In partnership with Americanafest, Rufus Wainwright makes his can’t-miss Schermerhorn debut with the Nashville Symphony for one night only on Tuesday, September 19 at 7:30 PM. More information and tickets at nashvillesymphony.org/rufuswainwright.
With the 20th anniversary of the release of his Want albums (Want One and Want Two) that had a huge impact on his career in the UK and other European countries, Rufus performs both entire albums song—for—song, with beautifully arranged orchestrations, with the Nashville Symphony. Building on an impressive series of concerts with orchestras including the San Francisco Symphony, Chicago Symphony, Residentie Orkest, Britten Sinfonia, Orquestra Gulbenkian, Montreal Symphony, and Orchestre National d’Ile-de-Francewith, and with conductors including Joana Carneiro, Johannes Debus, Jayce Ogren, Jeffrey Kahane, and others, Rufus has created a unique program for orchestra around his two iconic albums.
