Jackson Symphony on the Move headed to Henderson
JACKSON, TN (WNBJ)-
In 2020 the pandemic caused many industries to change the way they did things; the performing arts industry is no exception. The Jackson Symphony was not able to hold their typical season of concerts at the Carl Perkins Civics Center, but they found a way to continue to bring their music to the community.
“there was a period of time where we could not have our concerts due to covid, and so that actually kind of caused us to get creative, which has been a really neat thing in the long run. And we started taking our concerts to neighborhoods and to surrounding communities…it’s been a great way for Jackson Symphony to sort of stretch outside of Jackson and it was so popular that we continued to book these concerts even though we are back in season," says Elizabeth Stocks.
One of the symphony on the Move concerts will be held tomorrow in Henderson at the Chapel Hall on Freed Hardeman's campus. This is the third time that they have partnered with the Henderson Arts Commission to come to Henderson this year.
“We’re really excited about what they have already brought to us. And the people that have seen and heard them and experienced them before are amazed and excited about the world-class offerings that the symphony can bring,” says Jason Bramblett, president of the Henderson Arts Commission.
The event tomorrow in Henderson will feature the ensemble Brazilian corro group that plays Brazilian jazz. There is a reception with food at 5:30 before the event and the concert begins at 6.
Admission for children ten and under is free. Tickets for anyone over ten years old are twenty-five dollars at the door. The twenty-five dollars also includes a membership to the henderson arts commission which gives you access to future events.
