POPULAR ‘SUMMER FESTIVAL ON THE GREEN’ CONCERT SERIES SET TO START JUNE 29 AT SANTA ANITA, CAL PHIL, GREAT RACE PLACE TO AGAIN STAGE FIVE EVENING SHOWS IN TRACK’S STATE OF THE ART INFIELD ENTERTAINMENT AREA
ARCADIA, Calif. (June 10, 2013)—The California Philharmonic Orchestra and Santa Anita Park will again combine forces as Cal Phil’s widely popular nighttime “Summer Festival on the Green” concert series will begin in the Santa Anita Infield on Saturday, June 29.
The “Festival on the Green” will consist of five night-time concerts, with gates opening at 5:30 p.m. and each performance slated to begin at 7:30 p.m.
“Anyone who joined us for this series here last year knows what an incredible night-time venue our Infield area has become,” said Santa Anita President George Haines. “The lighting, acoustics and ambiance are truly amazing and we’re thrilled to have Cal Phil back with us this summer.
“Cal Phil is a world-class orchestra headed by Maestro Victor Vener and he has once again attracted a full schedule of top-line entertainment to accompany the orchestra for all five performances. It’s going to be a lot of fun.”
Cal Phil, which will be embarking upon its 17th summer concert season, will be joined by the highly acclaimed cover band, “The Fab Four—the ultimate tribute,” for its first performance, on June 29. They will not only be performing all of the Beatles’ most popular songs, they’ll do the same with Beethoven and the Beach Boys as well.
Santa Anita’s spacious Infield, which affords attendees the area’s best unobstructed view of the beautiful San Gabriel Mountains, will be supplied with tables, benches with backs, and an expansive area for people to relax and enjoy the concerts on a finely manicured lawn.
Mezzanine seating and a corporate barbeque pit area are also available.
“In addition to great entertainment, we’ll be offering everyone jumbo video screens, gourmet food options, full-service bars and permanent restrooms,” said Haines.
Santa Anita Park Hospitality will also be providing a wide range of dining and beverage options during each live performance.
“We’re going to be offering everything from appetizers, to complete dinner entrees, to dessert,” said Haines. “Additionally, we’ll have a great selection of fine wines, as well as popular beers like Amstel Light, Corona and Stella Artois. All of these items are reasonably priced and we encourage everyone to visit Cal Phil’s website at www.calphil.org, for complete details.”
Admission gates will open for each performance at 5:30 p.m. Ample, convenient parking will be available by entering Santa Anita’s Infield parking lot via Gate 6, north of the track, on Colorado Place.
