The Chattanooga Symphony & Opera’s First Horizon Foundation Instrumental Series will continue Thursday, Oct. 22, at 7 p.m. with Mozart’s Serenade at First Horizon Pavilion. The evening will highlight a variety of instrumentation, including Mozart’s Serenade No. 11 for winds and Tchaikovsky’s heartfelt Serenade for Strings. A flute trio will also perform contemporary Atlanta composer Nicole Chamberlain’s Orion’s Belt.
"This concert will feature a string orchestra with one of my favorite string pieces, Tchaikovsky's Serenade for Strings,” says Kayoko Dan, CSO music director. “This magnificent work is full of drama, sweet melodies, and beautiful harmonies. In addition, two other ensembles will be featured, Mozart Serenade for winds and a flute trio by Chamberlain. I am looking forward to returning to the podium and sharing these works with the Chattanooga audience."
