The Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra may perform less frequently during the summer, but it still gets around. In addition to summer concerts with the full orchestra (many of them conducted by Ward Stare), for four weeks starting next Tuesday, the City of Rochester will present RPO musicians in hour-long Around the Town ensemble concerts throughout the city. Each concert begins at 6:30 p.m. and is free. For more details, call 454-2100, or go to rpo.org.
