Symphony Under the Stars: Symphonic Soul

A 22-year outdoor musical tradition returns this year to the majestic oaks of Palmetto Bluff.

Conductor John Morris Russell and the Hilton Head Symphony Orchestra will bring the music of Ray Charles, Gladys Knight, Stevie Wonder and Motown at Symphony Under the Stars: Symphonic Soul at Montage Palmetto Bluff on Oct. 3 and 4. The performances will also feature Deas Guyz.

The night of music is coupled with dinner. Seating options include tables of 10, concert or table seating. Table groups use the concert themes to inspire costumes, table decorations, or dinner menus as they compete for prizes.

Whether you put a table of 10 together, design costumes, have dinner catered or bring a picnic and sit outside under the stars, it’s easy to get into the spirit of this popular event. Bring your own refreshments or purchase wine, beer, soft drinks and water, made available by the League of the Hilton Head Symphony Orchestra.

The October performances are the first of two Symphony Under the Stars concerts this season. Another event will be April 3 and 4, 2018, on Hilton Head Island. Tickets for the spring show go on sale Nov. 1.
