Random Acts of Culture™ returns to Akron

The Akron Symphony Orchestra officially kicked off its 2012 Random Acts of Culture™ program on May 1st. Akron Symphony Orchestra musicians enthusiastically performed at several popular and highly visible locations around Akron. Tuesday was a particularly great day to be out and about in Akron. If you kept your eyes (and ears) open, you had a good chance of seeing (or hearing) members of the Akron Symphony Orchestra randomly performing classical music.

The Random Acts of Culture  started at the Metro RTA terminal on Broadway in downtown Akron, the hub for all mass transit activity in greater Akron. Random Acts of Culture continued at West Point Market in west Akron, and then moved to Stan Hywet Hall and Gardens, the historical home and grounds of F.A. Seiberling’s family, which is now a community treasure. The Akron Symphony’s first day of Random Acts of Culture wraped up at Akron Centre Plaza in the heart of downtown Akron.

We are grateful to the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation for its support of Random Acts of Culture in our Akron community and in communities around the country. Thank you to our dedicated Akron Symphony Orchestra musicians, staff and volunteers for making the launch of these Random Acts possible and memorable.

Stay tuned for details about our next round of Random Acts of Culture.
