JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -

The Jacksonville Symphony is bringing back Starry Nights after a 10-year hiatus. Performing with the orchestra on Saturday will be Chicago, followed by Christopher Cross on June 7.

"Thousands of residents remember the wonderful outdoor concerts in Metropolitan Park, as the orchestra collaborated with some of the great pop talents," said David Pierson, president of the Jacksonville Symphony Association.

Leading off Starry Nights is Chicago, an American band formed in 1967. Chicago is a self-described "rock and roll band with horns." Chicago was inducted this year into the Grammy Hall of Fame.

Christopher Cross is an American singer-songwriter and five-time Grammy Award winner. He won an Academy Award with "Arthur's Theme (Best That You Can Do)," for the Dudley Moore film comedy Arthur.

Table seating and lawn chair seating are available. Gates for both concerts open at 6 pm. Concerts begin at 8:15 pm. Concerts take place rain or shine, unless conditions endanger the safety of artists and the public.
