The upcoming symphony season begins later this fall, on Sept. 8. It boasts more than 90 classical, pop, jazz and family concerts. There will also be special events with huge artists, film favorites with live orchestral accompaniment, showcases and much more. This may be the Nashville Symphony’s biggest season yet!
The orchestra will perform works by Beethoven, Mozart, Tchaikovsky, Mahler and more during this season. Works by American composers including Leonard Bernstein, John Adams, John Corigliano and Christopher Rouse are also on the calendar. Another huge highlight will be when the symphony partners with the Nashville Ballet for Carmina Burana. A new film will accompany the production alongside the orchestra, adult chorus, children’s chorus and the ballet. The Nashville Ballet’s artistic director Paul Vasterling has even updated the performance’s choreography.
The upcoming season will also include familiar names like McBride, Chenoweth, pianists Emanuel Ax and Jean-Yves Thibaudet and violinists Midori and Gil Shaham. Conductor Robert Spano, The Mavericks, jazz legend Branford Marsalis and Jon Batiste are also on the schedule.
“The Nashville Symphony strives to serve the entire Middle Tennessee community, and our new season promises to deliver world-class performances across a wide array of genres,” Alan D. Valentine, Nashville Symphony president & CEO, explains. “From our season-opening performance of works by Kenneth Schermerhorn’s mentor, Leonard Bernstein, to our collaboration with partners like Nashville Ballet, with whom we will present a multimedia, multi-sensory production of Carmina Burana like no one has ever seen, the 2018/19 season is chock full of unique, varied and exciting programs.”
“We can’t wait to share all of the great music we have in store next season, and we are deeply grateful for the tremendous support our vibrant community continues to provide the Symphony, enabling all that we do.”
