What better way to celebrate your Labor Day weekend than sitting back in your lawn chair on a summer evening in front of a live orchestra! The Bryan Symphony Orchestra is inviting the community to join them at the Dogwood Performance Pavilion for a free admission outdoor performance as they highlight the works of notable and underrepresented composers on Sunday, Sept. 5 beginning at 7 p.m.
While the community concert is being held later in the evening at the park, be sure grab a bite at one of Cookeville’s local eateries and head over to Dogwood Park before the performance.
