Knoxville Symphony Orchestra To Give a FREE Concert at Market Square

KNOXVILLE -- The Knoxville Symphony Chamber Orchestra will perform Symphony On The Square, a FREE concert on the Market Square stage in downtown Knoxville, on Friday, May 13 at 7:00 PM.

The concert is family-friendly and open to the public. Patrons are encouraged to arrive early and bring a picnic-dinner, blankets and/or chairs.

The chamber orchestra, led by KSO Resident Conductor James Fellenbaum, will perform light classics and pops tunes including Mozart's Overture to Le nozze di Figaro, a movement from Tchaikovsky's Serenade for String Orchestra in C Major, a movement from Beethoven's Symphony No. 8, Anderson's Serenata, "Memory" from Cats, John Philip Sousa's El Capitan and more.
