Chattanoogans with a love for both music and the outdoors will be treated to a truly one-of-a-kind experience on November 1 with “Symphony on Stringer’s.” The event will be in Stringer’s Ridge Park from 3:00-5:00 p.m. and will feature a free concert by the Chattanooga Symphony and Opera brass quintet.
