As part of the Hartford Symphony Orchestra’s 70th season finale, the UConn Drumline will perform with the HSO for Bolero! The concert is the final event of the Masterworks Series, a not-to-be missed, blockbuster celebration! There will be four performances at The Busnhell’s Belding Theater: Thursday, June 5 at 7:30 p.m.; Friday and Saturday, June 6 and 7 at 8:00 p.m.; and Sunday, June 8 at 3:00 p.m.

This is the third time the UCMB has joined the HSO on stage. In 2012, the band performed at Picnic in the Park at Bushnell Park. Most recently, a few members of the drumline took part in the HSO’s Link Up, a program of Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute that guides students and teachers in grades 3-5 through a yearlong exploration of orchestral repertoire. The drumline helped close the show with an interactive piece that included the orchestra and a call-and-response between the drumline and 3,000 elementary school students from all over Hartford!
