Chattanooga Symphony And Opera Presents Beethoven And Mahler Nov. 14 And 15

Thursday, November 5, 2020

The Chattanooga Symphony & Opera will continue the First Horizon Foundation Instrumental Series by highlighting two of classical music’s most celebrated composers during Beethoven & Mahler on Saturday, Nov. 14 at 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. and Sunday, Nov. 15 at 3 p.m. at the DoubleTree Hotel by Hilton - Downtown Chattanooga. The program will feature Beethoven’s Sextet and Mahler’s popular Adagietto for winds, as well as Debussy's Danses sacree et danse profane and Tennessee composer David P. Sartor’s spirited Black Ball Counts Double for strings. 

“This concert will feature CSO Principal Harpist Caroline Hudson with string orchestra on two beautiful works, Debussy's Danses and Mahler's Adagietto”, said Kayoko Dan, CSO music director. “Additionally, we are performing David Sartor's Black Ball Counts Double, which was written as an homage to the composer's grandmother and her bagatelle game, and we will continue celebrating Beethoven's 250th birthday with his Sextet for two clarinets, two bassoons and two horns.” 

Concerts in the First Horizon Foundation Instrumental Series feature smaller ensembles of musicians and limited audience sizes. 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.

This is based on a 2020 Pew Research poll of about 3,000 American Latinos. Those who want for “Latinx” to become the default say it’s preferable because it’s ... (click for more)
