The 33rd Annual Symphony by the Lake at Chetola has been postponed from the traditional fourth Friday in
July to Saturday, August 22nd , 2020. This year’s program will feature musical selections from
previous Symphony by the Lake performances and will be comprised of the “best of the best.”
“After careful consideration of all the factors, we feel that the Symphony would be a great path
forward for the community as so many consider this event to be the social centerpiece of
Blowing Rock’s summer. While some more vulnerable residents and visitors will not be in
attendance, we feel that there will be many who will participate in a socially distanced manner.
Many people are hoping to see some normalcy in their lives and the Chamber is attempting to
offer this by hosting Symphony by the Lake and other Chamber sponsored events. Anyone who
is uncomfortable should first and foremost take care of themselves and their loved ones” said
Charles Hardin, President / CEO of the Blowing Rock Chamber.
Some changes to the event will be made to ensure the safety of patrons and volunteers.
Unfortunately, shuttles to Chetola from off-site parking lots will not be available. Ticket holders
will be allowed to park at Tanger Outlets and public parking areas in Blowing Rock and walk to
an event entrance. Parking passes are available for purchase for the Snyder Lot inside Chetola.
General Admission tickets are $40 in advance and are available online at
SymphonybytheLake.com. If you’ve already purchased tickets for the event, they will
automatically transfer to Saturday, August 22nd . For questions regarding your ticket order,
please call 828-295-7951.
Symphony by the Lake at Chetola is organized by the Blowing Rock Chamber of Commerce and
presented by The Kennedy – Herterich Foundation and Hendrick Luxury Group.
