The Chattanooga Symphony & Opera will continue its new First Horizon Foundation Instrumental Series with Brass & Friends on Friday, Sept. 25 at 7 p.m. and Saturday, Sept. 26 at 3 p.m.and 7 p.m.at the Collegedale Commons. The show will highlight the CSO Brass Quintet and CSO Wind Quintet as they perform works inspired by pirate tales, the classic narratives of Carmen and West Side Story and more.
The concert is the second public performance of the organization’s 2020/21 season, which was
reformatted to include smaller concerts of limited audience sizes as a precautionary measure against
COVID-19. The updated schedule also includes performances at a wide variety of new venues
throughout the community, and Brass & Friends will mark the CSO’s first concert at the Collegedale
“Our next concert features the CSO Brass and Woodwind Quintets,” says Kayoko Dan, CSO music
director. “Both groups will play a variety of works from Bernstein to Bizet, but I am particularly excited
to introduce Chattanooga composer Douglas Hedwig's Onyx for Brass Quintet. I think the audience will find this concert to be upbeat and fun, and I am looking forward to performing at ‘new to us’ venue, Collegedale Commons.”
Tickets will not be sold at the venue and capacity is limited for concerts in the Instrumental Series, so
the public is encouraged to buy their tickets early. 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.
