The St. Mary’s College of Maryland’s River Concert July 15 transports listeners across the Atlantic to Old Europe. “We call it ‘European Vacation’ because we feature music that conjures images of Europe so beautifully,” said Jeffrey Silberschlag, Chesapeake Orchestra music director. “They include Strauss’ “Alpine Symphony” and “Nights in the Garden of Spain” with exciting Spanish pianist Antonio Soria.” The weekly celebrations on the college’s Townhouse Green continue every Friday through July 29 with world-class music and a variety of food from local vendors. Gates open at 5 p.m. and concerts start at 7 p.m. These outdoor concerts are free and open to the public, and picnic baskets are welcome.

Soria received his training in Barcelona and Bordeaux, and performs as a soloist around the world.
