The Syracuse Symphony Orchestra has been entertaining Skaneateles residents with a free concert at Austin Park for several years. This year’s concert will take place on Wednesday, July 28, 2010 at 7 PM.

May 20, 2010
On July 28, 2010 the Syracuse Symphony Orchestra will return to Skaneateles for the 32nd year to present the annual Sounds of Summer performance.  This concert is a tradition for many Skaneateles residents who bring picnics to enjoy while listening to the sounds of the Symphony.  Last year, over 2,500 residents enjoyed the performance in Skaneateles.

I write to request that the Skaneateles Area Chamber of Commerce sponsor the Syracuse Symphony Orchestra’s performance in Skaneateles.

Fun Fact about Syracuse/Onondaga County …. did you know …..

…that democracy began right on the shores of Onondaga Lake? The Peacemaker came to the shores of Onondaga Lake over a thousand years ago, bringing together the five powerful nations of the Haudenosaunee. They uprooted a white pine tree and threw their weapons of war into the hole. After replanting the tree, the Peacemaker place an eagle on the top to warn the Haudenosaunee of any dangers to this great peace. This tree is known as the Tree of Peace and is a symbol of this union.
