Chattanooga Symphony And Opera Presents Apollo And Jupiter With Chattanooga Ballet

Thursday, March 5, 2020

The Chattanooga Symphony & Opera will close its 2019/20 Chamber Series with Apollo and Jupiter on Sunday, March 15 at 3 p.m. at the Chattanooga State Humanities Theatre.

The concert will feature Mozart’s grand and energetic Symphony No. 41 “Jupiter” and acclaimed 19th century composer Felix Mendelssohn’s Konzertstück No. 1 in F minor for Clarinet, which will highlight the talents of CSO musicians Robert West and Steve Tonkinson.

The Chattanooga Ballet will accompany the orchestra with brand new choreography for Apollo Musagète, Stravinsky’s beloved ballet depicting the Greek god of music, Apollo, and his interactions with the Muses. 

“Stravinsky's work is synonymous with choreographic great George Balanchine, so taking on a new interpretation is a daunting and humbling experience,” says Brian McSween, Chattanooga Ballet artistic director.

“It is important that Chattanooga Ballet present a work that is quintessentially its own, and that the city of Chattanooga has arts organizations willing to take on new creative endeavors and partnerships. I am very proud of our dancers and the extent to which they have invested themselves physically and artistically. I am confident in them, and confident the audience will greatly enjoy the afternoon.”
 
Seating for the concert is general admission. Tickets are $28 and can be purchased by calling the CSO Box Office at 423-267-8583 or by visiting the CSO’s website at chattanoogasymphony.org. Ticket-holders are invited to attend a post-concert talk immediately following the performance.

We Must Love

I feel it too. It is easy to hate. Maybe we could try harder to love. Hate seeps into our bones, rules our integrity, and convinces us to forsake those we love. Hate is toxic. It spreads to our neighbors; people we once trusted. It spreads to our coworkers and friends; people who once trusted us. We lose sight of what truly matters. That is what we have in common now.

Roy Exum: Trump & The J-Word

There have been a bunch of times in my half-century as a writer when people – especially other writers – have called me out for being different. That in itself isn’t a bad thing (I rather like it), but Alf Van Hoose, the legendary sports editor, told me once in a crowd, “You are a rarity … you’ll put the word ‘Jesus’ in a paragraph, and I appreciate that.” But it’s true - the scariest ...
