FORT WAYNE PHILHARMONIC TO PERFORM AT CITIZENS SQUARE ON JAN. 27
January 17, 2017 - The Fort Wayne Philharmonic will inaugurate a new, free, around town series of concerts called Live at Lunch, beginning on Thursday January 26, 2017 at the Sweetwater Sound Cafeteria, and Friday January 27, 2017 at Citizens Square. Both performances begin at 12:00 noon. Conducting the concert will be the Philharmonic’s assistant conductor Caleb Young. Subsequent concerts will be announced at a later date.
Live at Lunch is similar to the Philharmonic’s former pop-up series called Random Acts of Music. Designed to reach people in their own workplaces or convenient public settings, the experience is casual and relaxed. Audiences are free to sample part of the hour-long concert or stop by for just a few minutes. Live at Lunch brings the great classics right to the public, on their own terms.
