KNOXVILLE (WATE) – The Tennessee Theatre is providing a full line-up of events during the month of September.

Music fans can attend “Mighty Musical Monday” on September 5. Organist Paul Swiderski and the band Dor L’Dor will perform.

The Knoxville Symphony Orchestra will perform on September 15 and 16. “Russian Passion: Rachmaninoff and Tchaikovsky” will be its first performance of the 2016-2017 season.

Singer-song writer Amos Lee will sing songs from his new album on September 26.

Recently, the theatre hosted a relighting ceremony for its iconic marquee and sign. The Tennessee Theatre launched a fundraising campaign in April to raise $150,000 to cover the cost of refurbishment. So far, more than $136,000 has been raised. People can still sponsor a bulb for $25 or purchase commemorative items to help finish raising the funds.
