HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – Huntsville Hospital Foundation’s 33rd annual Huntsville Classic will open the Orion Amphitheater with its first event, a concert by county music star Jake Owen.

“Hosting the Huntsville Classic as The Orion Amphitheater’s inaugural event is meaningful in a multitude of ways,” said Ryan Murphy, The Orion Amphitheater General Manager. “Huntsville Hospital Foundation has done immeasurable work in our community.
