Past Events @ Hensville
TSO and The Music of Prince
This FREE summer concert will kick off at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 15, with A Symphonic Tribute to the Music of Prince. The concert will feature the Toledo Symphony Orchestra and a tribute band of former members of his New Power Generation performing his biggest hits, including “Purple Rain,” “When Doves Cry,” “U Got the Look,” “Raspberry Beret,” and more.
The concerts will be reminiscent of the Rally by the River events at Promenade Park in the 1980s and early 1990s, but larger in scope of entertainment. The stage will be near the Maumee River; the performers also will be seen on a video wall on the side of the new parking garage. Each event will feature food trucks and an area serving beer and wine.
TSO and the Music of Prince is also part of Momentum, a three-day festival of music and art in downtown Toledo with a focus on the revitalizing waterfront. As the first festival in the newly revitalized Promenade Park, Momentum celebrates Toledo's rich artistic history and its promising and evolving forward trajectory. Momentum includes:
“Momentum After Dark”, a music event in the Warehouse District, “Glass, Music, & Art Festival” with over 20 glass & design vendors, music, food trucks, and public art in Promenade Park, TSO and the Music of Prince in Promenade Park, and the month long “Momentum Juried Competition & Exhibition” which will award up to $10,000 to artists working in glass and glass-related materials.
