Tickets are now available for the next public performance in the Chattanooga Symphony & Opera’s First Horizon Foundation Instrumental Series. Eine Kleine Nachtmusik will take place Saturday, Oct. 17, at 3 and 6 p.m. and Sunday, Oct. 18, at 3 p.m. at First Cumberland Presbyterian.
The program will feature a variety of upbeat and celebratory works, including Mozart’s popular Eine Kleine Nachtmusik (“A little night music”), local composer Tim Hinck’s Stumpjumper, American composer Raymond Premru’s Two Pieces for trombone, contemporary composer Eric Ewazen’s Eaglehawk, and Gounod’s Little Symphony.
The concerts are part of the organization’s First Horizon Foundation Instrumental Series, featuring the CSO ensembles performing for smaller, socially distant audiences at venues throughout the community.
"After seven months since my last concert conducting with the CSO, I am beyond excited for the opportunity to conduct and make music with my wonderful colleagues,” said CSO Music Director Kayoko Dan. “This concert features three separate ensembles, a trio of two trombones and tuba on works by Premru and Ewazen, a woodwind ensemble on Gounod's beautiful Symphonie, and a string orchestra on Mozart's beloved Eine Kleine Nachtmusik and Tim Hinck's Stumpjumpers. I am particularly excited to feature Tim's work as he is a Chattanooga composer, and I have always enjoyed working with him as both a conductor and a flutist."
To ensure proper social distancing, capacity is limited for performances in the First Horizon Foundation Instrumental Series. Tickets will not be sold at the venue and attendees will be required to wear masks, follow social distancing guidelines, and adhere to the CSO's COVID-19 related concert health and safety guidelines, which can be found at chattanoogasymphony.org/concert-health-safety.
