The Pocono Mountains Music Festival will hold a special event on Friday, July 31, the day before its "Silent Symphony" event at Sktyop Lodge.

The Empire Trio — which will "breathe new life into well known classics from opera to pop to Broadway" — will perform outside the Fairway Grille at Buck Hill Falls starting at 6:30 p.m., rain or shine, PMMF artistic director Scott Coulter announced.

The free "drive in-dine out" event can be enjoyed on the lawn, from patio seating or in the car. Contact the Fairway Grille at 570-595-3535 by Wednesday, July 29 to reserve patio seating. Dine-out guests can also order a charcuterie board ahead of time.

The festival said it "will comply with all CDC, state and local guidelines in place at the time of this event. We are committed to keeping our patrons, performers, and staff safe."
