Nearly 50 years ago, patrons of the arts began raising funds for the brand new Johnson City Symphony Orchestra.
JCSO began with about 28 members and has grown into an 80 piece orchestra. Today, JCSO has achieved recognition for its sustainment of the arts in Northeast Tennessee. Through the years, both individuals and local businesses in the community have contributed to JCSO so it can continue in its mission to provide and promote excellent symphonic music to the region with a quality orchestra that enriches, educates and entertains an expanding and diverse audience.
On October 27, JCSO will host an enchanting evening with Musicale Masquerade at 6:30 pm at the Blackthorn Club in Jonesborough. Musical entertainment will be performed by JCSO musicians and vocalist, Rebecca Myers. Additionally, there will be heavy hors d’oeuvres, a cash bar, the sale of Venetian-style masks and mystery bags, and a silent auction with golf packages, travel adventures, tickets to attractions along with other unique items. Thanks to our major donors: Walt Disney World, the Blackthorn Club, Wonderworks, Barter Theatre, Johnson City Country Club, JumpTN, The Titanic Museum, Rack Room Shoes, Ripley’s Aquarium, Livewire Radio 103.9, Tri-Cities Tutoring, Auction Promotions, Jones Chiropractic Clinic, Nashville Predators, along with individual donations from Charles Caudle, Donna Jacobson and Mike and Nina Marchioni.
