The City of Evanston’s 2011 Starlight Concert Series will conclude with a performance by the Ken Arlen Orchestra on Tuesday, August 23. The free concert will take place from 7:30 to 9:00 p.m. at Dawes Park, Sheridan Road at Church St., Evanston. The Orchestra was originally scheduled to perform on August 2, but sudden inclement weather caused a cancellation.

The Ken Arlen Orchestra is a 15-piece orchestra that combines four world-class vocalists with eleven of the top professional musicians in Chicago. They will perform a mix of pop, soul and contemporary music at the Starlight Concert.

As originally scheduled, the Starlight Concert Series will feature Canasta at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, August 16 in Dawes Park. Canasta augments the standard rock set-up with piano, violin, keyboard and trombone, in an effort to craft a more ambitious strain of majestic, ultra-melodic, orchestral pop.

Rain site updates are posted after 4:30 p.m. on concert dates at 847.448.8058.
