Guest saxophonist Jason Kush will perform music from the 2002 Steven Spielberg film “Catch Me If You Can,” orchestra officials say.

Those attending are encouraged to don their favorite costumes, with a prize awarded at intermission.
“We wanted to wrap up our 50th season with a fun concert that is perfect for all ages. We encourage families to dress up and plan for a fun night out with plenty of photo ops,” says Endicott Reindl, symphony executive director.
