Spokane Symphony Labor Day Concert

When: Mon., Sept. 4, 6 p.m. 2017

It’s the last three-day weekend of summer, so you might as well make it count. The Spokane Symphony has been turning local parks into makeshift concert halls on Labor Day weekend for years, and the orchestra will perform for free at Liberty Lake’s Pavillion Park on Saturday and at Comstock Park on Monday. The evening programs include some of the most iconic symphonic pieces ever composed, including works by George Handel and Leonard Bernstein, selections from two world-famous operas (George Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess and Georges Bizet’s Carmen) and even John Williams’ “Throne Room Suite” from Star Wars. Both evenings will be bookended by performances of two undeniably great works — “The Star-Spangled Banner” and Tchaikovsky’s “1812 Overture.”

Sat, Sept. 2 at 6 pm at Pavillion Park, Liberty Lake • Mon, Sept. 4 at 6 pm at Comstock Park, Spokane • Free • spokanesymphony.org • 624-1200
