Sunday Concert Series starts next weekend

The Lauren Rogers Museum of Art will host the Sunday Concert Series, presented by The University of Southern Mississippi Symphony Orchestra, beginning Sunday, September 16 at 2 p.m.

This year’s Sunday Concert Series will consist of four chamber concerts to be held at the Museum from September 2007 through April 2008. The first concert The Beatles: Music of an Era will feature a string quartet led by USM symphony violinist Alejandro Drago. The program was chosen to highlight LRMA’s exhibition Linda McCartney’s Sixties: Portrait of an Era, currently on display in the Lower Level Galleries.

The concert is sponsored by Tim Lawrence of Smith Barney, Inc. in Jackson and is free and open to the public. The Lauren Rogers Museum of Art is located at the corner of Fifth Avenue and Seventh Street in historic downtown Laurel. For more information, call 601-649-6374 or visit the Museum’s website at
