It will now be easier to view Kroger Symphony on the Prairie’s acts from anywhere in the venue.
“We have huge LED screens, so 8-meter screens, one on each side of the stage, and there is a 6-meter screen back near the playground towards the back of the lawn,” said Kristin Cutler, Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra director of communications. “These will be magnifying the action on the stage during each concert. There will be additional content rolling on the screens prior to the concert. It will have more of a stadium-feel to it, so we think that will be an exciting enhancement to the concert experience.”
For 11 of the remaining concerts, there will be reserved seating for the area right up in front of the stage. Cutler said there will be 200 reserved seats. There is exclusive bar service in the reserved seating area and for the tables. The first three shows of the season had reserved seating as well.
“For some of the bigger-name acts like Smokey Robinson, Scott McCreery, Wynonna and 98 Degrees, you’ll have the ability to reserve your seat right up front and be up close and personal with some of our bands,” Cutler said. “You can see your favorite performer up close without having to wrestle with the crowd to make that happen.”
There will be exclusive restrooms for reserved seating and the people at the tables. There also will be exclusive bar service.
There will be TV screens in the Sunset Lounge for the second consecutive year. Huntington Bank is the new sponsor of The Sunset Lounge.
Two weeks were added to the schedule, starting a week earlier June 1. A week also was added after Labor Day.
“Not only do we have a longer season than normal, we are doing 30 different concert programs over the course of the 35 nights,” Cutler said. “That’s more than double what we’ve ever had before. The majority of our weekends have a different act every night. We have a couple of Thursdays thrown in as well.”
In 2018, there were 13 individual concert programs.
