Gainesville Symphony ends hiatus with Pops Concert
GAINESVILLE – The Gainesville Symphony Orchestra will end its year-long hiatus with the annual Patriotic Pops Concert.
The symphony announced last September they were suspending operations due to financial issues. The last year has been spent rebuilding the board and fundraising.
The symphony’s secretary, Vanessa Hyatt, hopes this year’s concert will “generate enthusiasm to get the symphony back where they need to be.”
“This is a benefit concert to get the symphony back up on their feet and running. The economy in 2008 hit everyone hard, and it hit the arts first. We’ve been struggling since 2008. We want to get back up and running to do a full concert season,” said Hyatt.
The concert will feature classical and patriotic music. Guest Conductor Lauren Green will join dozens of local, professional musicians to celebrate the Fourth of July.
The concert will be held on the lawn at Brenau University Amphitheatre on Tuesday, July 3. Doors will open at 6 p.m. and music will begin at 7:30 p.m.
Children under 7 will be admitted for free. Ages 7-17 will be $5.00, 18-65 will be $20.00, and those over age 65 will be admitted for $18.00. Tables will be $200, which includes 8 tickets.
