The Nashville Symphony Orchestra and Chorus won’t wait for the flowers to bloom. Associate Conductor Kelly Corcoran, the orchestra and chorus are already gearing up for their free spring concert. The orchestra has provided the following release:
Nashville Symphony Orchestra and Chorus will present a free concert, “Voices of Spring,” on Sunday, March 10, at 3 p.m. Free tickets are available from the Nashville Symphony box office at (615) 687-6400, or by clicking here.
“This is a program filled with beloved choral repertoire,” says Nashville Symphony Associate Conductor Kelly Corcoran. “Randall Thompson’s Frostiana sets poetry by the great Robert Frost and will be familiar to singers of all ages. Bach’s Singet dem Herrn is a virtuoso work for double chorus that stretches the vocal agility of every singer. We’ll also perform two gorgeous works by Brahms, Nänie and Schicksalied, along with Bruckner’s monumental Psalm 150 and one work written by the Symphony’s former Choral Director George Mabry. For anyone who loves choral music, this is a program not to miss!”
