LYNN PEITHMAN, Cello Member of the Nashville Symphony since: 1985 Hometown: Livonia, Michigan What do you enjoy about being a member of the Nashville Symphony? I have enjoyed being a member of the Nashville Symphony for 29 years. I respect my colleagues, and I love to be a part of beautiful performances. We have some incredible talent in our orchestra, and I get to hear them perform all the time! In general, this is a very smart bunch of folks, highly educated and extremely dedicated. No one seems to take themselves too seriously, though, and our senses of humor help get us through a lot of stressful situations. What inspired you to play the cello, and when did you know that you wanted to be a professional musician? My mother was a piano teacher, and she taught me piano when I was a very young child. My elementary school gave fifth graders the opportunity to begin orchestral instruments. Since I was about to get braces, my parents suggested a string instrument. I liked the sound of the cello best. Becoming a professional cellist was a natural progression over the years. Even though I played various sports in school and had top grades, I believe I was given the most support and encouragement in my musical studies. Being offered a full-tuition scholarship at the University of Michigan for my undergraduate and graduate years, it was just a “given” that this was my field. Do you have a favorite composer or piece of music? I couldn’t possibly have one favorite composer. Of course, it’s always nice when a composer gives the cello a nice melody. As far as the classics, I would lean toward many Russian composers…but variety is the spice of life.  10

What do you most like about living in Nashville, and what makes our community special? Nashville has grown on me over the years, and I truly love living here. Besides the weather being more moderate than in Michigan, I have to say that it’s the kind and friendly nature of so many people here that makes Nashville special to me. It is a wonderful place to raise my young son. Our city is full of musicians and music lovers. The genre of music doesn’t really matter. A great musical talent is recognized by others. This is a culturally and financially rich community that has the capacity to support its world-class symphony orchestra. We have generous and loyal fans. What do you most want people in our community to know about the Nashville Symphony? I want Nashville to know that its symphony wants to play music that Nashville wants to hear. The musicians have dedicated their lives to their craft. If it’s written for an orchestra, we can play it. If you haven’t tried us in a while, come back and listen. If you want to hear more of something, be vocal. If you like it, we probably do, too.

Born on February 1, 1859, in Dublin, Ireland; died on May 26, 1924, in New York City Cello Concerto No. 2 in E minor, Op. 30 Composed: 1893-94 First performance: March 9, 1894, with the composer as the soloist and Anton Seidl conducting the Philharmonic Society (precursor of the New York Philharmonic) in New York City First Nashville Symphony performance: These are the orchestra’s first performances.

he drive to forge an autonomous identity for the various arts in the United States — one independent from European-imported traditions — expressed itself in stages and at different rates for literature, visual art and music. A thriving and vibrant American voice was already well established in fiction, for example, by the middle of the 19th century. In music, however, the seeds for this development were still being sown near the end of that century, and the process involved considerable input from European composers and conductors who made their way to the New World. Among these was Victor Herbert. Born in Dublin, Herbert came of age in an arts-loving family in London and in Stuttgart, where he received a rigorous education in cello and composition. He earned a reputation as a 16

cellist playing for various European orchestras, and in 1886 he was signed (together with his new bride, the celebrated soprano Therese Förster) to join the Metropolitan Opera in New York, where he served as principal cellist of that fledgling company’s orchestra. Gustav Mahler, Herbert’s contemporary, would later be engaged for a brief directorship at the Met near the end of his career, in 1908. Herbert and his wife ended up staying in their newly adopted city and becoming U.S. citizens. Along with his cello career, he led a busy life as a conductor, teacher and composer. He became especially famous for his work for the musical stage, writing European-style operettas such as Babes in Toyland, Sweethearts and Naughty Marietta, which were Broadway hits of the preWorld War I years. The second of Herbert’s two numbered concertos for his own instrument barely predates his theater career, which was launched later in the same year. It is the one example from Herbert’s catalogue of instrumental works to have found a place in the repertory — not surprisingly, given the immediate appeal of this music and the many interesting ways he uses to present the cello as both a virtuoso and a lyrical protagonist. Herbert composed this concerto during the years when another European celebrity, Antonín Dvořák, had similarly made his way to the New World for a sojourn as director of the National Conservatory of Music, recently founded in New York by Jeannette Meyers Thurber. Herbert, who also served on the Conservatory’s cello faculty, became friends with Dvořák — he even played cello in the premiere of Dvořák’s New World Symphony — and won enthusiastic praise from his Czech peer when he introduced the new concerto in 1894. Indeed, with his Cello Concerto No. 2, Herbert validated the idea of an ambitious, symphonically designed concerto for this instrument before Dvořák undertook his own Cello Concerto in B minor, which holds pride of place as the definitive cello concerto.

W hat to listen fo r Designed in the conventional threemovement format, Herbert’s Second Cello Concerto nevertheless aims to be more than a

In addition to solo cello, the Cello Concerto No. 2 is scored for 2 flutes, 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 4 horns, 2 trumpets, 2 trombones, timpani and strings.

fter decades of being overlooked and generally considered a relic of turn-of-thecentury late Romanticism, the music of Gustav Mahler has found its way into the very center of the repertory for today’s orchestras. To perform the entire cycle of Mahler symphonies no longer suggests an outlandish ambition. Indeed, it has even come to represent a new gold standard for conductors and ensembles. Yet it has taken a while for contemporary orchestras to appreciate particular Mahler

symphonies, notably the Sixth and Seventh. The latter poses extraordinary interpretive challenges. Its enigmatic and even baffling character is in keeping with its kaleidoscopic emotional range, as well as its quintessentially Mahlerian use of unique orchestral colors. Mahler himself had unusual difficulty finding his way into this music. Once he managed to do so, however, composition of the Seventh proceeded swiftly. Working from the inside out, he began with the second and fourth movements InConcert

question-and-answer pattern. Echoes of Wagnerian yearning, à la Tristan, are perhaps unavoidable, but the melodic aura of the song-form Andante tranquillo (in B major), with its stepwise theme, asserts a personality of its own comprised of longing, passion and a sprinkle of nostalgia. The finale reverts to the mood of the opening movement, even reclaiming its thematic ideas in slightly altered form, and the Andante’s melody likewise is reworked into the proceedings. Here, though, Herbert demands both expressive depth and rapid-fire virtuosity from his soloist. The rhythmic vitality of his writing propels the music forward into a fiery major-key conclusion.


showcase for the cello. Herbert writes in a clearly European style informed by late Romanticism and by the Central European tradition of symphonically developed motifs. His treatment of the material reveals a typical Romantic preoccupation with the organic connection between ideas. The family resemblances between each of the three movements — which are all interconnected without movement breaks — are easy to hear even on a first encounter. Herbert’s dramatic flair emerges in the orchestra’s opening statement of the central thematic idea, an impetuous figure that is soon taken up by the solo cello and given a more reflective treatment. A major challenge throughout, given Herbert’s sizable ensemble, is achieving an effective balance so that the cello’s voice remains transparent amid the orchestral outbursts — hence the many variants on a

se r ies

of his overall five-movement design. Both of these movements, which he characterized as “night music” pieces, were composed in the summer of 1904, a period coinciding with completion of the profoundly dark Sixth Symphony. Then came a stumbling block in the summer following, when Mahler took his usual retreat from the stress of Vienna and headed to his composer’s getaway in the Austrian Alps. Mahler’s struggle involved how to work out the grand architectural design of this symphony. In a fit of creative desperation, he even considered abandoning the movements in progress but was then seized by an unexpected moment of inspiration. Mahler later recalled how this took place while he was being transported in a small boat across one of the lakes in this idyllic landscape: “With the first stroke of the oars, the theme (or rather, the rhythm and style) of the introduction to the first movement came to me.” The floodgates opened up, and Mahler sketched out the three other movements of the Seventh within less than two months. While Mahler has become a central figure in the contemporary experience of the symphony, his music is still marked by a stubborn cliché: the notion of Mahler as a kind of poet laureate of existential despair, of 20th-century angst. That simple formula allows no room for the abundance of sheer fantasy in the Seventh Symphony. To be sure, there are moments of darkness, even terror, in this music. The Seventh even incorporates forbidding echoes of its predecessor — sometimes known as the “Tragic” Symphony — but then goes on to mollify them. At the same time, the Seventh ranks among Mahler’s most forwardlooking, innovative achievements. The qualities


j a nua ry 2 0 1 4

and textures of its sound world anticipate later works, from the “night music” of Béla Bartók to the ironic quotation marks of postmodernism. One easy-to-recognize signature of Mahler’s style is his dramatic juxtaposition of contrasting elements. The Seventh takes this strategy to a new extreme. There are references to both Romantic and Classical images from the musical past, but Mahler filters these in such a way that they seem distanced. The nocturnal imagery of the Seventh, moreover, evokes something beyond the melancholy or introspective attitude of the Romantics. His sense of night ranges from richly poetic dreamscapes to offbeat parody and even boisterous humor, all leading up to a perplexing finale that bursts on the scene and, like an exuberant non sequitur, overwrites the music we’ve heard up to this point. The Seventh Symphony bears the unofficial nickname “Song of the Night.” What especially troubled its earliest critics was the continually shifting demeanor of the music as it changes from one mood to another without apparent “motivation” — as if mimicking the irrational processes of the unconscious mind. Mahler’s disdain for programmatic descriptions gives the listener no easy narrative subtext to explain the very brief outline he provided one of his friends: “Three night pieces; the finale, bright day. As foundation for the whole, the first movement.” This description, with its contrast of night and day, hardly follows the familiar pattern of the “victory symphony” — the progression from troubled darkness to conquering light. Rather than a monolithic threat, the darkness inherent in the Seventh is enormously varied, shaped by Mahler’s prismatic imagination.

that reinterpret the Romantic nocturne and serenade, respectively.

se r ies

A shadowy mystique permeates the Seventh’s opening music. Over a stuttering, funereal accompaniment of unstable harmony, Mahler superimposes the cry of a “tenor horn.” Normally associated with brass bands, this horn’s unusual sonority is our initial clue to the work’s highly original orchestration. The first theme features a dotted, descending three-note pattern, as well as a long-short-short rhythm; both of these recur as unifying devices throughout the work. The introduction accelerates into a fiery Allegro, its music transformed into a driving march that bears a close resemblance to the opening theme of Mahler’s Sixth Symphony. The lush, yearningly lyrical second theme, entrusted to the strings, serves as the critical center of the movement during the development, when it emerges like a full moon from a cloudbank and reaches a swooning, visionary climax. Mahler then plummets headlong into the introductory music again, beginning a highly inventive and varied process of recapitulation. The second movement represents yet another kind of march, one that slowly emerges amid echoes, fluttering sounds and night calls before settling into a major-minor swagger that is Mahler’s musical equivalent of chiaroscuro. The effect is enticingly ambiguous. As in Bartók’s night music, birdcalls and sensuous new colors (including cowbells) emerge under cover of darkness. The Schubertian charm of the contrasting melody is just one of the nostalgic evocations of the past that figure into the Seventh Symphony’s middle movements. “Shadowy” (schattenhaft) is Mahler’s marking for the central Scherzo, with its misplaced, tipsy accents. It’s a spectral waltz that both mocks and seems to outdo Romantic grotesquerie. The oboe’s cheerful tune in the trio comes back in a funhouse distortion when played by trombones and tuba, while echoes of the symphony’s opening theme heighten the symmetry by recurring here at the center. The delicious, painterly details of Mahler’s


The composer’s wife Alma suggested that Mahler had wanted to evoke the magic of his beloved writers from the early 19th century, including Joseph Eichendorff. The middle movements, she wrote, were shot through with “visions of Eichendorff ’s poetry, rippling fountains, German Romanticism.” Biographer Henry Louis de La Grange points to similarities in atmosphere shared by the poet Novalis’ Hymns to the Night, with their “shadows of the past… vague yearnings, and deceived hopes,” and by Nietzsche’s philosopher-prophet Zarathustra, whose epiphany-like “Midnight Song” Mahler had previously set in his Third Symphony. The Zarathustra reference, writes La Grange, elicits “a night of clairvoyance and heightened lucidity whose revelation is more essential than that of light.” Conductor Willem Mengelberg, an early Mahler champion, found in the Seventh’s second movement a background of visual inspiration from Rembrandt’s famous painting The Night Watch. Another colleague refined this reference by claiming that the real model was not so much Rembrandt’s subject matter as his technique of shading and chiaroscuro. This turns out to be a particularly insightful observation, for it can be applied to the work’s overall ambivalence. In general, La Grange observes, the Seventh “seems to welcome intrusions with a strange passivity, to mirror the strange diversity of the 20th-century man’s experience, a diversity which has become impossible to synthesize…in a disillusioned present which knows…that ambiguities can never be solved.” For all this ambiguity, the work’s five movements cohere, thanks to Mahler’s architectural symmetry. The first and fifth movements counterbalance each other in proportion. The two “night music” movements, together with the central Scherzo they flank, form an internal continuity and are roughly equal in length to each of the outer movements. The result is a neatly balanced arch shape (ABCBA), in which the odd-numbered movements unfold in modified versions of conventional forms (sonata, scherzo with trio, rondo finale), while the second and fourth movements are more akin to fantasias

scoring abound here and in the ensuing “night music,” an “Andante amoroso” that serves as a gentle remake/parody of the lover’s serenade. This is also the first movement written from the start in a major key (F). Though Mahler has reduced his large orchestra to chamber dimensions, he colors it by adding amorous plucking on mandolin and guitar to intensify the ironic nostalgia. The finale has always posed the Seventh’s interpretive riddle. Pounding timpani set in motion the brassy fanfare of its multipart rondo theme. One segment resembles a drunken imitation of the pompously marching cheer of Wagner’s Meistersinger Prelude. Indeed, the C-major brightness of this music — which Mahler tellingly designates “Allegro ordinario” — intrudes so unexpectedly that it seems to thumb its nose at the notion of “triumph” over darkness, rather as Shostakovich would arguably do in his Fifth Symphony. Amid the elaborate variations on the hyperactive rondo music, which recurs seven times, the opening theme is transformed from a remembered dream to a statement of clamorous joy, closing the work so forcefully that the ironic reading by itself seems overly reductive. Bells ring out in a resounding affirmation of life: all of it, night and day, including the next-to-last chord, whose harmony introduces one final ambiguous touch before the clear finish. Mahler’s Symphony No. 7 is scored for piccolo, 4 flutes (4th doubling 2nd piccolo), 3 oboes, English horn, 3 clarinets, clarinet in E-flat, bass clarinet, 3 bassoons, contrabassoon, tenor horn, 4 horns, 3 trumpets, 3 trombones, tuba, timpani, bass drum, snare drum, cymbals, tam-tam, triangle, glockenspiel, tambourine, rute, cowbells, tubular bells, 2 harps, guitar, mandolin and strings. —Thomas May, the Nashville Symphony’s program annotator, is a writer and translator who covers classical and contemporary music.

About the artist P OPS se r ies

ROBERTA FLACK “I like to think of myself as a musician who has found some original meaning in songs that maybe everybody else has done,” Roberta Flack says when describing Let It Be, her new CD of Beatles tunes. “I’d like to think that my producers and I found some new directions and new meanings. I think that’s the sign of a good interpreter of music.” The universality that Flack speaks of can be located in her own long and deep personal history with the songs on this collection. Right from the start of her career, when she was a young woman juggling her career as a schoolteacher with her calling as a performer, Beatles songs played an important part, proving their boundless appeal. “When I made the transition from the classroom and was moonlighting at nightclubs in Washington, D.C.,” she recalls, “I chose songs for both settings from the songs we all heard on the radio. As a teacher, it was my responsibility to teach my kids something about music theory, and I used these songs as a means to do that because they already knew and loved them.” A child prodigy who won a music scholarship to Howard University at age 15, Flack came of artistic age and political consciousness just as America was convulsing on its own terms of existence. Starting with her classic debut album, 1969’s First Take, she carved out a career filled with massive radio and chart hits (“First Time Ever I Saw Your Face,” “Killing Me Softly With His Song,” “Feel Like Making Love,” and — with the late, great Donny Hathaway — “Where is the Love?,” “The Closer I Get to You” and so many more), countless awards (including four GRAMMYs) and worldwide critical acclaim. Let It Be is in many ways a full-circle artistic statement from Roberta Flack, and it’s an exquisite re-imagining of Beatles songs. She’s justifiably proud of it but also laughs, “It’s hard to


j a nua ry 2 0 1 4

mess up a Beatles song unless you just don’t know what the ham sandwich you’re doing.” And in explaining both what she thinks makes the music of the Beatles so enduring, and what moves her to continue making music, she says simply, “I think music is such a powerful means of expressing what the world needs now, and that’s understanding between individuals, between races, between countries. I think music has the potential for being the answer to all those deep questions we ask ourselves as human beings.” ALBERT GEORGE SCHRAM, conductor A native of the Netherlands, AlbertGeorge Schram has conducted orchestras in a number of U.S. cities, including Nashville, where he has conducted on the Pops Series since 2006. His longest tenure has been with the Columbus Symphony Orchestra, where he has worked in a variety of capacities since 1979. As a regular guest conductor of the Charlotte Symphony Orchestra, he opened the orchestra’s new permanent summer home, Symphony Park, in 2002. From 1990 to 1996, he served as resident conductor of the Louisville Orchestra. In 2008 Schram was invited to conduct the Orquesta Sinfónica Nacional of Bolivia and the Orquesta Sinfónica UNCuyo in Mendoza, Argentina. His other foreign conducting engagements have included the KBS Symphony Orchestra and the Taegu Symphony Orchestra in Korea, and the Orchester der Allgemeinen Musikgesellschaft Luzern in Switzerland. He has returned to his native Holland to conduct the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic and the Netherlands Broadcast Orchestra.

Representing the important role of vocal music in African-American history, the Celebration Chorus has played an important role in “Let Freedom Sing” since its inception in 1993. Formed and managed by local recording and solo artist Odessa Settles, the chorus consists of singers from the Nashville Symphony Chorus and dozens of area colleges, high schools, universities and places of worship, with diverse ethnic, religious and cultural backgrounds. The diversity within the ensemble displays the ecumenism advocated by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. for “all of God’s children — black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Catholics and Protestants…to stand and sing” together.

CELEBRATION YOUTH CHORUS MARGARET CAMPBELLE-HOLMAN, choral director Celebration Youth Chorus (CYC) reaches into the rich communities of Nashville through Choral Arts Link (CAL), the parent nonprofit of the MET Singers.

ADÉ WILLIAMS, violin Adé Williams is Junior Division First Place Laureate of the 2012 Annual Sphinx Competition, presented by the DTE Energy Foundation. She performs as part of the Sphinx Soloist Program, sponsored by the GM Foundation. Williams, 14, is the first William Warfield scholarship recipient and a member of the Music Institute of Chicago’s (MIC) Academy program. Named Artist-in-Residence with the Waukegan Symphony Orchestra in 2012, she also had a year of exciting opportunities in 2011, including a 14-city tour with the Sphinx Virtuosi and international soloing in Switzerland and Bermuda. Her 2004 orchestral debut at age 6 was with the Chicago Sinfonietta as that orchestra’s youngest-ever soloist. She has soloed with the Waukegan Symphony Orchestra, the Illinois Symphony Orchestra at Millennium Park, the MIC’s Academy Strings, the Lake Forest Symphony, the Highland Park Strings at Ravinia and the South Side Family Chamber Orchestra. Williams performs on a violin by Jan van Rooyen, 2008, after the “Comte de Villares” Stradivarius, 1720, on generous loan from the Rachel Elizabeth Barton Foundation. She is honored to be a Bauder Fellow, a Links Fellow, and recipient of generous support from Alexandra Nichols. She is a charter member of the Junior Division of the Chicago Music Association.

ROD MCGAHA, trumpet Rod McGaha has the quiet assurance of a man whose musical roots are deep and strong. Born in Chicago, he began playing trumpet in fourth grade. With practice, he began developing a style that encompassed the myriad different genres and styles he grew up enjoying. He first found work playing gospel and R&B, but delved into traditional jazz wholeheartedly while attending college at Northeastern University, just outside Chicago. Trumpet legend Clark Terry discovered him playing at a local festival in 1989 and took McGaha under his considerable wing. It was when he was opening shows for a cappella group Take 6 during the early 1990s that McGaha made the move from Chicago to Music City. Shortly after the move, legendary drummer Max Roach invited the young trumpeter to join his band. Eventually, McGaha stepped forward as a bandleader and producer exploring all his jazz, pop, R&B, blues, gospel, and hip-hop influences. For McGaha, a panoramic vision of the way our shared humanity is reflected in music will always be more important than his top-shelf technique. That’s the spirit that animates every note that he plays. “It’s all about unity,” he says. “It’s about finding the common thread.”

the Music of led Zeppelin


Performed by the Nashville Symphony

Nashville Symphony Brent Havens, conductor Randy Jackson, vocals Daniel Clemens, bass Powell Randolph, drums George Cintron, guitar Robert W. Cross, producer Selections to be announced from the stage

About the Show Bridging the gulf between rock ’n’ roll and classical music, conductor/arranger Brent Havens takes the podium to present The Music of Led Zeppelin, a program he scored to extend the listening experience of Led Zeppelin’s timeless tunes. Performed by an orchestra and amplified with a full rock band, the show captures Led Zeppelin’s sheer blast and power riff for riff while cranking out new musical colors. “Our concept was to take the music as close to the originals as we could and then add some colors to enhance what Zep had done,” Havens says. “The wonderful thing with an orchestra is that you have an entire palette of sounds to call upon. The band is reproducing what Led Zeppelin did on the albums, verbatim, and then having an orchestra behind the band gives the music richness, a whole different sense of power.” Delivering a note-for-note interpretation, vocalist Randy Jackson (lead singer of the rock band Zebra) acts as a window between the audience and the reworked material. “The music itself is one thing, but Jackson more than captures the spirit of Robert Plant,” Havens says. 32

With the support of producer Rob Cross, artistic director of the Virginia Arts Festival, Havens first conceived the show for the Virginia Symphony, where Cross was orchestra manager at the time. The Music of Led Zeppelin has proven a great way to introduce rock fans to the symphony experience. “I’m sure there are people who come to these shows who have never seen their city’s symphony orchestra, and this allows them to experience something new, along with the music that they already love,” says Havens. BRENT HAVENS, conductor Berklee-trained arranger/conductor Brent Havens has written music for orchestras, feature films and virtually every kind of television. His work includes commercials, cartoons, sports music for ESPN and movies for ABC, CBS and ABC Family Channel Network. Havens has also worked with the Doobie Brothers and the Milwaukee Symphony, arranging and conducting for Harley Davidson’s 100th Anniversary Birthday Party Finale, which was attended by more than 150,000 fans.

RANDY JACKSON, vocals Randy Jackson was born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana. He started playing piano and guitar at age 5. His earliest influences were Les Paul and Mary Ford, The Beatles, The Allman Brothers, Cream, Jimi Hendrix, The Moody Blues and Led Zeppelin. In 1973, he joined Shepherds Bush as lead guitarist. It was here that he met Felix Hanemann. The two left the band a year later and soon met drummer Guy Gelso.

Together, they formed Zebra in 1975. Zebra moved to New York and in 1982 signed a recording contract with Atlantic Records. Their first album went Gold and became the fastestselling debut album in the history of the label. During the next couple of years, Zebra opened for Aerosmith, Journey, ZZ Top, Loverboy, Cheap Trick, Sammy Hagar and REO Speedwagon. The group has produced five albums with combined sales of more than 2 million. In September 1995 Jackson performed his first orchestral show with the Virginia Symphony, singing lead vocals and adding acoustic guitar to The Music of Led Zeppelin. Today he continues performing the shows nationwide to sold-out audiences and also performs the music of Pink Floyd, The Doors and The Eagles.

the world’s greatest orchestras, including the Royal Philharmonic in London, the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, the Indianapolis Symphony, the Houston Symphony, the Atlanta Symphony, the Baltimore Symphony and countless others. Havens recently completed the score for the film Quo Vadis. He is arranger/conductor for seven symphonic rock programs: the Music of Led Zeppelin, the Music of the Doors, the Music of Pink Floyd, the Music of the Eagles, the Music of Queen, the Music of Michael Jackson and, most recently, the Music of The Who.

About the artists

MARCUS ROBERTS TRIO The Marcus Roberts Trio is known for its virtuosic style — strongly rhythmic, melodic and filled with dynamic contrast. This group has an entirely new approach to jazz trio performance. Founded in 1995, it is now known around the world for its signature style. Roberts’ vision of the jazz trio grew rapidly following the selection of drummer Jason Marsalis for the drum chair in


j a nua ry 2 0 1 4

1994 (when Jason was just 17). Bassist Rodney Jordan is the most recent addition, and his profound musical intelligence has already left its mark on the group’s sound. Although the piano is typically the focus of most jazz trios, in the Marcus Roberts Trio all musicians share equally in shaping the direction of the music through changing tempo, mood, texture or form, communicated through a system of musical cues. Each member’s enormous individual talent is showcased, along with the powerfully rhythmic group sound. This has led more than a few concert-goers to comment that it sounds like a lot more than three people onstage. One of the most enjoyable aspects of a Marcus Roberts Trio concert is that it is so apparent to the audience these three musicians are really having fun playing together. Roberts’ current focus is on expanding the unique trio format to larger ensembles (ranging from quartet to septet, octet and larger). In this way, all musicians onstage will use their quick musical reflexes and creative imaginations to improvise freely as individuals and as a group while maintaining the same powerfully rhythmic group sound.

A Gift That Costs You Nothing During Your Lifetime Bequests are gifts left by a will that may include cash, securities, real estate or other assets. This is the best-known and most common type of deferred gift, because it does not impact a person's cash flow, lifestyle or family security. And it can be easy to arrange. The gift may be designated as a specified asset or amount, or as a percentage of your estate. The value of the bequest is deductible from your estate prior to computation of estate taxes. If you already have a will, you can add the Nashville Symphony as a beneficiary simply by amending your will with a document known as a codicil. To learn more, visit Have you included the Nashville Symphony in your will? Please let us know, even if you prefer to make an anonymous gift.

PLEASE NOTE: The material presented is not offered as legal or tax advice. You are urged to seek the advice of your tax advisor, attorney and/or financial planner to determine whether a contemplated gift fits well into your overall circumstances and planning. 58
