The Missoula Symphony will host its annual Symphony in the Park this Sunday, Aug. 11, and it’s a ‘do not miss’ event for Missoula. One of the largest events to be held annually in Caras Park, Symphony in the Park is the admission-free, family-friendly, picnic-in-the-park, cultural event that draws more than 5,000 attendees each year.

Music Director Darko Butorac offers this ‘gift to the community’ as a way to showcase symphony music with a fun musicality that is appealing to all. This year’s program will feature music from Fantasia and Les Miserables, as well as music from the Beatles and other well-known scores.

The concert starts at 7pm, but folks interested in good seating should arrive early in Caras Park to park their chairs and blankets. Food vendors will be on hand to sell dinner, drinks and desserts for all in attendance. Big Dipper Ice Cream will be selling its custom-made “Bachalatte” coffee and dark chocolate chunk ice cream.

Symphony in the Park is a great opportunity to get a feel for symphony music without buying tickets. Don’t miss this one-of-a-kind unique Missoula event. It will not disappoint!
