This springtime tradition is sponsored by Home Federal Bank and features a free concert by the Knoxville Symphony Chamber Orchestra which will provides a variety of tunes from classical to opera to Broadway.

“Home Federal Bank appreciates the opportunity to support the arts and our community through the continued sponsorship of Symphony on the Square,” said Home Federal Bank President and CEO Dale Keasling. “We encourage music lovers of all ages to take advantage of this opportunity to enjoy free, quality entertainment and all that downtown Knoxville has to offer.”

Conducted by Maestro James Fellenbaum, this year’s Symphony on the Square concert features a wide musical spectrum, including classical pieces from Mozart and Strauss; selections from the opera “Carmen”; and Broadway selections from “Phantom of the Opera” and “The Sound of Music”; among other tunes.

“We appreciate this opportunity to showcase the Knoxville Symphony Chamber Orchestra in such a relaxed atmosphere,” Knoxville Symphony Orchestra Executive Director Rachel Ford said. “And we are thankful for the support of Home Federal Bank to make this free concert possible.”

Patrons are encouraged to arrive early and bring blankets and/or chairs to enjoy the popular concert. Concert goers can also bring picnic dinners or pick up food at one of the many downtown restaurants. Parking is free after 6 p.m. in city-owned Market Square, Locust Street and State Street garages.
