Knoxville Symphony League presents Reeds to Oboe at Marble Springs

On Tuesday, February 28, 2012 Marble Springs was once again a host site for the Elegant Dining Series, presented by the Knoxville Symphony League.  At a lunch of Southern vittles in the quaint cottage on the property, Dr. Michael Toomey, noted educator, author & historian, (& immediate past GJSMA Board President) talked about life and times in the region during the 1790s.

Scheduled special guest artist KSO oboist Ayca Yayman was unable to attend the luncheon. In place of her scheduled demonstration; Executive Director Anna Chappelle, Grounds Manager John Gammon & Dr. Toomey spoke to guests about the historic structures, the mission of the GJSMA & expanded on the topic of John Sevier’s life.  A guided tour of the historic structures was led by John Gammon.

Southern Vittles were prepared by Abner’s Attic, Rex Bradford Jones, Caterer.  The hosts for this luncheon were Elizabeth Koester, Patsy Ellis,  Yellie Greebe, Rochelle Veum, Terry Finnerty &  Charlotte Walden. 

We always enjoy serving as a host site for these unique community events.  Thank you to everyone that attended that luncheon - we look forward to seeing you again soon!
