If you like classical music, picnics and fireworks, Chetola Resort in Blowing Rock has just the event for you.

Presented by the Blowing Rock Chamber of Commerce, the annual Symphony by the Lake event at Chetola Resort is a midsummer tradition that attracts music lovers from all over.

For the past few years, the Symphony by the Lake has featured Kingsport, Tennessee’s the Symphony of the Mountains, under the direction of conductor Cornelia Laemmli. The program includes classical favorites, movie themes, popular instrumentals and patriotic tunes. On occasion, the concert will feature world premieres written by local composers and guest vocalists.

The Symphony by the Lake event is also a chance to meet with local companies and organizations who set up booths and host parties with extravagant themes, ornate decorations, and delicious food.

Timberlake’s Restaurant at Chetola Resort will set up an outdoor dining area where guests can purchase sandwiches and other picnic food, or you can bring in your own cooler.

The music begins around 6 p.m. and the fireworks start after the concert. For more information, call (828) 295-7851.
