are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and/or blankets and picnics are welcome. Please be aware that all State Covid-19 guidelines must be followed. Unvaccinated individuals will be encouraged to wear a mask. Hand sanitizing stations will be available. Don’t forget the hand sanitizer and sunscreen!
Admission: Adults $25, Ages 12-17 $10, Children under 12 are free.
