Riverside concert in Ottawa

Posted by wlpo on August 12, 2009

A large barge docked at Allen Park in Ottawa isn’t carrying grain. It’s carrying an international symphony orchestra.
American Wind Symphony Orchestra, a traveling group of young professional musicians is putting on a free concert at 7:30pm. The barge quickly transforms into an orchestra pit allowing the group to play all along the river. It’s the same group that played a show in Morris a few days ago. They last played in Ottawa in 2000.
If you plan on going, bring blankets or lawn chairs.
