Classical Blast featured in free Thursday night concert series

The Hoffman Estates Arts Commission and the Hoffman Estates Park District will host Classical Blast on Thursday, July 31, at 7 p.m. as part of the “Summer Sounds on the Green” concert series.


Classical Blast is a group of classically trained musicians who love to rock. Dedicated to bringing the classical arts to mainstream rock & pop music, the band plays an innovative genre-crossing show from Beethoven to Led Zeppelin to U2. Their unique musical approach brings the past, present and future together in perfect harmony.


This concert is the sixth in a series of eight summer shows. All performances take place on Thursday evenings at 7 p.m. at the Virginia Mary Hayter Village Green, located at 5510 Prairie Stone Parkway across the street from the Sears Centre Arena off Route 72 in the Poplar Creek at 59/90 “Entertainment District.”


Admission is free. Bring a blanket and picnic to the amphitheater. If you are bringing a picnic, do not bring glass bottles, glasses or glass containers for the safety of barefoot patrons.


Levy Restaurants will be selling a variety of food, including pizza, hamburgers, hot dogs, popcorn, nachos and gluten-free snacks, at the concession stand. Beer, wine and mixed drinks will also be available for purchase.
