One of the biggest champions of the Knoxville Symphony is the group of women who make up the Knoxville Symphony League. All year long the League Ladies, as they are fondly known, tirelessly organize events that raise money for the orchestra. Every year they seem to out-do themselves and without their efforts the KSO would not be in as sound financial shape as it is.
One of the most beloved annual events presented by the League is the Symphony Showhouse. Each spring area designers completely decorate a beautiful house somewhere in the Knoxville area. The house is then opened up to the public for viewing. The homes are always stunning. It's a great way to get ideas for design in your own home, or to at least dream up what your ideal home would look like.
This year the Showhouse is actually two condos that are attached. Located in the Rocky Hill area of Knoxville, one condo is decorated in a traditional style and the other is decorated in a contemporary style. Both share a spectacular view of the mountains.
The Symphony Showhouse is currently open and runs through April 25th. Admission is $15 at the door, or you can purchase a season pass for $25. There is no parking near the Showhouse, but a shuttle is available from Rocky Hill Baptist Church.
More information, including hours and directions, is available on the KSO website. Information about the Knoxville Symphony League, including information on becoming a member, is available on their website.
