Bluesfest wrapped up earlier this week, but that’s no reason for LeBreton Flats Park to go quiet.

If you’re suffering from outdoor concert withdrawal, fear not — the National Arts Centre and the National Capital Commission kick off the 2010 edition of Orchestras in the Park Thursday.

“Orchestras in the Park is one of the highlights of the season for the NAC Orchestra,” said Christopher Deacon, managing director of the NACO. “It is so rewarding to bring such enjoyable music to such an appreciative crowd of all ages.”
