THOMASVILLE — Music Director and Conductor Lisa M. Foltz and the Rose City Symphonic Band for "A Royal Affair," are holding an afternoon concert featuring works by Walton, Vaughan Williams, Meyerbeer, Glinka, Svendsen, Tchaikovsky and Sousa.

Presented by the Rose City Symphonic Band, the concert will take place this Saturday in the Thomasville Municipal Auditorium. The Municipal Auditorium is located at 144 E. Jackson St., in Thomasville. The concert begins at 4 p.m. and admission is free.

“The band and I are excited about presenting this concert for the people of Thomasville and the surrounding areas. We are playing great repertoire and our members have had fun preparing for this Saturday. We are looking forward to presenting a wonderful and entertaining program for people of all ages to enjoy,” said Foltz.

“Visitors can spend the afternoon taking in the quaint shops of Downtown Thomasville and then enjoy the free concert at 4:00 pm. The concert will last about 75 minutes.” Foltz noted that concert-goers can also enjoy dining in downtown Thomasville following the concert, as downtown restaurants will be open for normal business hours.
