The Chattanooga Symphony traces its beginning to the first concert on Nov. 5, 1933, when Chattanooga High School graduates and students first pursued their dream of playing classical music together. The May 25 concert will be in the theatre that opened as the Princess Theatre on July 2, 1934, less than a year after the Symphony was founded.

Malcolm Arnold, a trumpeter by training, was a full-time composer whose popular works include the Oscar winning musical score for the 1957 film "The Bridge on the River Kwai." Douglas Hedwig, a graduate of the Julliard School, played trumpet for the New York Metropolitan Operas before becoming a fulltime composer. In 2013 Hedwig relocated to Chattanooga and served as the 2013-2017 music critic for the Times Free Press. Jan. 27, 2019, was the world premiere of his "Four Third Streams" by Chattanooga Symphony Wind Quintet.
