The free concert will last just over an hour. Donations will be accepted.

“The concert in Brookhaven would be a great time for those who haven’t seen the Haven Cross yet to kill two birds with one stone,” said Symphony member Steve Edge.

Leroy Smith of McComb is the primary director for these concerts. Stanley Stewart of Wesson will lead several of the numbers.

The concert will feature performances of several popular symphony tunes, including: “Emblem of Unity March,” “Holiday for Trombones,” “Teach Me Tonight,” Michael Buble’s “Home,” and Sousa’s “The Thunderer.”
