HYPEd On The Talcott Mountain Music Festival

Join the Social Events Committee at the Talcott Mountain Music Festival for a night to reminisce the music of the late David Bowie. The genius of David Bowie’s innovative and unique, one-of-a-kind sound influenced generations of great music. Hear his music like never before when the Hartford Symphony Orchestra, backed by a full rock band, take you on a symphonic musical odyssey that explores the incredible range of Bowie’s music, including the hits “Space Oddity,” “Changes,” “Under Pressure,” “Heroes,” “Rebel Rebel,” “Fame,” “China Girl” and more! Conducted by Richard Carsey.

HYPE will have a staked area in the lawn so that we can all sit together. Attendees must bring their own chairs/blankets, and food and beverages. We look forward to listening to music and having a picnic with our fellow HYPEsters!

This show is rain or shine! Doors open at 6:30pm with the show starting at 7:30pm.
