Chattanooga Symphony & Opera: The Rite of Spring
Tivoli Theatre
Thursday, April 24, at 7:30 p.m.
Shostakovich's Cello Concerto No. 1, performed by Wesley Baldwin, was conceived and composed prior to the deterioration of his health and is, for the most part, a dark and introspective work. Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring was an avant-garde ballet and orchestral work when written in 1913 and caused riots among audience members. Stravinsky himself has described it as "a musical-choreographic work, [representing] pagan Russia...unified by a single idea: the mystery and great surge of the creative power of Spring."

Jazzanooga: Gregory Porter and Avery*Sunshine
Robert Kirk Walker Community Theatre
Sunday, April 27, at 6:45 p.m. 
Some critics are inspired to comment on Porter as a new "king' of jazz," and a "leader of the pack," a performer of extraordinary presence who has been compared with the greatest of the greats, such as Joe Williams, Nat Cole, Donny Hathaway, and Marvin Gaye.  As musically solid as his recordings are and as powerful and honest as Porter's magnificent voice is, it may just well be the brilliance of his poetry and the unguarded depth of his emotional delivery that is most fueling his rapid rise to fame.ALSO FEATURING: Avery*Sunshine - Combining beautifully soulful melodies, with a touch of jazz and more than a little earthy gospel, Atlanta songstress Avery*Sunshine emerges as one of the strongest voices in R&B, Soul and Jazz. Along with being known for her powerful voice and appreciation of different music genres, the Avery is a trained pianist graduating from Spelman College in Atlanta, Ga.
