April is a great month to get out and explore Knoxville. With spring in full swing and the events calendar revving up for summertime, you’ll find plenty of things to do. One of the most anticipated events for April is the Symphony Designer ShowHouse, an event revolving around the professional interior design overhaul of three residential suites at THE TENNESSEAN Hotel. A mix of art, interior design, live music, and workshops, the ShowHouse will feature different activities every Thursday to Sunday all month long. It’s a great stop for both locals and visitors to get a dose of culture.
Bringing the Symphony to the Masses
To celebrate the “symphony” in the Symphony Designer ShowHouse, there will be various opportunities to hear the Knoxville Symphony Orchestra. Knoxville’s Woodwind Quartet, Principal Quartet, and String Quartet will all be playing on dedicated days during the month. Not only will you get to experience the orchestra’s beautiful melodies, but you’ll also be doing the community a service as proceeds to these shows benefit the KSO Education & Community Partnerships Programs.
Fine Tune Your Craft
The ShowHouse has also curated a series of hands-on workshops that help you express your inner artist. Make Mackenzie Childs’-inspired wine glasses with guidance from local artist, Gigi Wright-Shattler, or join a wreath-making class where you’ll design the perfect spring wreath for your home! Also, don’t miss the Intro to Bullet Journaling tutorial, where you can learn how to stay productive by visually mapping your goals and plans.
Have an Educational Experience
If you’re looking to spark some self-growth, sit down and listen to Mary Pankiewicz’s talk on how to minimize and de-stress in your life. She’s a professional organizer and ADHD specialist, so she knows her stuff. More of a bibliophile? On April 20th, Union Avenue Books will be displaying their favorite summer reading selections for you to peruse.
A Designer Venue
Don’t miss the star of the show – the three luxury residences of THE TENNESSEAN Hotel that have been totally transformed by prestigious designers. Come get interior design ideas for your own home or just imagine what it would be like to live in one of these impressive residences.
