As part of the Fort Greene Park Conservancy‘s larger 2012 summer programming, the FGPC and the SOB will present their 3rd annual free outdoor concert at monument plaza in Ft. Greene Park.

The SOB gave its very first concert on July 21, 2007, exactly 5 years ago to the day. Come help us celebrate in Fort Greene Park as we perform Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5 and works by Fela Sowande and Noel Pointer. We’re also celebrating the beginning of our educational partnership with the Noel Pointer School of Music in Bed-Stuy. We’ll kick off the concert by inviting students and faculty from the school to join us to perform Noel Pointer’s Roots Suite.

Noel Pointer: Roots Suite
Fela Sowande: African Suite for Strings and Harp
Beethoven: Symphony No. 5
