Clarksville, TN – Tickets are on sale now for the Gateway Chamber Orchestra’s 2019-2020 Season – “Emotion Abounds”. This season, the GCO will perform inspiring musical programs that will transport audiences through time to explore the passionate works that have influenced centuries of music.
Join the GCO for a musical experience that will surprise, entertain and move you as you listen to some of the most noteworthy musicians in the Southeast.
This season presents a slate of powerful and emotional programs, featuring favorite composers of the GCO including Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Franz Schubert, Arnold Schoenberg and of course, Franz Joseph Haydn. Internationally acclaimed soloists are scheduled to perform, including Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra principal flutist Lorna McGhee.
“The 2019-2020 season continues a thread from last season by featuring works and composers who have helped shape our unique musical voice,” said Gateway Chamber Orchestra Music Director Gregory Wolynec.
“Each program will explore a wide range of emotions in collaboration with exhilarating soloists. The sublime beauty of Mozart’s Gran Partita, the symphonic weight of Schubert’s Tragic and the radiant glow of Schoenberg’s Transfigured Night will be just a few of the highlights of the upcoming season,” Wolynec stated.
In addition to the Masterworks Series, the Gateway Chamber Orchestra will offer a number of special events, including a family-friendly concert featuring Tchaikovsky and Ellington’s Nutcracker Suite with a special reading by celebrated author Anna Celenza and the holiday favorite Winter Baroque. The 2nd Annual BBQ, Brews & Beethoven will feature Copland’s Appalachian Spring, local craft beer and delicious BBQ.
