OLYMPIA (VIDEO) — Despite temperatures in the 90s Sunday, Olympia Symphony Orchestra performed on the Capital Campus lawn for free and without a hitch.

The orchestra entertained an audience of about 1,000 during the Concert at the Capitol, which was powered by a solar array assembled near the performance tent.

A cooling tent was available to those struggling with the heat.

The symphony of more than 100 musicians was conducted by Huw Edwards and is marking its 66th season.

Dressed in shorts and T-shirts, the musicians and conductor performed Sousa marches and songs form Westside Story and Fiddler on the Roof.

The orchestra enters its new season with performances scheduled for October and November, plus early in 2019 at the Washington Center for the Performing Arts.
