KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - The Knoxville Symphony Orchestra will host three family-friendly outdoor performances this month, representatives announced Monday.

The three performances will be the first the KSO has seen in over a year due to the COVID-19 pandemic and will be free to attend with no tickets necessary.

The performances will be led by KSO Music Director Aram Demirjian. The shows will feature the KSO brass and orchestra sections playing selections including Gustav Holst’s “Mars,” Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” and more, according to the announcement.

“The KSO strives to serve the entire East Tennessee region with live orchestral performances,” said the KSO Director of Education and Community Partnerships, Jennifer Harrell. “We have missed visiting communities with whom we have established partnerships.”

The performances will be held in Maryville, Athens and Morristown. Details on the community performances can be found on the Knoxville Symphony Orchestra website calendar. In the case of cold temperatures or heavy storms, the concerts will be postponed.

Social distancing and masks will be encouraged for those in attendance.
