10 County Musical Caravan Project Brings CSO Musicians To Region’s Senior Centers

Kick-off At The Eastgate Senior Center

Friday, January 26, 2018

The professional musicians of the Chattanooga Symphony & Opera Wind Quintet will be at the Eastgate Senior Activity Center for a free performance as they kick off a 10-county musical caravan to promote lifelong learning. This project, in partnership with the Chattanooga Symphony & Opera, is one of 19 funded by the Tennessee Arts Commission through its Creative Aging TN grant program. 

Studies show that musical performances in live settings lead to increased cognitive stimulation and enrichment, and these performances will include selections from musicals, operas, popular music, and the classical repertoire. From Mozart’s “Queen of the Night” aria to Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody”, nothing is off limits. This is a free performance, and anyone is welcome (including families and children). Door-prizes include tickets to see the Chattanooga Symphony & Opera perform at the Tivoli Theatre. 

The performance schedule for other locations is listed on the Area Agency on Aging Website at www.setaaad.org. For more information on the CSO musicians and other community events visit: http://chattanoogasymphony.org/education-community/community/.
