The Hamilton Parks Conservancy announces the premiere of The Conservancy Series, four programs bringing live entertainment to the RiversEdge stage during the summer of 2016.
The series begins 6 p.m. June 26 as the Hamilton-Fairfield Symphony Orchestra and Chorale presents "POPS! Goes the Symphony." The orchestra will perform selections from some of America's most beloved music, from Leonard Bernstein to George Gershwin, including music from the movies "Jaws" and "Indiana Jones." As a special treat, soloists from the Chorale will perform vignettes from "Oklahoma!" in costume. This event sponsored by MillerCoors.
Everybody in town knows the Klaberheads from their annual appearances at the Hamilton Oktoberfest, but their chops extend far beyond oom-pah, and they will perform 7 p.m. July 30 in a Big Band format. The Franz Klaber Orchestra has been entertaining local audiences for over 80 years, and this third-generation iteration under the direction Erika Klaber promises the same fun and surprises provided by her father and grandfather. Sponsored by Dr. and Mrs. Kenneth Wehr.
The Cincinnati Shakespeare Festival returns to RiversEdge for its popular Free Shakespeare in the Park Series. This time, they're bringing the classic tragedy "Macbeth," a play full of political intrigue, family drama--and ghosts! The command performance will be 7 p.m., August 17. Sponsored by an anonymous Friend of the Parks.
The Conservancy Series season ends September 17 with the return of Signs of Life - The Essence of Pink Floyd, back by popular demand. A Signs of Life show captures the music, mood, emotion and excitement of a Pink Floyd concert. Eight talented musicians and a production team are dedicated to reproducing the vast and spacious Pink Floyd "essence" – arguably one of the most musically accurate Pink Floyd tributes anywhere. Their shows use authentic sound effects, engaging video and dynamic lighting effects to recreate the classic Pink Floyd feel. Showtime will be 8 p.m. Sponsored by Jim & Sue Fitton, Gerry Hammond, and the Courtyard By Mariott.
