In a letter by SS Symphony League Board member Linda Galligher,

The League has planned this 29th annual event as the kick-off for summer community events. The Symphony League’s Board is very excited and expects a great performance and good attendance. This is the 29th year since we started the annual event, which has drawn thousands to the Sulphur Springs downtown area. The orchestra will play favorite patriotic staples along with some new American selections. We are pleased that Conductor Dr. Doug Bakenhus will again join us to direct the returning professional musicians, some who have played at every concert, and others who are new to us.  Soloists will include local singer Della Cleveland and her daughter Trelandra Miles. Plan to make lasting memories will be made as you experience this unique community event.
