The Boston Landmarks Orchestra will hold a free concert at 7 p.m. on July 7 at Fenway Park to celebrate its tenth anniversary. The orchestra, founded in January 2001 by conductor Charles Ansbacher, performs free concerts in significant historical, geographical, and architectural settings throughout the Greater Boston Area, with the goal of fostering a broad appreciation of classical music among diverse audiences. For the concert at Fenway, which is scheduled for a night when the Red Sox are out of town, Ansbacher will lead the ensemble in Copland’s Fanfare for the Common Man, Rossini’s overture to The Barber of Seville, Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy,” and selections from West Side Story. More details on the concert—which is presented in association with Mayor Thomas M. Menino and the City of Boston—will be announced later in June.
