MONROE – The Union Symphony League will host a Symphony of Flowers art, music and garden tour May 15 and 16 to support the musical arts in Union County.

The tour will consist of nine private gardens, nine concerts and nine artists over two days: May 15 (from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.) and May 16 (from 1 to 5 p.m.). The gardens are spread throughout downtown Monroe and the Rolling Hills neighborhood.

Tickets cost $50 and can be purchased at Dandelion and Friend Mercantile at 105 S. Hayne St. in Monroe or from a Symphony League member. Tickets are tax-deductible.

“The event will be a grand celebration of the dedication of so many people that work every day, in their own unique way to make Union County a more beautiful place to live and work,” said Shannon King, Union County Symphony League Member. “I count myself lucky to live here and enjoy so many talented friends and neighbors.”

The league is also planning a finale event with limited capacity. Symphony Under the Stars will serve as an outside celebration May 16 at a private estate. The evening will include live music, garden tours and a gourmet coursed dinner.

Tickets cost $150 and are tax-deductible. The dress is garden spectacular.
