Memphis Symphony Orchestra at Memphis International Airport

After a six year “intermission,” classical music concerts by woodwind and string quartets from the Memphis Symphony Orchestra are coming back to Memphis International Airport (MEM).

Performances begin this Friday, August 29th and will return just about every month through next May.

The Friday “mini concerts” will take place from 12:45 p.m. to 1:45 p.m. in the passenger connector near the Blue Note Café and from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. in the southeast corner of concourse B.

Concert dates announced so far are: August 29, September 26, October 10, November 14 and, in 2009, January 2, February 27, March 20, and May 1.

No word yet when Elvis is coming back to the airport. Or to this planet. But thankfully, there’s an entire store devoted to Elvis music and memorabilia at the airport.
