Summer Events
This summer, Canton Symphony Orchestra will be making the rounds across Stark Parks and beyond to reach new and interested audiences.
Most of these concerts are free. They are a fantastic way to enjoy classical music and the great outdoors!

Music at Beech Creek Gardens

Immerse yourself in nature at Beech Creek Botanical Garden while enjoying the sounds of live orchestra musicians. As guests walk the grounds, they will have the chance to engage with live musicians in various areas of the gardens. Guests can walk and engage at their own pace while enjoying nature and music together.

Performances at Centennial Plaza

Enjoy performances by Canton Symphony musicians in the beautiful centennial plaza right here in Downtown Canton! This will be our first time in this brand new gathering space!


Summer Serenades is back! Please join us for this collaborative series from the Canton Symphony Orchestra and Stark Parks.

What better way to celebrate over 50 years of our parks than to combine the spontaneous sounds of nature with the orchestrated sounds of music! It’s a free, family friendly series of instrumental ensembles performing all over Stark County. Bring your chair or blanket, favorite picnic food, and games; explore the parks and listen to the music!
