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.
