Summer at Koka Booth has Sizzling Sounds!


Heading into the month of June, the summer entertainment schedule at Cary’s Koka Booth Amphitheater is in  full effect, with an array of sounds for all musical tastes filling the hot summer air. The month of June opens up with “At the Movies,” which is part of the North Carolina symphony’s Summerfest Series on June 1. Performing tunes from the James Bond films, “Out of Africa,” “Indiana Jones,” and other well-known blockbusters, this show will have the added attraction of a costume contest for those who come dressed as their favorite movie character. The following night, on June 2there will be a free show at the amphitheater commemorating the 25th Anniversary of the Philharmonic Association.

June 14 will be a special night at Koka Booth, as the Rascals reunite as part of their reunion tour titled, “Once Upon a Dream.’ This tour marks the first time in forty years that the group that brought us such timeless rockers as “Good Lovin’,” “It’s a Beautiful Morning,” and “Groovin’” have shared the stage with one another. Ending a great week of music on the 15th will be the next installment of the Summerfest Series, featuring “Rachmaninoff’s Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini.” One week later on June 22, the Summerfest continues with “Broadway Blockbusters,” as the NC Symphony will give their take on some of the greatest show tunes of all time and the final Summerfest event of June comes on the 29th, when conductor William Henry Curry will lead the audience on a journey through the galaxy as part of “Holst’s The Planets: An HD Odyssey.”
