Chattanooga Symphony hits a homerun this Saturday
If you want to experience the symphony from a sports fans’ perspective, head down to the Tivoli Theatre this Saturday where symphony meets baseball for a night.
Taking the stage with the Chattanooga Symphony is conductor Bob Bernhardt, theatre organist Ken Double, and The Choo Choo Chorus. Together they create a show inspired by sports just in time for spring.
Experience the exhilarating talents of the symphony performing football spirit songs, Olympic themes, and hockey, tennis, and horse-racing related pieces in the first half of the performance. It’ll surely have your heart pounding with every note, the same adrenaline that ripples through your chest when the batter cracks a baseball clear out of the park. The second half of the performance will feature baseball and those high-flying hits that get your blood pumping.
CSO’s “Play Ball” concert is dedicated to symphony and sports, two things that are usually not considered to blend together. However, the symphonic melodies align with athletic competition and capture the particular spirit of a sport.
Whatever sport you’re into, or if you’re just into good symphonic music, Bernhardt hopes that, “You’ll love this show as much as I will.”
The show couldn’t be more fitting as baseball season is upon us. Soon the Chattanooga Lookouts will grace the field, but CSO hopes to bring a black tie event to the playing field. Instead of black suits and ties, put on your favorite sport jersey and throw on a baseball cap for a night on the musical fields.
