Chattanoogans with a love for both music and the outdoors will be treated to a truly one-of-a-kind experience on November 1 with “Symphony on Stringer’s.” The event will be in Stringer’s Ridge Park from 3:00-5:00 p.m. and will feature a free concert by the Chattanooga Symphony and Opera brass quintet.

The concert will be held on “Old Baldy,” a cleared knoll overlooking the downtown skyline and the Tennessee River. Fall foliage should be in full array to offer an autumn backdrop and clear views from the ridge.  Before and after the concert, visitors will be free to explore the 7 miles of forest trails in the park on their own or with guides. Light refreshments will be available following the performance as visitors exit the park.

Volunteers from Friends of Stringer’s Ridge will be at the park’s entrances to provide maps and suggest walking routes as well as guide small groups. This event will be the perfect opportunity for first-time visitors to familiarize themselves with the park.

Symphony on Stringer’s is presented by Friends of Stringer’s Ridge and the Tennessee River Gorge Trust and is sponsored by The UNFoundation. Additional event details will be released in October.

Friends of Stringer’s Ridge partners with the City of Chattanooga and the Tennessee River Gorge Trust to protect, promote, and strengthen the resources and recreation opportunities for Chattanoogans in their urban forest park. They provide programs for the community including educational and historical programs and group hikes, trail runs, and yoga.
