Albany Symphony Orchestra celebrates its 50th anniversary
ALBANY, GA (WALB) -
The Albany Symphony
Orchestra celebrated its 50th anniversary. They Symphony Association hosted a Golden
Gala dinner and dance at the Hilton Garden Inn downtown and honored many of the
symphony's longtime supporters.
"It's a way of honoring
the people who have contributed so much to the symphony, to its existence
today, wouldn't be here if a lot of these people who are here tonight didn't
have a vision 50 years ago," said Jim Bullion.
The group was organized as the Albany
Symphonette in 1964. You can enjoy the symphony's Beethoven in Blue Jeans performance
Saturday night at the Municipal Auditorium.
