Description: The Charlottesville Symphony at the University of Virginia performs “Pops at the Paramount” on Saturday, June 3, 7:30pm, at the historic Paramount Theater on Charlottesville’s Downtown Pedestrian Mall.

Guest Conductor Erin Freeman conducts the orchestra in a blockbuster program titled Summer Lovin’ that includes Leroy Anderson’s “Last Rose of Summer,” Robert Wendel’s arrangement of “In the Good Old Summertime,” hits from “Hamilton: An American Musical” and “Hello, Dolly!,” a medley from “Grease” and a Duke Ellington 100th birthday tribute to Ella Fitzgerald.
