Buzz: RSO presents ‘Swingin’ Strings,’ a free live-stream concert Sept. 19. The Rome Walk to End Alzheimer’s, set for Nov. 7, a bit different this year. Barron Stadium track reopens Wednesday.

Sept. 19: Rome Symphony Orchestra presents Swingin’ Strings, a free, live-streamed concert for your home enjoyment, in honor of front-line responders. The concert will feature a special appearance by the Rome Youth Symphony Orchestra. It begins at 7 p.m. Click here for access.


The Rome Walk to End Alzheimer’s will take place on Saturday, Nov. 7 — with a difference. Instead of hosting a large gathering, the Alzheimer’s Association is encouraging participants to walk as individuals or in small groups on sidewalks, tracks and trails across Rome.

On Walk day, an Opening Ceremony will feature local speakers and a presentation of Promise Flowers to honor the personal reasons participants join together to fight Alzheimer’s and all other dementia, all delivered to participants’ smartphones, tablets and computers. A small group of Alzheimer’s Association staff and volunteers will create the iconic Promise Garden in a “view only” format on Walk day at location to be determined to honor all those impacted by Alzheimer’s.

Rome City Schools announces the re-opening of the track at Barron Stadium beginning on Wednesday, Sept. 9. Guests are asked to refrain from using the turf and entering the bleachers during your visit, as the stands will be taped off in order to ensure they stay clean and ready for the next event. If you plan to use the facilities, we ask that all abide by the established rules and regulations in order to help keep Barron Stadium in great condition. Also note that the stadium will be closed the day before any scheduled event to ensure that RCS staff has ample time to sanitize the facilities before use.
