Symphony to play on Robin Lake

PINE MOUNTAIN – Callaway Gardens announced this week that the Columbus Symphony Orchestra will be playing at the tenth annual Symphony in the Sand by Robin Lake Beach at Callaway Gardens on April 29 at 8 p.m.

The Columbus Symphony Orchestra will be a returning performance for the annual event that has featured a variety of orchestra groups in the past, and the orchestra – which is known as one of the oldest in the United States – is sure to put on a spectacular performance to commemorate a decade of performances at Callaway Gardens.

“The 2017 Symphony on the Sand is set to be spectacular,” said Andy Brown, director of recreation for Callaway Gardens in a press release.  “Whether this will be your first year or tenth time attending, the experience is just so memorable. We are thrilled to again feature the talented Columbus Symphony Orchestra and hope that everyone will come out for this night under the stars.”
