The Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra’s annual concert at the MacAllister Center for the Performing Arts at Garfield Park was held June 22. Despite threatening skies earlier in the day, the orchestra took the stage on a warm, sunny evening. But because of impending weather the fireworks show was postponed; a new date has not been set.
Among those enjoying the concert were (from left) Dan and Ginny O’Brien and Dale and Joanna Weiler. Both couples said they love the patriotic music. The Weilers are graduates of Manual High School, and Joanna retired from the ISO’s administrative offices.
In a related story, Friends of Garfield Park and Prime 47 Indianapolis, a swanky steak and seafood house at 47 S. Pennsylvania St., are teaming July 5-9 in a fundraising effort for the park’s youth programs. The restaurant will earmark 20 percent of all sales to Friends when people mention the promotion. Reservations can be arranged by calling 624-0720.
“We are thrilled to support Garfield Park and the Friends,” said managing partner Brad Shaffer. “I have been a longtime supporter of the park and just hope we have a great showing of support in July.”
