WOW3 Performers:

Families on picnic blankets, couples hand-in-hand, and passerby just out for a stroll with their dogs found a moment of tranquility in The Parkdale Orchestra‘s performance of their June Medley. Led by guest conductor Claudine Gamanche, The Parkdale Orchestra, in-full, shared their masterful takes on the greats; from Beethoven, to Tchaikovsky and Dvořák. Much like the Orchestra, audience members of all ages gathered in mutual admiration of music. The performance and good, community company reminded us what memorable summer nights are made of!
