Local residents interested in a free and relaxed symphony concert could have come by Courthouse Square in downtown Redwood City on Saturday, June 23, for the Redwood Symphony’s annual outdoor event.

The concert began at 7 p.m. and ran for just over an hour, nicely bracketing the time between the sun’s disappearance behind the palm trees and its actual setting. The concrete half-block, filled with comfortable outdoor chairs, with lots of additional audience members sitting on the steps to the side or standing in the back, was warm and comfortable, not blazing hot. When I arrived, a quarter hour before showtime, a brass quintet was playing “When I’m 64” and a medley of hymns.
