WHAT: “Strike Up The Band”. Two free outdoor programs of light classical music
WHEN: Saturday, September 4th at 7:00pm and Sunday, September 5th at 5:30pm
WHERE: On the iconic Tower Lawn at San Jose State University, San Fernando and 4th Streets in downtown San Jose.
SHORT BYTE: San Jose’s premiere professional classical music organizations team up to present a free outdoor musical extravaganza to celebrate Labor Day weekend, and to welcome Live Music back to our community. These 75 to 90-minute programs will feature full symphony orchestra, operatic soloists, and the piano instrumental magic of San Jose’s very own Jon Nakamatsu, Gold Medalist of the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition.
The programs, under the baton of conductor Peter Jaffe, will present the music of Gershwin, Sibelius, Mozart, Puccini, Brahms, Tchaikovsky and more. The beautiful Tower Lawn located behind the Martin Luther King Jr. Library at San Jose State University offers an inspiring and welcoming setting for all ages. Chairs will be provided for the event (as will bottled water), but attendees are invited to bring their own lawn chairs, blankets, and refreshments,
Making it Safe to Enjoy Music Again: This is a beautiful large outdoor environment, but we do ask that attendees be vaccinated and/or wear masks when not eating or drinking.
Disclaimer: Please double check event information with the event organizer as events can be canceled, details can change after they are added to our calendar, and errors do occur.
