The Helena Symphony and Carroll College has announced the return of their continued collaboration for the Intrepid Credit Union Symphony Under the Stars concert event and fireworks show on Saturday, July 17 at 8:30 p.m. on the campus of Carroll College. Considered the largest summer event in Montana, the much-anticipated Symphony Under the Stars attracts close to 18,000 people from all over the state of Montana and beyond.
After having to cancel last year, the return of the 17th annual concert will feature the music of the Totally Awesome 80s! The Helena Symphony Orchestra, complete with rock band and backup singers, will showcase the top hits of iconic 80s musical acts including Sting, U2, Devo, Peter Gabriel, David Bowie, the B-52s, and many, many others.
“Symphony Under the Stars has become an important Montana tradition,” said Helena Symphony Music Director Allan R. Scott. “Carroll College and the Helena Symphony, along with the Intrepid Credit Union have committed to keeping this concert alive. We especially feel that the Montana community needs this concert at this time, after almost a year and a half of not having the chance to celebrate together.”
“Carroll College enjoys collaborating with the Helena Symphony and Intrepid Credit Union in order to bring this much-anticipated evening of music to the Helena community and beyond each summer. Helena’s Symphony Under the Stars will be the first major public event since the beginning of the pandemic and we are proud to provide the venue which will bring our community together for a magical evening after such a long year apart,” said Dr. John Cech, president of Carroll College.
“At Intrepid Credit Union, we work to cultivate community and strive to make Helena a great place to live, work, and play,” said Greg Strizich, CEO of Intrepid Credit Union. “We are honored to be the principal sponsor of Symphony Under the Stars, which is one of Helena’s most beloved annual events.”
