Stroll through downtown Harrisburg in support of the Harrisburg Symphony’s
educational programs. The Symphony Stroll is a “progressive” music event that allows patrons to experience three different restaurant settings – all within walking distance (so you may stroll!)
Guests may visit all three restaurant locations at their leisure throughout the afternoon. At each location, guests will receive appetizers and one complimentary drink per restaurant (wine, beer, or well drink), in addition to enjoying music provided by Harrisburg Symphony musicians.
The Symphony Stroll will take place at the following locations:
Stock’s on 2nd
(211 N. 2nd Street)
features Jonathan Ragonese (saxophone), HSO’s Peter Paulsen (bass) and Tim Brey (keyboard) treating strollers to jazz classics and creative improvisation.
(231 North Street)
features The DeAngelo Trio performing Gypsy jazz, a wonderfully infectious style of music played in smoky Parisian jazz clubs and swanky dance halls during the 1930s and ‘40s. The trio features father Cory DeAngelo on rhythm guitar and his two sons, Joe DeAngelo on violin and Sam DeAngelo on melody guitar. Joe DeAngelo is a member of the violin section of our Harrisburg Symphony Youth Orchestra.
(234 N. 2nd Street)
will feature the Hot House Jazz Band. HSO Musician Eric Henry (tuba) and band mates Jim Smith (tenor guitar/banjo) and Paul Butler (clarinet) perform the Dixieland style of jazz. Their combination is unusual, in that they have replaced an upright bass with a tuba. The band plays mostly jazz standards, including songs by such greats as Duke Ellington and Ferdinand “Jelly Roll” Morton.
The Education Committee of the HSO uses a portion of Symphony Stroll proceeds for the orchestra’s “Musicians in the Schools” program, which includes clinics, demonstrations, and performances in area schools.
