John Morris Russell

The Hilton Head Symphony Orchestra will present an in-person, outdoor pops concert April 28, beginning at 7:30 p.m., at the new Lowcountry Celebration Park at Coligny. 

John Morris Russell will lead members of the HHSO in “A Symphony Celebration!,” a program to include music by George Gershwin, Dizzie Gillespie, Scott Joplin, Astor Piazzolla, and more. Vocalist Kimberly Hawkey, pianist Assaf Gleizner, and saxophonist Daniel Dickinson will be featured.

This concert will be one of the first major events to take place at Lowcountry Celebration Park, which opened in December of 2020.

The concert will take place, rain or shine, with performers playing on the Pavilion stage. Distanced audience members will bring their own chairs and be seated on the expansive park grass individually and in couples in 8-foot diameter hula-hoop “pods.”

Masks are required outside of pods. Patrons may bring food and beverages.  Hand sanitizing stations will be placed around the concert site.

Tickets for this special concert are $60 per person, which ticket includes a half-bottle of wine for individuals and a full bottle for couples. In order to safely space attendees, fewer than 500 tickets will be sold.
