Virginia Symphony in concert at First Flight High School last year.

It’s been a cool spring, that’s for sure, but hopefully the weather will warm up enough for a special outdoor concert treat. Saturday, April 28, the Outer Bank Forum will be binging the Virginia Symphony to Roanoke Island Festival Park in Manteo.

In case it rains, the First Flight High School auditorium is the backup plan—and it’s not a bad place at all for live music, but sitting out on the lawn in front of the Pavilion with Roanoke Sound framed behind the stage will make for a magical day of music.

The program has not yet been announced, but the Virginian Symphony has been the traditional close for the Outer Banks Forum’s season for a number of years, and the music and musicians never disappoint.

Last year the symphony’s performance featured a full array of American classics—Sousa marches, the Star Spangled Banner and more. This year? Who knows. The symphony has been featuring a lot of Star Wars music, but we’ll know when the they play the first note what they will be performing.

The long range forecast looks good at this time. The concert begins at 3:00 p.m. and if the forecast holds there will be sunshine and temperatures in the mid 60s.
