Event description

Description

Celebrate the total solar eclipse with the Wyoming Symphony Orchestra on August 20th in Washington Park! For the festival weekend, the symphony will present our first ever outdoor concert with special guest violinist, Alexander Markov. Come early to lay out a blanket and enjoy a picnic with your family and friends before the evening blasts off with your favorite sci-fi film scores including the Star Wars Suite, E.T.: Adventures on Earth, selections from Apollo 13 and more! Then experience the virtuosity of Markov as he takes the stage with his custom gold electric violin to perform excerpts from his Rock n’ Roll Concerto with a classical twist. The Casper Children’s Chorale, will delight concert goers with pre-concert entertainment before the symphony begins at 8:00pm. It'll be a sci-phonic spectacular evening under the stars!


FAQs

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

There are no minimum age requirements for the event. We do require an ID to prove that you are over 21 if you would like to consume alcoholic beverages at the event.

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

There will be designated parking areas that will have continuous shuttle service (see map www.wyomingsymphony.org/eclipse.html - COMING SOON)

A local shuttle service from some hotels and camping locations will be available - more information on this closer to the event.
If you need handicapped parking or access, please call the office to arrange: 307-266-1478. There will be limited spaces, but we will make accommodations for all needs!
If you live in the downtown area please consider a nice evening walk to the park!

What can I bring into the event?

- Something to sit on. Please bring your own chairs, blankets and etc. When selecting your seat(s) of choice, please be mindful of other concert goers. If you have a ridiculously tall chair, think about sitting towards the back.

- Sun hats, sunglasses and sunscreen. It will be late August and the sun will bear down until it dips behind the band shell around 7:30pm. For all guests to the Wyoming region – Casper’s elevation is over 5,200 ft which means we are closer to the sun making it easier to burn. Apply sunscreen generously and regularly. We wouldn’t want anyone to have to observe the Eclipse with a sunburn!

- Mosquito Spray. The City of Casper will spray all city parks for bugs prior to the Eclipse weekend, but we recommend that you bring mosquito spray so you enjoy a bite free evening.

- Cash. There are no ATM machines onsite or nearby. You will want to be able to purchase beverages, food from vendors and event merchandise!

- Event goers can bring their own food and beverages for the evening. Please keep in mind that glass containers are not allowed in the park. We will also have onsite food vendors and cash bars selling soft drinks, water, beer, wine and cocktails.

- Games and toys. We want families to have a great experience, so please bring things to entertain and interact with your kids in the park!
