Fondren Postpones Symphony at Sunset
Fondren Renaissance Foundation (FRF) and the Mississippi Symphony Orchestra have decided to postpone Symphony at Sunset, scheduled for September 16, until the current outbreak of COVID-19 begins to subside.
The organization announced the news in a Facebook post on Friday.
“We hope to reschedule the event for some time this fall, but providing a safe environment for the musicians and attendees is of utmost importance,” the post read.
Symphony at Sunset, held annually since 2001, canceled last year’s event due to COVID-19.
The concert, held on the lawn of The Cedars on Old Canton Road, typically attracts a crowd nearing 2,000. Patrons gather with picnic baskets and lawn chairs on the grounds of the historic home – now a venue – to hear the Mississippi Symphony Orchestra for free.
FRF encouraged the community to “mask up and get vaccinated!”
