Going to a Chattanooga Symphony concert doesn’t necessarily mean dressing up and trying to find parking outside the Tivoli.
A new partnership with Warehouse Row is bringing free monthly lunchtime concerns for anyone looking to get away from their desk during lunch or to take a break from shopping.
On the third Thursday of each month from February through March and again this fall from September through December, quintets from the symphony will perform from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
“Warehouse Row and its tenants have a long-standing history of supporting the arts in Chattanooga and partnering with the CSO is just another extension of that,” said George Krauth, vice president of creative and marketing for property manager Jamestown Properties. “It makes the CSO more accessible to our visitors and tenants.”
During the winter months, performances will be held in The Mercantile, a collection of locally owned and operated eateries on the lower level of Building South. Weather permitting, spring and fall performances will be held outside in the Motor Court between the North and South buildings.
“I think it gives the CSO more exposure and it’s just one more opportunity for the community to help support the arts,” Krauth said.
This season marks the symphony’s 80th anniversary and includes Pops, Chamber and Volkswagen series alongside other educational opportunities for people throughout the region.
