The program for this concert will only be finalized moments before the players step out onto the stage, or will be left to the whim of the audience. But there will be a merry measure of dance music (dancing in the aisles is encouraged), classical favorites (would-be conductors may try their hand at leading the ensemble), and lyrical standards (hummers will be tolerated). In short, a fun evening of music to be experienced and really enjoyed. And, of course, a deliciously titanic gustatory treat to round out the evening!
