The high heat index is forcing the Symphony in the Park concert location to change.

The Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra (ISO) will move its annual outdoor concert to Warren Central High School’s Performing Arts Center on Tuesday, July 17.

The free concert will take place at 7:30 p.m.

The Symphony in the Park concert will feature popular light classical and symphonic works. The program consists of works from Mikhail Glinka’s Overtur to Ruslan and Ludmilla, Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov’s “The Sea and Sinbad’s Ship” from Scheherazade and his colorful Capriccio espagnol. Additionally, the ISO will play pieces from Czech composer Bed¿ich Smetana’s “The Moldau” from Má vlast (My Homeland), Antonin Dvo¿ák’s Legend No. 1 and Johann Strauss Jr.’s Thunder and Lightning Polka.

The Cleveland Orchestra’s Assistant Conductor James Feddeck is making his ISO debut as the director of this performance.

Free Symphony in the Park concerts have been performing around Indianapolis since 1939.
