Remember bell-bottom pants, flower power and smiley faces popping up everywhere?  It was the ‘60s, of course. For everyone who was a part of the love generation – or for those who always wished they were – the 2017 “Symphony Under the Stars” will be revisiting those memorable years.  In a large festive tent at Shelter Cove Community Park under the baton of John Morris Russell, patrons can enjoy the music of the ‘60’s, and dinner with friends.  Table groups use the concert themes to inspire costumes, table decorations and dinner menus as they compete for a variety of prizes. What a fun way to get into the spirit of this exciting evening!

Our own Music Director and famed Cincinnati Pops conductor, John Morris Russell, and fabulous Vocalist Michelle Amato and Drummer Steve Morretti will wow you with an evening of memorable music featuring Brown-Eyed Girl, Natural Woman, Soul Bossa Nova, Sergeant Peppers Reprise/Day In The Life and much, much more!

Michelle Amato is a dynamic vocalist whose abilities to convey the deep passion of a lyric, as well as soar effortlessly through the stratosphere are making her one of the most in demand names is music today.  Drummer/percussionist/producer Steve Moretti is a two time Grammy® Award nominee and winner of two Telly Awards.  His performances have been described as “powerful” (World-Herald) and “full of subtle nuance and excitement” (Cleveland Classic).  Steve has had an extensive recording career playing on over 30 nationally released recordings.  He recently made his movie debut playing live in the 2014 Clint Eastwood film, “Jersey Boys.”

Whether you put a table of ten together, design costumes, have your dinner catered or bring your picnic and sit outside under the stars, you will get into the spirit of this always thrilling evening.  Last year’s concert was sold out, so book your table early.  You can provide your own refreshments, but wine, beer, soft drinks and water are available for sale by the League of the Hilton Head Symphony Orchestra.

Tickets for table seating are $85 and $75 and will be available January 10, 2017.  New additional seating options at $50 for concert seating. We’ve also added the popular outside lawn seating at $25.  Bring your lawn chair or blanket, add a picnic dinner and enjoy a great evening!
