Lima Symphony Orchestra to present annual free Patriotic Pops Concerts at Ohio Northern University and Van Wert Fountain Park
The Lima Symphony Orchestra will present their annual free Patriotic Pops concert at Van Wert Fountain Park on Friday, July 5 at 7 p.m. and on the campus of Ohio Northern University on Saturday, July 6 at 7 p.m. Bring the whole family to enjoy these engaging pops performances which will include a variety of well-known standards and patriotic favorites. One of the beloved traditions of this performance is a musical Tribute to the Armed Forces, which honors all veterans in attendance. Both performances will be conducted by Dr. Travis Jürgens who holds the position of Assistant Professor of Music at Ohio Northern University and who just completed his third season as the conductor of the Lima Area Youth Orchestra. Dr. Jürgen’s also serves as the Music Director of the Ohio Northern University Symphony Orchestra.
This year’s performance will feature local soprano soloist Kirsten Osbun–Manley as well as the addition of select students from the Lima Area Youth Orchestra. These players will sit side by side with the principal players of the orchestra, creating an invaluable learning experience for the young musicians. This unique opportunity is part of our ongoing commitment to music education.
Concert attendees are encouraged to come early, bring snacks and their favorite lawn chairs to enjoy a beautiful Ohio summer evening listening to your Lima Symphony Orchestra. These performances are free of charge, made possible by Ohio Northern University and the Van Wert County Foundation. In the case of inclement weather, the Van Wert performance will be held at Niswonger Performing Arts Center and the ONU performance will be held at Kinghorn Center.
