Orchestra in the Pines

Orchestra in the Pines

Saturday, June 23: 1–5pm

Revel in nature's acoustics, enjoy refreshments and sway with the majestic red pines as the Finger Lakes Symphony Orchestra performs a selection of pops and light classical music at this family-friendly event. Arrive by 1pm to enjoy refreshments, including wine and beer for purchase and complimentary snacks. Cumming Nature Center is open all day, so come earlier if you would like and bring the whole crew for a hike, pack a picnic lunch and stick around for this unique mashup of Finger Lakes culture and scenery. 

Cumming Nature Center is a dynamic, 900-acre environmental education facility that celebrates the unique landscape and culture of the Finger Lakes region through hands-on learning opportunities and thoughtful exhibits.

Rain Plan

Orchestra in the Pines is one of our favorite events of the year—and a little rain can't stop us! 

Since both the concert date and the rain date have a chance of rain, we will have a tent ready to go for whatever rain or shine that Mother Nature sends our way. The concert will take place on Saturday, June 23 as planned.

We may be in a tent, we may be in the pines, but we know for certain that there will be beautiful music and excellent snacks, wine and craft beer to enjoy! 

For maximum concert enjoyment, please also pack an umbrella. This will help you get from the Visitor's Center to the pines comfortably, allow you to go out into the pines to see how magical they look in the rain, and perhaps if we all bring umbrellas, it won't rain at all! (That's how it works, right?)
