It looks like it's shaping up to be the perfect weekend to catch a concert, and that's good news for two cities that will be hosting the annual Sounds by the Sea Concert. The Gulf Coast Symphony Orchestra will be performing Saturday evening at Jones Park in Gulfport at 7 p.m. and will also perform on Sunday in Pascagoula at Beach Park. Setup for the concert was underway in Jones Park Friday. The annual concert is open to the public and pays homage to our military men and women.
Dobbs Dennis, a Gulf Coast Symphony Orchestra Board Member, says, "What we're doing is honoring all who gave all for our country. Memorial Day celebrates, or I should say it's actually an honorarium for all who sacrificed everything." A fireworks display will take place after the concert. Several casinos, businesses, and charitable organizations donated to the event.
