Akron Symphony Closes Out Summer Concert Series on August 15

August 10, 2021, Akron, OH — The Akron Symphony Orchestra concludes its summer Outside Voices Concert Series at Forest Lodge Park on August 15 at 7:30 p.m.

The free concert, presented in partnership with the City of Akron, will feature the Akron Symphony Virtuosi performing works from Scott Joplin, David Amram, W.C. Handy, John Philip Sousa and more.

Forest Lodge Park is located at 260 Greenwood Avenue in Akron.

Attendees should bring lawn chairs or blankets to sit on during the performance. There will also be food and beverages available for purchase from Kait’s Carts, our exclusive food truck partner for the concert, so be sure to stop by to grab a bite to eat before or during the performance.

The Outside Voices Concert Series has been presented throughout Akron to share the music of under-represented composers who are “outside” of the standard repertoire, along with numerous audience favorites.

While the concert is free, we ask that those planning to attend RSVP by filling out a brief form on the concert page at As our way of saying “thank you,” everyone who RSVPs will be entered into a drawing for two tickets to an ASO Classic Series concert at E.J. Thomas Performing Arts Hall during the 2021-22 season.
