Symphony on the Land returns to Bald Hill Farm Sunday
Jun 14, 2018 – Albany Democrat Herald
Symphony on the Land, sponsored by the Greenbelt Land Trust and the Corvallis-OSU Symphony Society, returns to Bald Hill Farm 5 p.m. Sunday, June 17.
This year’s program includes a lineup of musicians spanning genres from classical to jazz and big band. The program features local folk songwriter Creighton Lindsay, the Delgani String Quartet, and the regional Chintimini Brass Quintet.
Two finale numbers will unite the musicians for a collective rendition of the traditional tunes “Who’s Knocking at My Window” and “Hunting the Buffalo.”
Jessica McDonald of Greenbelt, the event’s coordinator, says, bringing nature, music, and people together is the goal of Symphony on the Land.
“We envisioned a program that inspires concertgoers to appreciate the world at the feet and leave with a stronger sense of place and community,” reflects McDonald.
Given the natural setting, many attendees opt to walk or bicycle into the event, but a free shuttle is available at the Benton County Fairgrounds.
Tickets are $20 general admission, $15 for Greenbelt members and students. Youth 16 and under will be admitted free.
Proceeds benefit the Greenbelt Land Trust, a nonprofit organization working on conservation initiatives throughout the Willamette Valley.
