Soulful Symphony Comes Home to Merriweather Post Pavilion
The Downtown Columbia Arts and Culture Commission welcomes Darin Atwater and Soulful Symphony to Merriweather Post Pavilion!
For nearly twenty years, Darin and Soulful Symphony have dazzled and delighted audiences with performances that celebrate America’s diverse musical and cultural history and reimagine what is possible with a symphony orchestra.
Following successful residences with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra and the Hippodrome, Soulful Symphony is now calling Merriweather Post Pavilion home.
Built in 1967, Merriweather was designed to be the home of world class arts and programming and to serve as a beacon for the new city of Columbia’s inclusive and progressive community vision. The venue’s artistic ambition was never fully realized, however.
In 2016, ownership of Merriweather Post Pavilion was transferred to the Downtown Columbia Arts and Culture Commission, a not-for-profit community organization dedicated to preserving and enhancing this celebrated venue’s cultural significance.
Together, the Commission and Soulful Symphony will begin to bring Merriweather’s founding vision to life in new and dynamic ways staring in the summer of 2019.
Stay tuned for announcements about shows and other events, and in the meantime, read the press release about Darin Atwater and Soulful Symphony’s Merriweather residency.
