CLASSICAL/POPS | Concert by the Shore 

Summer is here and the regular orchestral concert season is over. But you can still catch the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra and its music director, Ward Stare, at a free concert at Ontario Beach next Wednesday. The populist program features plenty of Independence Day odes and a heavy dose of John Williams with film music from "E.T." and the Harry Potter franchise. Other featured composers include Bizet, Dvoák, and Tchaikovsky, with works from the upcoming 2017-18 season. This concert is chock full of crowd-pleasers, striking a balance between the patriotic and the whimsical.

The RPO will perform Wednesday, July 5, at Ontario Beach Park, 50 Beach Avenue. 7:30 p.m. Free. 454-2100;
