More than 800 students, faculty, staff and community members gathered around the Reflecting Pond last night for Campus Activity Board’s 24th annual Symphony Under the Stars event.

A collaboration with the UCF Music Department, Symphony stands as one of the Office of Student Involvement’s longest-standing traditions. Set to the theme of “Spring,” Chung Park, director for Orchestras and String Music Education, treated audience members to classics by Tchaikovsky, Schubert, Verdi and Sleeper. This year’s orchestra included students, Orlando community members, faculty and alumni.

“I am so proud of all the work that went into this incredible event,” said Lucy Sanchez, senior Biomedical Sciences student and CAB Fine Arts director. “Having the opportunity to bring campus and the Orlando community for such a beautiful evening is truly an honor.”

Symphony Under the Stars occurs every year on the third Thursday in April.
