Set in the lovely outdoor theater at Quiet Waters Park, the annual Lexus Pops in the Park concert features the ASO’s full orchestra performing a fun and festive program for all ages.

The Annapolis Symphony Orchestra is led by renowned Music Director José-Luis Novo who is in his eight season with the orchestra.  The Lexus Pops in the Park is generously supported by the Baltimore/Annapolis Lexus Dealers Association.  Additional key support is provided by CFG Community Bank.  This support enables the ASO to offer this concert at no charge to the community.

This special concert draws over 4,000 people each year, and plays an important part in the ASO’s mission to produce, present and promote memorable symphonic music that increases awareness, enjoyment, and appreciation of music for all ages throughout the region.  “I love this concert! It is the perfect example of how music can really bring a community together.

For some, this concert is their only opportunity to experience a live symphony concert.says Katharene Snavely, ASO Executive Director.  “The audience is diverse with families, couples, groups of friends and individuals of all ages from racially and economically diverse backgrounds.  It’s a casual outdoor event that brings the whole community together for a fun and relaxing evening of professional musical entertainment.  As the leading cultural arts organization in the area, the Annapolis Symphony Orchestra is thrilled to be able to offer this exciting performance to everyone and to do so at no charge.”
