What: Schubert Symphony No. 5; Respighi Ancient Airs & Dances Suite No. 3, conducted by Yaniv Dinur and performed by students
How long is the hike? About a quarter of a mile, but with a fairly steep descent. Sturdy shoes should be worn.
Is it safe? Yes! The descent/ascent requires stepping down/up some significant rocks, but helpers will be available.
Seating: Chairs will be available for the concert, which will last under an hour.
E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
Seating will be available at the top of Morgan's Steep for those wishing to listen without hiking.
For a longer hike, Sewanee professors Karen Kuers and Steve Shaver will lead a hike beginning at 3:30 p.m. at the Lake Cheston Pavilion. It will head toward the bluff, and end at the concert site. Comfortable walking shoes and water are recommended.
