Orchestra Schedules Concert In Dogwood Park

The annual Bryan Symphony Orchestra pops concert in Dogwood Park is coming up next month, and officials say the program will feature music that includes something for everyone. The opening concert of the Orchestra's 2010-2011 season begins Labor Day weekend -- at 7:30 p.m., on Sunday, Sept. 5, at the Performance Pavilion of Cookeville's Dogwood Park. The music is scheduled to include the "Star Spangled Banner" and "Stars and Stripes Forever," as well as "Fanfare for the Common Man," movie music and Sousa marches. While the concert begins at 7:30 p.m., children's activities begin at 6:30 p.m. – and that's also when the Men of St. Michael's will be on-hand to sell hotdogs, snacks and drinks. Dogwood Park is located behind the Putnam County Library. Parking is available within a block of the park throughout that section of downtown, including parking lots behind the Cookeville Performing Arts Center, on the corner of Broad and Walnut, behind City Hall and more. The lot directly behind the Dogwood Performance Pavilion will be reserved for handicapped parking. In case of rain, the concert will move to Wattenbarger Auditorium, the concert hall of the Bryan Fine Arts Building on the TTU campus.
