Symphony of the Mountains Postpones Opening Concert

Aug 31, 2021 | News

Kingsport, TN –Symphony of the Mountains is moving its 75th Anniversary opening concert to October due to the elevated Covid-19 Delta virus cases in the Tri-Cities. Unfortunately, this eliminates the Oak Ridge Boys performance as it was not possible to reschedule this season. A replacement concert will be performed in the Spring. The new program will be announced as soon as arrangements are finalized. All single ticket purchases for the Oak Ridge Boys will be refunded. Subscribers can use tickets for the canceled September concert to attend the Spring replacement concert or may call the symphony office to arrange refunds.

The opening Diamond Jubilee Concert will be “Two Fifths of Beethoven.” This concert, scheduled for October 16 at the Toy F. Reid Auditorium, will feature Music Director Cornelia Laemmli Orth leading the orchestra in the iconic Symphony #5 of Beethoven, known around the world by its first four notes.  The other “Fifth” will be the Fifth Piano Concerto, the “Emperor” played by Russian pianist Tatiana Tessman. Both works are performed in celebration of the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth in December of 1770.

Discounted ticket packages for the 75th Anniversary season concert are still available as are single tickets for all concerts. Tickets may be purchased online at or by calling the Symphony office at 423.293.8423. Please note that Toy F. Reid Eastman Employee Center Auditorium requires the audience to be fully vaccinated for Covid-19 to attend performances.
