LANSING, Ill. (July 28, 2021) – By the time the Northwest Indiana Symphony Orchestra was ready to perform on Wednesday, July 28, evening temperatures had finally dropped into the low 80s, taking the edge off the humidity that has hung over Lansing for much of the summer. The crowd at Fox Pointe set up lawn chairs and blankets on the cool grass to enjoy an outdoor performance as part of the free Wednesday concert series at Fox Pointe.
The orchestra plays at several other outdoor venues in the area, but according to one of the stage managers, Fox Pointe is the best. “This is awesome,” he said. “It really is.” Not only are the aesthetics elegant, he explained, but the acoustics are perfect, with a stage designed to project sound out to the audience.
The symphony began at 7:30pm, included an intermission, and ended before 10:00pm.
