Goodyear Ballpark hosts the Phoenix Symphony Pops Spring Concert

 

 

GOODYEAR, ARIZ. (March 29, 2010) The Phoenix Symphony Pops at the Goodyear Ballpark concert pays homage to America's favorite pastime at 7 p.m., Saturday, April 24.

 

This popular family event, presented by the West Valley Arts Council and performed by The Phoenix Symphony, will be held at Goodyear Ballpark, 1933 S. Ballpark Way.

 

This year's theme, Take Me Out to the Ballgame, features selections from popular baseball-themed movies including "Field of Dreams" and "The Natural," as well as popular songs "Say Hey," "Willie Mays" and an audience sing-along rendition of "Take Me Out to the Ballgame."

 

Gates open at 4:30 p.m. and The Phoenix Symphony plays at 7 p.m. General admission tickets for stadium seating are $15 for adults, $10 Goodyear residents (with ID) and $10 for students (with ID). Children 10 and under are $5. VIP tickets are $75 and include special club seating and a buffet dinner.

 

The Phoenix Symphony and the West Valley Arts Council have been bringing pops music to the West Valley for more than 15 years. This event has become a community tradition and offers a unique opportunity for audiences of all ages to experience the symphony in a non-traditional setting. This year's program promises to be a hit with music lovers and sports fans alike.

 

Rounding out the afternoon are activities including a pre-concert performance by the Symphonic Winds and a children's arts and crafts area. Families may picnic in designated areas or purchase concessions from ballpark vendors. No alcohol, glass containers or pets may be brought into the event.

 

The event is presented by the West Valley Arts Council and sponsored by the City of Goodyear, Cancer Treatment Centers of America, Grand Canyon University, Gloria King and APS.
