Nashville Symphony to Host First Live Concerts in Over a Year Beginning This Weekend

Members of Nashville Symphony take the Schermerhorn Symphony Center stage for the first time in over a year on May 28 & 29, as part of the Summer Chamber Music Series. The series offers free tickets to the community to enjoy music in an intimate setting inside Laura Turner Concert Hall. After this weekend, there will be four more performances on June 4, 19, 25 & 26.

Opening the May 28 & 29 concerts will be a selection of Bach pieces performed on marimba by Assistant Principal Percussionist Rich Graber. That will be followed by Massenet’s Méditation from Thaïs, featuring Concertmaster Jun Iwasaki and harpist Licia Jaskunas. Jaskunas will be joined by Principal Keyboardist Robert Marler for a performance of Grandjany’s Aria in Classic Style. The evening will close with Tchaikovsky’s String Sextet in D Minor, “Souvenir de Florence,” featuring Iwasaki, Violinist Jimin Lim, Principal Violist Daniel Reinker, Ciolist Anthony Parce, Acting Assistant Principal Cellist Xiao-Fan Zhang and Cellist Keith Nicholas.

Only 500 seats are available for each performance, on a first come, first served basis. Seats can be reserved at NashvilleSymphony.org/SummerChamber.

All performances will run for approximately one hour without an intermission. Advance registration is required. Due to safety protocols, on-site registration is not available. Registration is free, and donations are very much appreciated.
