Landmarks Orchestra throws a party on the Esplanade

(Michael Dwyer)

Have you ever dreamed of conducting an orchestra or rocking out on the bassoon?

Then visit the DCR’s Hatch Memorial Shell for a Season Tune-Up party on Wednesday, July 10. Live out your musical fantasies with violins, cellos, trumpets, trombones, flutes, clarinets, bassoons, saxophones, snare drums, and a glockenspiel. Step up to a “maestro zone” to practice conducting to orchestral recordings. Or just chill with face-painting and leave music to the Everett High School band, which will perform classics such as the 1812 Overture.

Then frolic at a play space from Knucklebones, take a yoga class with OrigiNation Cultural Arts Center, or try STEM activities at a tent hosted by the Museum of Science.
