Chattanooga Symphony premieres new season Thursday
The Chattanooga Symphony and Opera is celebrating their 84th anniversary this year, and will be kicking off their new season Thursday evening at the historic Tivoli Theater in downtown Chattanooga.
With music inspired from the early Renaissance and late Romanic periods, it’s sure to be a beautifully performed evening. Perhaps this is the perfect date to brighten the spark in your romance? What better way to woo someone than with the classic beauty of the CSO?
The show features the passions and adventures of Richard Strauss’ Don Juan, the legendary “Seducer of Seville”, a Spanish folk legend who is said to have been a famous lover with more than a thousand sexual conquests all across Europe. We’re going to bet that the ladies really loved his tunes.
A rush of energetic and romantic essences is expected in the Fanfare for the UnCommon Woman, No. 2, the second of five compositions by composer Joan Tower, who draws her inspiration from the daring and adventurous spirit of the modern woman.
Award winning pianist Ning An will also be performing the familiar Piano Concerto No. 2, one of the most beloved compositions in classic music, by the late romantic period Russian composer and pianist, Sergei Rachmaninoff.
The Chattanooga Symphony and Opera is starting off the 2016-17 season with mesmerizing as ever talented musicians that anyone with a taste for classical music will greatly enjoy.
