The 2018 festival will see new INTER/ACTIVE artworks by regional artists, commissioned by The Arts Commission specifically for Momentum. Friday night will feature a concert by Orquesta Akokán performing for the first time in Toledo! Additionally, the Toledo Symphony will return to the stage in Promenade Park, performing Tan Dun's "Water Concerto" on Saturday, September 15 and with music and other performances throughout day.
