    "Evening" happens when it happens.
    The program/event/concert/party/festivities -- whatever it is you're talking about - will start at 19:00 and end at 22:00
    Please come on time. OR: Please arrive in time for the opening ceremonies.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    'Evening' for me can suggest 'evening's event(s)', and so "The evening will start at 19:00 and end at 22:00" is possible, in my opinion.

    Whether you go with 'program/event/concert/party/festivities -- whatever it is you're talking about' or 'evening', there is no need to add 'planned' or 'is scheduled'.
