A patriotic playlist, picnics and playtime: it’s that time of year for Fondren’s annual Symphony at Sunset.

The fifteenth anniversary event will be held September 17 at 7pm at The Cedars and will honor Fondrenites Sara and Phil Nelson.

Presented by Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Mississippi, Symphony at Sunset delights with the talents of the Mississippi Symphony under the canopy of tress on the historic Cedars lawn. Numerous public and private corporations and individuals whose mission it is to share arts and education throughout the public sector help us to make the evening possible.

While sponsored tables are available (call our office at 601.981.9606), attendees bring picnic baskets, lawn chairs and blankets and kids run and play. It’s become a tradition in the neighborhood that’s not to be missed. And with no admission charge, it’s family entertainment everyone can be a part of.
