      Pack a picnic and a cooler full of your favorite summertime beverage (alcohol permitted), put on comfortable clothes, grab lawn chairs and blankets and escape to the grassy slopes of Cannonsburg Ski Area to listen to awesome music performed by the GR Symphony.

      The concert starts at 7:30 pm. Arrive as early as 5:30 pm to take in the sights and sounds of pre-concert local music entertainment. GRYP committee members will be sure to arrive early to stake claim to a large grassy seating area for GRYP members. Look for the GRYP signs!

      Theme: 50s Dance Party On February 3, 1959 a small plane carrying Buddy Holly, The Big Bopper and Ritchie Valens crashed over Iowa. The nation mourned as the voices of these mega stars were silenced one fateful night. Now, 50 years later, their sound comes alive on the Cannonsburg stage with a tribute to their timeless music. You’ll experience over two hours of unbridled, high voltage entertainment featuring all the hit songs from the 50s era: That’ll Be The Day, Peggy Sue, Oh Boy, Rave on, La Bamba, Chantilly Lace and many more.

      $14.00 each if you purchase tickets at the GR Symphony office
      $14.00 each if you purchase tickets online at ticketmaster.com (plus a $2.00 handling charge)
