Intersection’s Transfiguration The Platform • March 26


i t h i t s d e b u t p e r f o r m a n c e , Tra n s f i g u ra t i o n , Intersection aims to redefine the traditional concert experience and begin classical music’s next chapter. Contemporary music merged with dance and visual art is staged in a new and uncommon space where the divide between performers and audience disappears. Kelly Corcoran, Intersection’s Artistic Director, said, “All but one of the pieces, Arvo Pärt’s Fratres, have never before been performed in Nashville. This music is totally new to our city. That is unique, but the collaboration we have going on with local art organizations New Dialect and Zeitgeist Gallery will make it a night like no other. Intersection breaks apart the traditional music experience, and the performance will literally surround you.” Intersection is Nashville’s first ensemble group devoted to performing contemporary music only. The group, comprised of 19 experts, 15 of whom are from Nashville, aspires to present contemporary music at the highest levels right from the start. Jennifer Curtis, violinist, composer, and member of the International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE), is going to become a core member.

Intersection also plans to offer concerts for all ages, as well as family programming. Their next performance POOH, ZOO AND A DINO NAMED SUE will be presented on Sunday, June 7. Transfiguration takes place on Thursday, March 26, at 7:30 p.m. at The Platform, 1500 2nd Avenue South. For more information, visit
