San Bernardino Symphony receives generous donation for endowment

“A Night to Remember” coming to Roosevelt Bowl September 9

San Bernardino residents will have an opportunity to experience an end of summer evening under the stars as members of the San Bernardino Symphony under the direction of Maestro Anthony Parnther present “A Night to Remember” at Perris Hill Park’s Roosevelt Bowl on Saturday, September 9.

Vocalists Jamie Carganilla, Malynda Hale, and Drew Tablak, will join the Symphony in a concert to include many well-known cinematic favorites including “It Had To Be You,” “Diamonds Are A Girl’s Best Friend,” “Moon River,” “Come What May,” “Bring Him Home,” “Somewhere Over the Rainbow,” and “My Heart Will Go On.”

The free community concert represents a partnership between the Symphony and the City of San Bernardino Parks and Recreation Department made possible with financial support by Hillwood, a Perot Company.

“There’s no better way to cap off a wonderful summer of concerts in the park than to feature one of San Bernardino’s greatest treasures, the Symphony,” said Parks and Recreation Director Lydie Gutfeld. “Thanks to the generosity of Hillwood, we were able to make this happen.”

In addition to the performance, the evening will feature an instrument petting zoo, where kids of all ages can try out many of the instruments of an orchestra.

“Hillwood is excited to help bring the San Bernardino Symphony to the residents of San Bernardino,” said Scott Morse, Hillwood’s Executive Vice President for the Western United States. “We hope everyone enjoys “A Night to Remember on September 9th.”

Seating will be on a first come, first served basis. Gates will open at 5:00 pm, with the performance beginning at 7:00 pm. Perris Hill Park’s Roosevelt Bowl is located at 1135 East Highland Avenue in San Bernardino.

This will be the final concert at the Roosevelt Bowl before it is temporarily closed for renovations. Earlier this year, San Bernardino received $1.4 million in funding from Congressman Pete Aguilar to augment $1.2 million in City funds to restore and upgrade the venue. 

The 1,800-seat Roosevelt Bowl at Perris Hill Park was built and dedicated in 1934 as part of the depression era Federal Work Progress Administration. Since then, the outdoor amphitheater has been a featured gathering place in San Bernardino for musical, artistic, and cultural performances, civic events, and graduations.
