Free fun: Alabama Symphony Orchestra

Hey Birmingham! Bummed cause you couldn't afford to go to Bonnaroo this weekend? Or that you didn't get your Mumford & Sons tickets in time before their Sunday Atlanta show sold out. (I definitely fall into both categories!) Well, don't stay sad for too long, cause there's some great FREE music going on this whole weekend right here in town.

The Alabama Symphony Orchestra has free performances Friday, Saturday AND Sunday evening at Railroad Park. I've been to several of the symphony's shows and it's always a good time. Especially shows like these that are in the park because you can bring whatever you want. So pack a picnic and bring a blanket or your chairs and get ready for some good tunes.

Here's the lineup:
• Friday June 10th at 8 p.m. - Dvorak's Symphony No. 9 & more
• Saturday June 11th at 8 p.m. - Tchaikovsky's Favorites
• Sunday June 12th at 6 p.m. - Theme songs from films like Harry Potter and The Sound of Music

I'm planning on attending the Sunday evening show, so I hope to see you there. Oh yeah, don't forget the bug spray!
