Warehouse Row Treats Lunchtime Patrons To Symphony Performances

Third Thursday Concert Series Begins Feb. 21

Tuesday, February 05, 2013

Warehouse Row and Chattanooga Symphony and Opera this month will begin treating shoppers and downtown business people to a series of live, informal musical performances on the third Thursday of each month. The monthly series of performances will take place throughout the CSO season. 

“We’ve had great success with initiatives that enhance the lunch experience for our shoppers and business clientele,” said Kelly Scott, leasing manager for Jamestown Properties, the company that owns Warehouse Row. “At Warehouse Row, we strive to present common pleasures – from shopping to taking a break from the office – in uncommon ways. Bringing the Symphony to The Mercantile is a perfect complement to our retail and restaurant experience.” 

Beginning Feb. 21, quintets will present informal concerts from 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m., with woodwind and string groups alternating monthly performances. During the winter months, performances will be held in The Mercantile, a collection of locally-owned and operated eateries, on the lower level of Building South. Weather permitting, spring and fall performances will be held outside in the Motor Court between the North and South buildings.

“These unstructured Warehouse Row performances will allow Chattanooga Symphony and Opera to broaden its reach within the community,” said Molly Sasse, CSO executive director. “People often associate musical performances with formality, and this informal concert series will engage CSO with the community in a whole new way.” 

Lunchtime performances will be held at Warehouse Row on the third Thursday of the month during the CSO’s regular 2013 season.  Concerts will take place, Feb. 21, March 21, April 18 and May 16 this spring, and Sept. 19, Oct. 17, Nov. 21 and Dec. 19 this fall, with a break during the summer months.
