The Scottsdale Philharmonic has announced the program for its next free classical music concert on Sunday, May 19.

The concert runs from 4-6 p.m. at the Scottsdale Bible Church, 7601 E. Shea Blvd., Scottsdale.

The May 19 concert presents the music of Gershwin and Strauss, and a guest appearance by the Fred Astaire Dancers.

The Scottsdale Philharmonic stays true to its mission to bring classical music free of charge to people of all ages.

“These concerts offer great entertainment for the whole family,” Joy Partridge, president and co-founder of the Scottsdale Philharmonic said in a prepared statement.

“Our mission is growing. This past year, we began work to form a Scottsdale Philharmonic Youth Orchestra for all high school students in the Valley. We are also working to create an Annual Scottsdale Children’s Concert to introduce all third graders to classical music. For the second year, we provided music camp scholarships to underprivileged youth.”

Other dates for free concerts in 2019 include Oct. 13 and Nov. 24, according to a press release.
