WILLIAMSBURG — The Virginia Symphony Orchestra will kick off its “Symphony Under the Stars” series at William & Mary on Aug. 31.

Conducted by Morihiko Nakahara, “Symphony Under the Stars” will take place at the Martha Wren Briggs Amphitheatre at Lake Matoaka. Gates will open at 6:30 p.m. and the concert will take place from 7:30-9 p.m.

Wristbands will be required for guests to enter due to venue capacity limitations. Wristbands for the concert will be distributed by the venue ticket office beginning at 6 p.m. The concert is sold out when wristbands run out.

William & Mary encourages drivers to park in the garage located at 201 Ukrop Way, and to arrive after 5 p.m. to allow day traffic to clear the lots. Handicap spaces will be available in the School of Business parking lot, and golf carts will be available beginning at 6 p.m. for those with mobility issues.

Beach chairs and blankets are welcome, but William & Mary asks nothing that would block the view of other guests. Guests are welcome to bring personal coolers and picnic baskets; however, neither external alcoholic beverages nor glass containers are permitted inside the venue. All bags and coolers will be inspected prior to entry.

Alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages will be available for purchase inside the venue. All guests will be required to adhere to any restrictions in place on the day of the performance. 

In case of inclement weather, the concert will be rescheduled. For up-to-date information about the event, visit the Virginia Symphony Orchestra event page.
