Starting at 7:30 p.m., “Can This Be Love?” is a Valentine’s themed pops concert that will offer music from popular film scores exploring every aspect of that undefinable emotion plus the usual high jinks with music from West Side Story, Lion King, Casablanca, Frozen, James Bond, Lord of the Rings, Sleeping Beauty, and more.

“There is nothing quite like the sound of a symphony orchestra in full flight,” George Del Gobbo, music director and conductor, said.

Single tickets for “The Thrill of the Orchestra” are $5 for children and $7.50 for adults. Homeschool and school group options are available at csoga.org for classes still in session that morning
