Duluth to host summer concerts

LAWRENCEVILLE - Summers in the Duluth Town Green aren't just for kids.

This year, beside the fountain known for letting kids cool off, a summer concert series of classical music will be held in the city amphitheater.

The first performance is scheduled for 7 p.m. June 19 and will feature the Gwinnett Symphony Orchestra and Chorus.

The opening Symphony on the Green performance will be headlined by pianist Huu Mai and coloratura soprano Marielle Coleman Mai and will include selections from Saint-Saens, Brahms, Donizetti, Puccini, Borodin and Beethoven.

The free concert series will continue with a full-length choral concert on July 17 and a pops concert on Aug. 21.
