The San Angelo Symphony encourages families to attend our concerts and special events. We are proud to offer a multitude of events for families to choose from. Both single and season tickets are available for children 12 and under. Children ages 2 and under do not need a ticket as long as they remain in the lap of an adult. As a reminder for parents, not all events will be best suited for the entire family. For more information, please call the Symphony office at (325) 658-5877.

It is most appropriate to applaud at the end of a piece. Sometimes a musical work may have several sections. If you are ever unsure of when to clap, a good rule of thumb is to wait until the conductor turns to face the audience.

The July Pops Concert is an annual event held on July 3rd. Gates to the Bill Aylor Sr. Memorial RiverStage open at 12pm on July 3rd. The Community Band begins at 7pm followed by the San Angelo Symphony and Fireworks at 8:30pm.

The gates to the RiverStage Park open at 12pm on July 3rd and concert goers are encouraged to lay their blankets out from then on. Blankets may be secured with items that can easily be removed and do not pose a walking hazard. Every year the San Angelo Symphony Belles and Beaux sell sandbags 4/$1 to help secure your blanket.

July Pops Concert Sponsors, City workers, Goodfellow personnel, July Pops Committee Members, and various other July Pops volunteers are given permission to set out their blankets before the gates open as a special thank you from the San Angelo Symphony for their countless hours of service and dedication.

Typically, the concert and fireworks show are unaffected by a light shower. In the event of severe weather, the concert may be relocated and the fireworks show may be canceled. Please contact the San Angelo Symphony with any weather related questions at (325) 658-5877.
