Hike to a Concert by the Pacific Symphony Orchestra in Mission Viejo Saturday, July 27, 2019 4:00 PM

Sunrise to Sunset Hikers

ABOUT THE HIKE: We meetup at 4 PM at the entry to the Norman P. Murray Community Center... bring your lawn chair and picnic items for drop off to secure patio seating adjacent to the Murray for the picnic and "Village on the Green" lawn concert seating.... take a leisurely 90 minutes, two to three mile hike on the Oso Creek Trail... return for a 5:30- 6:30 PM potluck dinner on the (non-reserved) patio adjacent to the Norman P. Murrey Community Center... moving back to the lawn seating at 6:30 PM for pre-concert activities... and the FREE summer concert by the Pacific Symphony Orchestra beginning at 7 PM. This concert is part of the Orchestra's annual "Symphony in the Cities" program. This is a full symphony orchestra performance conducted by maestro Carl St.Clair having a diverse mix of pops and classical music with quality guest artists. The purpose of the hike is to arrive early, get a little exercise, secure our picnic/concert seating, and avoid the traffic and parking crush around the event. The point of the potluck is to create an opportunity for Sunset Hikers to dine and socialize together prior to the concert. This is a symphony orchestra that when playing should be respected with quiet and minimal disruptions from the audience. Please view the link below for additional information on the "Symphony in the Cities" program.
