MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Hundreds of people are fighting to keep the Sunset Symphony as part of Memphis in May.

Festival organizers say 2015 will be the last year for the symphony to play along the river as they explore other types of attractions.

However, more than 300 people have signed a petition on Change.org, saying in part, "While the festival claims that such events have lost popularity in other cities, Memphis is not "other cities," nor have Memphians been properly surveyed about whether they would like the Sunset Symphony to continue."
