Every November, each of us takes time to give thanks, and this year in particular I know that many of us will take some extra time to reflect on the many, many reasons we have to be thankful. Most especially that we live in the Volunteer State, a community of caring, resourceful and resilient people. As the reopening of Schermerhorn Symphony Center on New Year’s Eve nears, we at the Nashville Symphony are deeply grateful for the outpouring of support we have received. We look to our future with increased confidence because of the tremendous generosity of our patrons. This is also the time of year when people think about their year-end

We at the Nashville Symphony are deeply grateful for the outpouring of support we have received. We look to our future with increased confidence because of the tremendous generosity of our patrons.

giving, and if you haven’t already, I hope you will include the Nashville Symphony in your own plans for charitable giving. This year, your support is needed more than ever as we work to ensure that we will be able to cover the $40 million in losses we sustained in the May flood. At the same time, we remain fully committed to serving the community with great music and barrier-free education programs. Your support brings some of the world’s greatest performers to Schermerhorn Symphony Center, funds exciting new commissioning and recording projects, shares music with the entire Middle Tennessee region through our free community concerts, and reaches underserved children through our forward-thinking music-education initiative One Note, One Neighborhood. Next month we are going to have one BIG New Year’s Eve celebration here at the Schermerhorn! Itzhak Perlman will join Giancarlo Guerrero and the orchestra to re-open the hall on December 31, complete with a champagne toast to the New Year. Our regular concert schedule will resume at the Schermerhorn in January, and I hope you’ll join us for one of the many fantastic concerts we have planned. Again, we are honored to have you with us this evening and sincerely appreciate your support of our work.

NSO cellist Michael Samis receives Kelingos Education Fund award We’re pleased to announce that Nashville Symphony cellist Michael Samis is the latest orchestra musician to receive an award from the John Kelingos Education Fund. Since 2004, the Kelingos Fund has annually provided grants to members of the Nashville Symphony for the purpose of pursuing advanced study with teachers or colleagues from across the country. Samis used his award to help defray the cost of traveling to New York to study with Jerry Grossman, principal cellist of the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra, and with Jerry Kagan, the Met’s retired associate principal cellist. This is his second time to receive a grant from the Kelingos Education Fund — in 2007, he used his award to study with Desmond Hoebig, who was at the time principal cellist of the Cleveland Orchestra. “Spending this summer learning this extremely difficult opera music and receiving feedback from these two world-class Met principals turned out to be one of the longest strides I’ve yet taken in my path of artistic development,” says Samis. “The Kelingos scholarship makes it possible for us as symphony players to keep our edge.” The Kelingos Education Fund was created by Ann Woodmore in memory of her friend and companion, John A. Kelingos, a violinist with the Nashville Symphony for 26 seasons and a mathematics professor at Vanderbilt University. For more information about the fund, contact Holly Noble, Special Campaigns Coordinator, at 615.687.6529 or

Meet Melinda Whitley Viola, Nashville Symphony Hometown: Louisville, Ky. Member of the Nashville Symphony since: 1999 Are there any pieces you’ve been especially looking forward to performing this season? Hindemith is one of my favorite composers, and his Symphonic Metamorphoses is one of my favorite pieces. It’s just challenging enough, and it doesn’t get played very often. Playing it at our seasoning-opening concert in September brought back memories from the first time I played it. reBecca J willie

The Nashville Symphony will be returning to Schermerhorn Symphony Center at the end of the year. What makes you I remember sitting in most excited about returning? Just having the team all together rehearsal thinking, again. When the orchestra’s at the Schermerhorn, and we’re all at our “I've got to do this!” backstage lockers, we get that team mentality, which really does help the way that we play. I miss that. I’m also really looking forward to the natural light in the concert hall. It’s one of those joyful places where you want to make music. What is your earliest musical memory? I started out dancing ballet when I was a little kid, and I always loved the music. That’s what got me into playing the viola. One of my earliest symphonic memories was when I was in eighth or ninth grade. We had a really big youth orchestra system in Louisville, and the first year I was in the big symphony with the older kids, we did Beethoven’s Sixth Symphony [which the Nashville Symphony is performing this month]. I remember sitting in rehearsal thinking, “I’ve got to do this!” What do you like to do when you’re not performing with the orchestra? My golden retriever, Chloe, is a therapy dog, and I am the liaison for the local affiliate of the Delta Society, a pet therapy group. I coordinate about 32 dog therapy teams, who visit patients at the various facilities at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, plus I visit Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt with Chloe. It’s all volunteer work, and it’s very rewarding to be able to share an animal that has a special gift for interacting with kids. We go into difficult situations sometimes with patients who are in pain or undergoing serious treatment, but I always come out feeling as though I’ve received more than I’ve given. Earlier in your career, you toured as a musician in Mexico and South America. Do you have any memorable stories to share? I was touring with the Aguavá New Music Studio. My parents were terrified, because we were traveling to Bogotá and Medellín, and there was a civil war going on in Colombia. After we arrived, the airport in Bogotá got bombed. One night, we were dining in the hotel restaurant, and we noticed that there was this red dot shining on our table. The management came along and told us to move, because it turned out that there was a sniper across the street, and he was aiming into the hotel. Later, when we were in Mexico City, our bus broke down in the middle of a five-way intersection. Our bus driver got off the bus and left, and we weren’t even sure where he went. At the time, I had been invited to audition for the Boston Symphony, and I was sitting there thinking, “I’ve got to get back to the hotel and practice!” So finally I got up, and I said to everyone on the bus, “I’m playing my audition list for you guys.” As a way to prepare for an audition, that’s about as unusual as it gets!

richard daNielpour born on January 28, 1956, in New York City, where he currently resides For Richard Danielpour, the greatest composers in the classical tradition are those who, like Mozart and Bach, are able to transcend the ego, and whose creative process involves more than mere self-expression. In an interview with Ann McCutchan, Danielpour declared that such music “is serious in every way but doesn’t take itself too seriously.” He likes to remind his composition students not to take themselves too seriously or become obsessed only with “beautifully richard danielpoUr sculpted, perfect ideas.” The major blind spot of many “serious” composers of the avant-garde in the postwar decades, according to Danielpour, is that they were too closely invested in the image of the suffering artist and had “lost the vocabulary for joy, and for tenderness and playfulness.” He points to Stravinsky, in contrast, as a composer who never let go of his capacity for playful discovery. A crucial step in the evolution of Danielpour’s own voice was his recognition of spontaneity and “an inherent sense of play” as essential for making music. Born to parents of Persian-Jewish heritage, Danielpour grew up in southern Florida and taught himself to play piano at the age of 12. He initially imagined a performance career as a pianist but decided to devote himself to composition when he realized that what came to him most naturally was the act of writing music. Danielpour studied at the New England Conservatory and at Juilliard, with Vincent Persichetti and Peter Mennin as his most-important mentors. He has since gone on to become a sought-after composition teacher himself, serving on the faculties of the Manhattan School of Music and the Curtis Institute. Danielpour’s music embraces the familiar language of tonality from a contemporary perspective. It draws eclectically on various aspects of the European tradition — Mozart, Britten, Shostakovich and Stravinsky, for example — but is firmly rooted in the sound of such notable American influences as Copland, Gershwin, Barber and Bernstein. The Beatles and jazz are among the popular and vernacular inspirations for Danielpour’s music. Lacrimae Beati Danielpour composed Lacrimae Beati (“Tears of the blessed one”) in 2008 on a commission from the Sejong Soloists string ensemble for the Great mountains International music Festival in South Korea, and revised the score in January 2010. Dedicated to the spirit of mozart (“In memoriam: 1756-1791”), Lacrimae Beati meditates on that composer’s final music for his Requiem and its private meanings for Danielpour. First performance: December 2, 2009, at Alice Tully Hall in New York by the Sejong Soloists First Nashville Symphony performance: These are the orchestra’s first performances estimated length: 11 minutes The genesis of Lacrimae Beati illustrates both the intimate connection Danielpour feels with the musical past and the role serendipity plays in his creative imagination. While living in Berlin in 2002 on a fellowship, he flew one weekend to Vienna to see a performance by baritone Thomas Hampson, a friend and colleague. Before heading to the airport to return to Berlin, Danielpour decided to pay a visit to Beethoven’s gravesite but mistakenly ended up at the St. Marx Cemetery, where Mozart had been buried in a notoriously unmarked mass grave — though his name was later engraved on a memorial stone at the presumed site of his burial. “In a moment of frantically going through the rows November

What to listen for The title Lacrimae Beati translates as “Tears of the Blessed One” and thus conjures the image of Mozart himself reflecting, just as he was in the prime of his life, on last things. The eerie conjunction of literally stumbling upon Mozart’s grave and the terrifying flight here inspire music for string orchestra which is by turns ominous and serenely elegiac. “Lacrimae Beati is as much about the Requiem of Mozart and his struggle to complete the work as it is about my experience of it in the

of tombs,” writes the composer, “I tripped over a tree stump, falling flat on my face. When I picked myself up, I found myself a few yards away from a single granite gravestone in a clearing with the name ‘Mozart’ inscribed.” Several hours later, as he was bound for Berlin in a minijet, Danielpour and his fellow passengers were violently shaken “in the midst of 200-mile-an-hour headwinds.” The storm, he realized after the pilots brought the plane to a safe landing, had uprooted several big trees in Berlin. During the ordeal, Danielpour recalls, “I kept hearing, as if it were a tape loop in my mind, the “Lacrimosa” from the Mozart Requiem.” The “Lacrimosa” (“that day of tears”) is not only the final section of the Dies irae sequence in Mozart’s unfinished Requiem, but also represents some of the last fragments of music Mozart was able to write down. “For nearly 30 years,” Danielpour observes, “I have thought about… the circumstances in which that music and most of the Requiem were composed.”

air on October 29, 2002,” writes Danielpour. Cast in a single movement, the music begins with a dark, sighing gesture in slow motion, deep in the bass, against which a tier of ambiguous harmonies is stacked. This half-step motion — a fundamental motivic idea in the piece — alludes to the two-phrase “sighs” that the violins restlessly play throughout Mozart’s “Lacrimosa.” The full body of strings begins to build a calming chorale, but busy figurations soon disrupt the texture. The “chorale” serves as a kind of haven as the harmonies darken. Agitated scales suddenly sweep into the foreground, building toward a climax that resolves on a prolonged chord of D major. Characteristic of Danielpour’s language is the dramatic use of silence to pace musical events, as well as the combining of sacred, even archaic associations (from the Requiem) with the here and now. The final section reprises earlier themes and introduces a direct quotation of the violin sighs beginning Mozart’s “Lacrimosa” — which are prepared within the harmonic context of Danielpour’s piece. Immediately afterward, the contrast of shadow and light becomes searing in its intensity. Against a bank of chords sustained by the other strings, a solo violin lyrically soars above and then alights, joined by the ensemble in a radiant outburst of C major. Lacrimae Beati is scored for string orchestra. richard daNielpour Songs of Solitude Danielpour began composing Songs of Solitude in the fall of 2001 on a commission from the Philadelphia orchestra and completed the score in January 2002. Dedicated to baritone Thomas Hampson, the featured soloist here, the Songs mix elegiac and vernacular elements that evoke the stages of grief in response to war’s insanity. First performance: october 21, 2004, in Philadelphia, with David robertson conducting the Philadelphia orchestra and Thomas Hampson as baritone soloist First Nashville Symphony performance: These are the orchestra’s first performances estimated length: 30 minutes Danielpour’s first opera, Margaret Garner — based on the true story of an escaped slave, with a libretto by Toni Morrison — premiered in 2005, but the composer’s gift for setting words to music was already long established. As Danielpour himself has observed, much of his earlier music reveals “an opera composer in disguise” who found inspiration in the “hidden plot” provided by poetic texts and even by his dreams. Songs of Solitude originated in a very dark time, in tandem with An American Requiem, which was Danielpour’s largest composition up to that point; together, these were the last two scores he completed before beginning work on Margaret Garner. It was on September 11, 2001, that he had settled down to the task of proofreading his score for An American Requiem, which had already occupied him for a year. Danielpour’s design had been to write a piece that addressed “the insanity of war,” interlacing the texts of the Latin service with the work of American poets. It began to seem to Danielpour as if the Requiem “in some strange and eerie way” had anticipated the nightmare that was occurring. Now, in the wake of the terrorist attacks, Danielpour decided “to consciously create something that would be a response to the issues surrounding such an awful tragedy. I was especially drawn to the need for peace in troubled times.”



N ov e m be r


As it happened, the composer was just beginning a retreat at the secluded Copland House in the lower Hudson River Valley — the former longtime residence of Aaron Copland. Danielpour had brought along poetry collections by the Persian mystic Rumi and by William Butler Yeats, with a view to selecting texts for a new commission for Thomas Hampson and the Philadelphia Orchestra. He found himself gravitating toward the intensely concentrated imagery of Yeats, with its evocations of “apocalyptic moments [he] experienced after the First World War.” These seemed to provide a natural continuation of what Danielpour had been wrestling with in the Requiem, with its essential question: “Why war?” The Copland House surroundings set the tone for the air of solitude and reflection that pervades the cycle. Danielpour points out that the plainness of the house inspired a new sense of economy and sparseness in his own composition, as did the oracular tone of the great Irishman’s poetry. He compares the basic emotional trajectory traced in Songs of Solitude to the “stages of grief ” as outlined by Swiss psychiatrist Elisabeth Kübler-Ross, although there is no “literal correspondence, bar by bar.” Danielpour sketched the entire cycle at unusual speed, in less than a month.

What to listen for Danielpour tailored the vocal settings of the six Songs of Solitude for Hampson’s lyrical, expressive baritone. The orchestra, meanwhile, provides a new dimension of expressive commentary to intensify the emotional resonance. The six movements segue directly into each other, with a framework at the beginning and end based on the same musical material. The Prologue (“A Meditation in Time of War”) begins with a solo trumpet melody against flowing triplets, while the vocal line descends with a weary gravitational pull. The tolling chimes and woodwind solos anticipate significant gestures to come. Setting the first stanza of Yeats’ poem “Blood and the Moon,” the second song introduces a dramatically violent sonority in keeping with the imagery of “a bloody, arrogant power.” The music also tends toward the incantatory, with directions for the singer to become “ethereal, dreamlike” as he evokes Gregorian chant. Danielpour’s “Drinking Song,” which turns to the third and fourth stanzas of “Blood and the Moon,” suddenly injects a vernacular strain, its striding bass and jazz syncopations echoing the aggressive symphonic jazz of West Side Story. The sound of the chimes comes to the fore again in the fourth song (“These Are the Clouds”) and sets off the soloist’s a cappella passages. A slight pause then leads to the most extensive song of the cycle, which is based on Yeats’ bestknown poem of apocalypse, “The Second Coming.” Danielpour establishes a triple-meter pulse throughout, which evokes both an ominous tread and the sense of a relentless pattern. At the phrase “the blood-dimmed tide is loosed,” he asks for “light, transparent” singing, soft but not quite falsetto, before the soloist dramatically returns to full voice. Numerous brief orchestral interludes underline the sense of anxious expectation. As an epilogue, Danielpour sets the first stanza of “Vacillation,” with its pithy portrayal of human “extremities.” As a musical response to the question posed by the poem — “What is joy?” — Danielpour returns to the strains that had opened the cycle, adding new colors to his orchestration for the trumpet’s melody, as the music comes to a gentle, open-ended rest. In addition to solo baritone, Songs of Solitude is scored for 3 flutes (3rd doubling piccolo), 2 oboes (2nd doubling English horn), 3 clarinets (3rd doubling bass clarinet), 3 bassoons (3rd doubling contrabassoon), 4 horns, 3 trumpets, 3 trombones, tuba, timpani, 3 percussionists (vibraphone, chimes, glockenspiel, xylophone, crotales, water gong, suspended cymbal, hi-hat, vibraslap, guiro, low tom-tom, snare drum, bass drum, tambourine, wood blocks, rutes, triangle, castanets and tam-tam), celesta, piano, harp and strings. recommended listening: Neither of the Danielpour works on this program are available on commercial recordings, although these performances are being recorded for a future release on Naxos.

His musical vision of “scenes of pagan Russia” became one of the defining moments of musical iGor stravinsky modernism. Its revolutionary sound results from bold rhythmic innovations, ingenious orchestration and the combination of archaic folk elements with unusual harmonies. The work continues to leave its mark on composers today.

In 1910, Stravinsky enjoyed a smash success with his first major work for the Paris-based Ballets Russes. The company’s director, Sergei Diaghilev, had taken a risk by commissioning the virtually unknown 27-year-old composer to write his score for The Firebird, a richly costumed extravaganza based on Russian folklore. Its enthusiastic reception put Stravinsky on the international map. While he was still composing The Firebird, Stravinsky embarked on a collaboration with Nikolai Roerich to work out the scenario for a revolutionary new ballet based on a scene, set in archaic Russia, of a “pagan ritual in which a chosen sacrificial virgin danced herself to death.” Roerich, a mystically inclined archeologist and painter, was considered an authority on Russian folklore and antiquity, and he created the eerily dreamlike set designs for the premiere. Together, the pair brainstormed and researched aspects of primeval Russia: the score’s subtitle is “Scenes of Pagan Russia.” (See the sidebar on p. 37 for the story told in Rite.) Stravinsky seems to have realized immediately that the music he was beginning to imagine would push his creative instincts to the limit. In the meantime, he created the ballet Petrushka, which premiered in 1911 and won another success with his Parisian admirers. Rite was finally ready to be unveiled in the late spring of 1913 at the art nouveau Théâtre des Champs-Élysées, which had recently been completed. The riot-inducing first performance has become the stuff of legend. Yet, according to a number of Stravinsky experts, much of the audience’s reaction was likely directed at the novel, weirdly gestural choreography devised by Ballets Russes star Vaslav Nijinksy. In place of conventionally graceful balletic gestures, Nijinsky had his dancers contorting in violent, earthbound patterns. The battling factions in the audience became so noisy that they eventually drowned out the music. The notoriety of that opening turned out to be good publicity for the ballet, even if it left the composer traumatized. Outrage gave way to approval as the run continued. This quick shift in opinion is just one of many paradoxes associated with Rite. Despite its initial rejection, the score almost immediately established itself as perhaps the seminal work of 20th-century musical innovation.

Although Stravinsky had not set out to write a manifesto of new music, Rite became the rallying cry of modernists. Hardly a composer since has been able to withstand its magnetic spell. Nowadays, this music is typically encountered as an abstract concert piece, rather than as a ballet score. Yet Stravinsky deeply immersed himself in the world of pagan Russian folk culture to create an intensely theatrical work. From its original conception, Rite married music with visceral images of the elementary bond between human bodies and the earth. Inherent in the score, therefore, is a fascinating tension between the primal and the ultra-modern. And — as the unfolding horrors of the 20th century would soon bear out — these apparent opposites share an implacable, pitiless savagery.

What to listen for Rite’s propulsive, jagged, lurching rhythms are probably its best-known feature. Just as Schoenberg had been working toward atonality with his “liberation of the dissonance,” Stravinsky’s rhythmic innovations enact a liberation of meter and rhythm from the predictable, symmetrical patterns that had dominated Western classical music since the baroque. Stravinsky builds intricate, complex rhythmic structures in two distinct and even diametrically opposite ways: One involves the use of repetitive ostinato patterns, while the other relies on wrenchingly asymmetrical shifts of meter that subdivide the rhythmic pulse. Additionally, Stravinsky overlays different metrical patterns, generating seismic jolts of energy as they grind against one another. For example, the conclusion of each of the ballet’s two parts features a monstrous climax composed of multiple tracks of instrumentation and meter. Stravinsky stacks these together, creating a sense of tightly controlled complexity at the precipice of chaos. The composer’s radical rethinking of musical language works on all levels in Rite. Pieter van den Toorn and other musicologists have teased out how Stravinsky’s savage-sounding, seemingly random dissonances derive from his



Nov e m be r


manipulation of the octatonic scale that had obsessed his teacher Rimsky-Korsakov. This eight-note scale — made of a sequence of whole notes alternating with half-notes — is the basis, for example, of the famous biting chords of “The Augurs of Spring” in Part One. In yet another example of Rite’s paradoxes, Richard Taruskin has exhaustively demonstrated how folk music sources are intimately embedded in Stravinsky’s modernist innovations (a fact which the composer went to lengths to disguise). Another radical element of Rite lies in Stravinsky’s innovative use of the orchestra. Indeed, this is the first aspect of the score’s unique musical language that we encounter, via the bassoon’s opening tune, which is played at the high end of its register to suggest the rawness of untrained village singers. Throughout, Stravinsky mixes an unusual, dazzling palette of instrumental combinations, often spotlighting players (especially percussion) who had been conventionally relegated to a background role in the orchestra, while de-emphasizing the traditionally omnipresent strings. While Rite builds several times to a kind of brutalizing frenzy before its final meltdown, the music also explodes in moments of overwhelming — if impersonal — joy. The entire opening section has never been bettered in its depiction of the swarming, anarchic joie de vivre of spring awakening. This is perhaps the greatest paradox of this seminal score: Stravinsky’s ability to evoke a joyful, affirmative sense of the life force that underlies even the most violent, death-prone extremes of the music. Rite is scored for 2 piccolos, 4 flutes, 4 oboes, 2 English horns, 2 clarinets, E-flat clarinet, 2 bass clarinets, 4 bassoons, 2 contrabassoons, 8 horns, small trumpet, 4 trumpets, bass trumpet, 3 trombones, 4 tubas, timpani, bass drum guiro, cymbals, antique cymbals, gong, triangle and strings. recommended listening: You can hear Stravinsky himself leading the Columbia Symphony in a performance of Rite from 1960 (Sony).

the Story of ‘rite’ The Rite of Spring is divided into two parts, each prefaced by hypnotically evocative introductions. Part one (“The Adoration of the earth”) centers on ancient Slavic rituals, which proceed from playful to fiercely combative. “All this,” Stravinsky says, “is interrupted by the procession of The old Wise man, who kisses the earth,” after which “the first part ends in a frenzied dance of the people drunk with spring.” Part Two (“The Sacrifice”), in contrast to the daytime setting of the first part, takes place at night and centers on the vision that originally inspired Stravinsky. Here the maidens dance “secret night-games” before fate selects one of them as the holy offering necessary to propitiate the earth. This “Chosen one” is glorified and then surrounded by a circle of old Wise men, who watch during a climactic “Sacrificial Dance” in which the girl dances herself to death. At the end, the elders rush forward to prevent her lifeless body from touching the earth, raising her up to the sky.

He is one of the most important interpreters of German romantic song and, with his celebrated “Song of America” project, has become the ambassador of American song. A significant part of Hampson’s 2010/11 season is dedicated to performances celebrating the 150th anniversary of Gustav Mahler’s birth and the 100th anniversary of his death. Recognized as today’s leading interpreter of the Austrian composer’s songs, Hampson began the worldwide celebrations on July 7, 2010 — Mahler’s 150th birthday — in Kaliste, Czech Republic, with a recital from the composer’s birth house and an internationally televised orchestral concert, available on DVD. Additional highlights of Hampson’s 2010/11 season include performances in the title role in a new production of Verdi’s Macbeth at Lyric Opera of Chicago; three all-Strauss concerts with Renee Fleming and the Berliner Philharmoniker conducted by Christian Thielemann; performances and a world-premiere recording of Richard Danielpour’s Songs of Solitude, originally commissioned for Hampson and the Philadelphia Orchestra; and the worldpremiere of William Bolcom’s Laura Sonnets, also written especially for him. Much of Hampson’s 2009/10 season was devoted to the “Song of America” project, commemorating the 250th anniversary of what is recognized as the first song written by an American.

In a pop music scene teeming with great singer/ songwriters, few are as talented and engaging as Jewel. With her rare combination of angelic voice, winsome stage presence and inspired songwriting, Jewel has won a large, devoted following since her first record, Pieces of You, began climbing the charts in 1995. The Nashville Symphony will welcome Jewel and guest conductor Matt Catingub for three evening performances at Lipscomb University’s Allen Arena. Audiences can look forward to hearing some of Jewel’s bestloved songs, as well as some unexpected selections that display her remarkable range as a singer. Upbeat music from the orchestra will kick off the program, beginning with “Pick Yourself Up,” a Jerome Kern tune that gave Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers their classic duet in the 1936 film Swing Time. The lighthearted tone continues with “Martha, My Dear,” the sprightly Beatles song from their 1968 White Album. Paul McCartney — so the legend goes — named the song’s love object after his Old English Sheepdog. No doubt a very different breed of dog will come to mind when the Symphony nods to the coming holiday season with a “Charlie Brown Christmas Medley.” Jazz great Vince Guaraldi’s sparkling score for the 1965 television special, Merry Christmas, Charlie Brown, is a perennial holiday favorite, and Nashville audiences

will enjoy a medley arranged by guest conductor Matt Catingub. The versatile Catingub, who is a gifted composer and performer as well as a conductor and arranger, will also present two of his own compositions — “The Journey” and “Millennium Swing” — during the first part of the program. Jewel will take the stage for the second half of the evening, and she’s sure to offer up fresh renditions of her hits, including “Who Will Save Your Soul,” the remarkably mature ballad she wrote as she hitchhiked around Mexico when she was just 16. Jewel has always been admired for her poetic, thoughtful lyrics. Her songwriting skills are matched by her gifts as a singer, and her ethereal voice and unaffected delivery allow her to make any song her own. Nashville audiences may be lucky enough to hear her capture the sweet yearning of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” or pay tribute to Cole Porter with a lively version of “Anything Goes.” Even her longtime fans might be surprised by the range and delicacy of her voice when she performs the enchanting aria “Per La Gloria D’Adorarvi” from Giovanni Bononcini’s 1722 opera, Griselda. Whatever her choice of songs, Jewel never fails to leave her audiences feeling a bit of the spirited sweetness that infuses all her music. — Nashville-based freelance writer Maria Browning is pops program annotator for the Nashville Symphony.

about the artists JeWel Jewel, a three-time GRAMMY® nominee hailed by The New York Times as “a songwriter bursting with talents,” has enjoyed career longevity that is rare among her generation of artists. Rising from her Alaskan childhood on a remote ranch to the triumph of international stardom, Jewel earned the respect of other singersongwriters such as Merle Haggard, Bob Dylan and Neil Young, who not only invited her to open their shows, but also mentored her in the early phases of her career. Whether alone with her guitar or fronting

a band of ace musicians, Jewel has always been a charismatic live performer. As a child she performed with her parents throughout native villages in Alaska. When her parents divorced, Jewel Jewel spent more than six years touring in a duet act with her father. At 15, Jewel went her own way, performing solo for the first time and earning a vocal scholarship to Interlochen, a private arts school in Michigan where she also majored in visual art. It was here that she learned guitar and began writing songs. Her first record — a live, acoustic modern folk collection called Pieces of You — initially sold only about 3,000 copies, so Jewel hit the road with a vengeance, playing four shows a day in 40 cities. Hard work and heartfelt songwriting, not to mention an exquisitely expressive voice, paid off. After a year on the road, “Who Will Save Your Soul” became a major hit. With the release of two other hit singles, “You Were Meant for Me” and “Foolish Games,” album sales went through the roof. Hailed by The Times of London as the most sparkling female singer-songwriter since Joni Mitchell, Jewel steadily built her reputation and fan base with subsequent albums. Touring remains part of Jewel’s essence and, through her U.S. and world tours, she has forged a powerful, intimate bond with audiences around the globe. Believing that deeds mean as much as words, Jewel founded Project Clean Water, which organizes teams of scientists and engineers to bring safe, clean drinking water to impoverished communities worldwide. As an ambassador to Virgin Unite, Jewel has teamed up with Richard Branson’s charity to bring greater awareness and funding to Project Clean Water, as well as other worthy causes such as youth homelessness.





Matt catiNGuB, conductor Multitalented musician Matt Catingub wears many hats: saxophonist, woodwind artist, conductor, pianist, vocalist, performer, composer and arranger. He wrote music for the GRAMMY®-winning soundtrack of the 2006 film Good Night, and Good Luck., and that same year he founded the Matt Catingub Orchestra of Hawaii, a 40-piece ensemble composed entirely of local Hawaiian musicians. He has arranged and conducted for a galaxy of performers, including James Ingram, The Righteous Brothers, Rosemary Clooney, Tony Tenille and Toto. Catingub has also conducted the Florida Orchestra, the Pacific Symphony, the Cincinnati Pops and Matt catinGUB many other orchestras. Born to parents of Polynesian descent, Catingub is the son of the great jazz vocalist Mavis Rivers. As a young man, he played a variety of instruments, from piano to clarinet, but he began a lifetime love affair with the alto saxophone at the age of 16. He joined the Louie Bellson Big Band in 1979, and just a few months later his composition “Explosion!” was recorded on Bellson’s album Dynamite for Concord Jazz. Beginning in 1983, he recorded several critically acclaimed jazz albums for the SeaBreeze label, including My Mommy and Me, heralded as “one of the best big band records in years!” For High Tech Big Band, Catingub played every instrument himself and created a big band sound using the latest in technology — a feat still recognized as a technical hallmark in recorded music. During this same period, Catingub was asked to lead the jazz ensembles program at the Grove School of Music in Los Angeles. He also accepted the position of director of the New Zealand Youth Jazz Orchestra, holding this post from 1985-90. As part of his expanding involvement with music education, Catingub became a clinician for Yamaha, for whom he still regularly performs in concert and conducts clinics.

claude deBuSSy born on August 22, 1862, in Saint-Germain-en-Laye, France; died on march 25, 1918, in Paris Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun Claude Debussy completed Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun in 1894, possibly using sketches that go back to the previous decade. Debussy’s first important orchestral work and his first real masterpiece, Prelude is also an early touchstone of modernism, notable for its revolutionary approach to form and texture.

Their reaction is in striking contrast to the riots that greeted other works associated with the birth of modernism, including — nearly two decades later — The Rite of Spring (performed earlier this month by the Nashville Symphony). Yet, while it represents an early expression of modernity in music, Debussy’s exquisite 10-minute tone poem marks a definitive moment of its own.

been labeled “Impressionism,” which tend to ignore the importance of literary touchstones for his work. His inspiration for Prelude was Stéphane Mallarmé’s Symbolist poem from 1876, L’Après-midi d’un faune (“The Afternoon of a Faun”). The poem is a dramatic monologue with a pastoral setting in ancient Sicily and describes the erotic fantasies entertained by a faun (a mythic rural deity who is halfman, half-goat) as he recalls his attempts to seduce comely nymphs. The faun also evokes the seductive spell of music by playing his reed pipes. Debussy initially envisioned an orchestral triptych based on the poem, but only completed the first part (hence the otherwise enigmatic qualifier “Prelude”). This in turn became a self-standing concert piece, although it was also made into a controversial ballet (see the sidebar below).

What to listen for With his Prelude, Debussy leaves behind the Romantic world of overt emotional declaration and enters a nebulous, twilit sphere that resounds with harmonic and rhythmic ambiguities. This emerges from the opening bars in the gauzily chromatic flute solo (a reference to the faun’s iconic piping) that oscillates between a C-sharp and a G below — an interval known as the tritone, which casts a tantalizingly ambiguous spell on ears accustomed to the Western tonal system. Debussy abandons the principle of conventional thematic development, although he uses thematic and harmonic recall throughout the piece for his own expressive ends. Similarly, Prelude veers away from the narrative structure of Romantic tone poems, offering a self-contained meditation on Mallarmé’s ode to sex and art. dances with Scarves Debussy replaces such thematic and narrative approaches with a musical process that is closer to the hazy logic of dreams. He In 1912, vaslav Nijinksy — hints deliciously at the borderline state between dreaming and who would choreograph consciousness in the score’s breath-like gestures and exquisite The Rite of Spring the instrumental colorings. following year — starred The precision and nuance of Debussy’s scoring, which in a ballet interpretation of convey the ebb and flow of lust and longing, are integral to his Prelude to The Afternoon innovative compositional approach. They also make Prelude a particularly challenging piece to realize in performance. Shifts of a Faun presented by in weight and balance among the instrumental textures are, in Sergei Diaghilev’s ballets a sense, what this music is about. Especially admirable is the russes.

FraNz SchuBert born on January 31, 1797, in vienna; died on November 19, 1828, in vienna Symphony No. 6 in C major, D. 589 “Little” Franz Schubert composed his Symphony No. 6 in C major between october 1817 and February 1818. This work of his early adulthood has been overshadowed by its two successors — the Unfinished Symphony and the “Great” Symphony in C major — but offers many delights of its own and shows how Schubert brings his personal style of lyricism and invention to the symphonic tradition he inherited from the great viennese masters. It also adds the witty charm of Rossini’s influence to the mix.

Franz schUBert

First (public) performance: The Symphony No. 6 received a private performance by a small chamber orchestra in 1818, but was given its public premiere on December 14, 1828 — less than a month after Schubert’s death — by the vienna Society of Friends of music. First Nashville Symphony performance: January 15 & 17, 1987, at Tennessee Performing Arts Center with Associate Conductor Amerigo marino. estimated length: 35 minutes As Schubert approached the end of his teen years, he experienced a geyser-like outburst of creative activity. In 1815, when he was only 18, he enjoyed his most prolific year as a composer, producing about 140 songs, along with numerous other works. By 1816, he was beginning to channel more of this energy into ambitious, large-scale instrumental forms. Schubert had a more difficult time coming of age as a young man than he did as a composer. His attempts to establish a career path that could support his artistic ambitions proved frustrating, and he found himself locked into a hated, dead-end job teaching in his father’s primary school. Before Schubert could — with the encouragement of a close-knit circle of loyal friends — permanently break free to take up his famously Bohemian lifestyle, composition provided his escape hatch from the drudgery of his teaching duties. Schubert’s earlier formal training had included a period of study with Antonio Salieri, known to fans of Amadeus as Mozart’s jealous rival — and who, as it happens, was a former teacher of Beethoven’s as well. The elderly Salieri seems to have tried to direct his young pupil toward Italian prototypes and the medium of opera. By the time of his Sixth Symphony, Schubert had made his own thorough study of his forebears in the classical Viennese school — Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven — but he was also captivated by the operas of Rossini, which were taking post-Napoleonic Europe by storm. Visits by the Italian Opera Company to Vienna, starting in late 1816, had sparked a Rossini craze. While he was at work on the Sixth Symphony, Schubert even paused to write two concert overtures, which were later subtitled “in the Italian style.” The subtitle “Little,” which was posthumously given to this piece, was meant to distinguish it from his other, later C-major symphony — known as No. 9, the last symphony Schubert completed and a work indeed epic in scope. But the unfortunate connotations of “trivial” or “unimportant” may also have unnecessarily biased music lovers against the charms of what remains a relatively neglected composition. In fact, the Sixth is just as sizable as the later symphonies of Mozart and Haydn, and several of Beethoven’s as well.





them as well. Their spirit dominates in the lucid scoring and sweetness of the F-major Andante. An intervening episode confronts Schubert’s lyrical sensibility with cross-grain gestures of harmonic and rhythmic contrasts. This music is hardly “little” in terms of its layout and juxtapositions. In his previous five symphonies, Schubert retained the term “minuet” for his third movement; here he replaces it with “Scherzo” for the first time. The main part of the movement frolics with the same pattern and play of loud against soft that are familiar from Beethoven’s pioneering symphonic scherzos. (In particular, Beethoven’s First Symphony is the obvious model here, though Beethoven himself had actually called that movement — perhaps tongue-incheek — a “minuet.”) The pastoral Trio surprises with both its modulation (E major against the C major of the rest of the movement) and its length. Schubert’s finale looks ahead to the ambling, leisurely excursions of his later scores even as it introduces particularly “Rossini-esque” elements in its sparkling, opera buffa sensibility.

What to listen for A major feature of the Sixth Symphony is its curious mixture of rhetorical attitudes. A slow introduction begins imposingly, in the manner of several of Schubert’s high-classical predecessors, and suggests great events about to unfold. Yet the first movement proper actually begins almost insouciantly, with a lighthearted theme cheerily piped by flutes and oboes. Schubert’s scoring is often chamber-like in its textures, and in its deft treatment of woodwinds contrasting with strings and with the full ensemble. The development plays up the relaxed manner of the main theme by feigning a “false” return before the real recapitulation settles in. Schubert unexpectedly veers toward full-blown, muscular statements of a more “heroic” cast in the coda, for which he speeds up the tempo. Although Beethoven casts a clear shadow over this score (the just-mentioned coda even alludes to the dissonant harmonies of the Leonore Overture No. 3), Schubert was a profound admirer of Mozart and Haydn, and drew many lessons from

Symphony No. 6 is scored for 2 flutes, 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 2 horns, 2 trumpets, timpani and strings. recommended listening: The recording Sir Thomas Beecham made in 1955 with the Royal Philharmonic at the Abbey Road Studio remains the most elegantly persuasive account of this work in the catalogue. It’s paired with two other early Schubert symphonies (Nos. 3 and 5) in the Great Recordings of the Century series (EMI). ludWiG vaN BeethoveN born on December 16, 1770, in bonn, Germany; died on march 26, 1827, in vienna Symphony No. 6 in F major, Op. 68 “Pastoral” Using sketches that date back several years, beethoven composed the Symphony No. 6 (“Pastoral”) between the fall of 1807 and early 1808. He dedicated the score to his patrons Count Andreas von rasumovsky and Prince Franz Jospeh von Lobkowitz (both also dedicatees of the Fifth Symphony). The lUdwiG van Beethoven “Pastoral,” a testament to beethoven’s abiding love of nature as a healing source, was composed in tandem with the Fifth Symphony but explores a strikingly contrasting musical world. First performance: December 22, 1808, in vienna, with the composer conducting First Nashville Symphony performance: February 24, 1950, at War memorial Auditorium with music Director William Strickland estimated length: 45 minutes We tend to think of the initial impact of the Fifth Symphony, with all its remarkable strangeness, as an isolated event.. In fact, the Fifth and the Sixth premiered together (see sidebar on p. 58). That first audience may well have wondered how these two symphonies could possibly be the work of the same composer; yet Beethoven not only composed both, but did so almost simultaneously. The familiar and overly simplistic distinction between the Sixth and the Fifth as representing opposites — “feminine” and “masculine,” respectively — is sometimes described as the result of the composer’s need to “wind down” after the exertions of the more starkly dramatic and dynamic Fifth Symphony. In reality, the two works are more like twins in their simultaneous genesis and in some of the features they share, despite the dissimilarity of their overall characters. Beethoven restlessly moved from one lodging to another within Vienna, but he always felt at home in the countryside. The Sixth can be seen as his expression of thanks for the therapeutic joy he always found in nature. He even appended suggestive titles to each of its movements, all of them relating to scenes of nature and the countryside. These run as follows: “Awakening of Cheerful Feelings on Arriving at the Countryside” (first movement); “Scene by the Brook” (second movement); “Merry Assembly of Country Folk” (filling the usual position of a Beethoven Scherzo in the third movement); “Thunderstorm” (brief interlude); and “Shepherd’s Song: Happy, Grateful Feelings After the Storm” (finale). In a notable structural innovation, Beethoven links the last three movements together without pause. Despite his labeling of the piece, Beethoven seems to have been wary of being “read” too literally (an ambivalence later composers, such as Mahler, would also experience). To head this off, he pointed out that his music was “more an expression of feeling than painting.” Like Debussy’s Prelude, the “Pastoral” conjures its own self-contained world, suggesting a natural space, without overt reliance on an external narrative. November




What to listen for The first movement is very much about awakenings — gentle, not dramatic, ones. The distinction is particularly apparent if you pay attention to the rhythm with which the first theme, given to the violins, begins: ta-ta-ta-TA. Although it continues after that to follow a different pattern, and the melodic direction is different (up and down), this rhythm is reminiscent of the opening motto from the Fifth Symphony. As in the Fifth, Beethoven pursues rhythmic ideas in the Sixth with a fixed determination — but how strikingly different is the effect. Where the Fifth is built on powerful ratchetings of tension to suggest struggle and defiance, the first movement of the “Pastoral” evokes a vast sense of leisured relaxation — as if this trip to the country really means escaping mundane temporality. In place of a sense of relentless fate, Beethoven here anticipates the giddy euphoria of Minimalism’s recurring loops. The lengthy slow movement takes this principle of relaxation even further. It’s a daring ploy, coming right after an opening movement that itself made a point of removing dramatic tension. Yet Beethoven’s luscious orchestration (a quality not often associated with the composer) adds color to the patient waves of his melody. At times, the serenity

Schubert and Beethoven Schubert did regard beethoven as a musical hero, particularly in his last decade, but his attitude wasn’t always consistent. In fact, in a diary entry from 1816, Schubert refers to beethoven as a purveyor of “that eccentricity which joins and confuses heroism with howling….” It isn’t known for certain whether Schubert ever met beethoven, though the two composers inhabited the same city. beethoven was reportedly impressed by the quality of Schubert’s songs, declaring, “Truly, in Schubert there dwells a divine spark!” During the older master’s funeral — which took place less than two years before his own — Schubert served as one of the torchbearers.

of this music even seems to foreshadow the almost disembodied, ecstatically floating slow movements of late-period Beethoven. The series of woodwind cadenzas near the end, suggesting different birdcalls, are among the more explicitly extramusical references in the “Pastoral.” This programmatic element comes to the fore in the next two movements — but again, without being tied to a specific narrative. The third movement’s “merry gathering” adds earthiness to the innocence, restoring a very physical sense with its vigorous rhythms, in contrast to the ethereal flow of the preceding movement. The dancing and the raw humor of the peasants in the Trio bring a striking contrast in meter: an emphatic 2/4, as against the fleet triple time of the main part of the movement. This is followed by a fascinating structural innovation: an interlude movement linked to the Scherzo and to the finale. Clouds overshadow the peasant fun with ominous pianissimo until the thunderstorm arrives in full fury. (Fans of The Barber of Seville will recognize that Rossini may have given a nod to this passage in his own storm music for the second act.) Musically, the harsh harmonies, dynamic contrasts and orchestral effects of timpani and piercing piccolo introduce the single passage of serious conflict that occurs within the “Pastoral.” Whereas blazing victory is attained after terrible struggle in the Fifth, the finale of the “Pastoral” entails a gentler thanksgiving — once again, anticipating a radiant moment in one of the late-period string quartets. The winds intone a hymn-like phrase leading to the wheeling main theme, which is introduced by clarinet, then passed on to the horn, elaborated by the strings and finally given to the full ensemble. Even though the spirit of relaxation here is reminiscent of what we heard in the first two movements, Beethoven’s achievement is to make us feel as though we’ve landed in a new place. The coda touches on a note of nostalgia before bringing the idyll to a close.

a historical premiere If you had a time machine to carry you to one blockbuster event in music history, a tempting choice of destination would have to be the concert on December 22, 1808, at vienna’s Theater an der Wien (the same venue where the early version of Fidelio had premiered three years earlier, and where beethoven had taken up lodging for a time). The program that night was entirely devoted to new works by beethoven. While the reportedly unheated hall may have been freezing, and the concert exhaustingly long, you would have been in the first audience to hear — in the same sitting! — both the Fifth and the Sixth Symphonies. As if that weren’t enough, the program also featured the Fourth Piano Concerto, excerpts from the mass in C major, a concert aria and the Choral Fantasy (a kind of precursor to the Ninth). recommended listening and further exploration: Karl Böhm and the Vienna Philharmonic made a legendary recording of the “Pastoral” (Deutsche Grammophon) that still tops many critics’ lists. An example of Beethoven’s influence on literature can be found in André Gide’s touching novel La symphonie pastorale (1919), about a pastor and the blind girl he adopts. — Thomas May is the Nashville Symphony’s program annotator. He writes extensively about music and theater. His books include Decoding Wagner and The John Adams Reader.

Keys to Music City: Ben Folds

AboUT THe ArTISTS BeN FoldS A favorite on the symphony circuit, Nashville singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Ben Folds first found mainstream success as the leader of the critically acclaimed, platinum-selling Ben Folds Five. He has gone on to have a very successful solo career, releasing four studio albums, a pair of records documenting Ben Folds his renowned live performances, and a remix record. Lonely Avenue, a collaboration with English novelist Nick Hornby, was recently released on Nonesuch Records. The album features music and vocals by Folds and lyrics by Hornby, with string arrangements by influential pop string arranger Paul Buckmaster (David Bowie, Elton John, Leonard Cohen). GQ UK says, “Lonely Avenue is a fantastic album…the melodies soar in time-honoured Folds style, the lyrics are subtle and lovely and deftly done.” In 2009, Folds served as a judge on NBC’s a cappella competition The Sing-Off, a role he will reprise this month on the show’s second season. Folds has a special relationship with symphony musicians, having performed with some of the world’s greatest orchestras, including a record-breaking sold-out Australian symphonic tour in 2006, repeatedly sold-out nights at the Kennedy Center with the National Symphony Orchestra and at the Boston Pops with conductor Keith Lockhart, and several full-house residencies at the Sydney Opera House in Australia. FraNciSco Noya, conductor Francisco Noya has served as resident conductor of the Rhode Island Philharmonic Orchestra for 13 seasons.

Also in July, Noya conducted the classical concert “Philharmonic on Fire!,” the orchestra’s first-ever appearance at WaterFire. Noya began his career in the United States in 1979, earning degrees in composition and conducting from Boston University. Since that time, he has served as guest conductor with the Baltimore, San Antonio and Omaha symphony orchestras, among others. He was music director of the Empire State Youth Orchestra in Albany, New York, for 10 seasons, leading the group on two European tours as well as conducting them in concerts at both Carnegie Hall and Tanglewood. He served as music director of the Longwood Symphony Orchestra in Boston for 12 seasons, and he conducted acclaimed performances of Bellini’s Norma and Verdi’s Aida with Symphony by the Sea and the Bel Canto opera company.

With a musical sophistication well beyond his years and the ability to play almost any song by ear, he has developed a repertoire ranging from classical masterpieces to current chart-toppers. He began composing his own music at age 5. On February 1, 2010, Ethan joined music’s biggest names, including Barbra Streisand and Celine Dion, as the youngest member of the line-up for “We Are the World: 25 for Haiti,” a charity recording produced by Quincy Jones and Lionel Richie. In August 2010, he became one of the youngest musicians with a PBS concert special when Ethan Bortnick and His Musical Time Machine aired nationally on the network. Ethan will take his show ethan Bortnick on the road in late 2010 and early 2011, lighting up the stage in his first national headlining tour. The tour, scheduled to stop in more than 50 cities, will feature Ethan performing some of music’s biggest hits and classics for audiences of all ages. While on tour, Ethan will perform some of his own compositions, sharing the inspirational stories behind each piece. Ethan learned to play the piano at age 3 by mimicking any music he heard. He made his national television debut in May 2007 with an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and he has since appeared on The Oprah Winfrey Show, Good Morning America and The Martha Stewart Show. He made his concert stage debut in 2007 as well, opening for Nelly Furtado. He has taken the stage with both the Orlando and Naples Philharmonic Orchestras, making him the youngest piano soloist ever to perform with these ensembles. Through concert and charity events, he has shared the stage with legendary artists including Elton John, Natalie Cole, Smokey Robinson, Beyoncé, Reba McEntire and many more. Ethan has also made a name for himself as one of the world’s youngest philanthropists. Through performing, inspiring and educating, he has helped raise millions of dollars for charities around the world, including the Miami Children’s Hospital, the Boys & Girls Club, the American Heart Association, the Starkey Hearing Foundation and many others.

In the fall of 2009, Naxos released a recording of Guerrero and the Nashville Symphony performing works by Michael Daugherty. This coming season, Guerrero and the orchestra have two more recordings planned for release on Naxos, the first featuring the music of Argentine legend Astor Piazzolla and the second featuring American composer Joseph Schwantner. photo by david Bailey During the 2010/11 season, Guerrero will travel to five continents to guest-conduct a wide array of repertoire. In North America, he conducts the Cleveland Orchestra during one of its Miami residency weeks, marking his fourth appearance with the orchestra in as many years. He also returns to the Kansas City Symphony for a second consecutive year. In South and Central America, he makes his Brazilian debut with the São Paulo State Symphony Orchestra in a two-week residency with concerts in both São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro.

In addition, he will make a special appearance in his native Costa Rica to conduct the 70th anniversary gala concert of the Costa Rican National Orchestra. Guerrero appears for the first time in Asia conducting the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra in Kuala Lumpur, again with a twoweek residency. He returns to Australia for a re-engagement with the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra, which he conducted at the 2008 Adelaide Festival, coupled with a debut visit to the West Australian Symphony Orchestra in Perth. In Europe he will make his debut with the Brussels Philharmonic. Last season, Guerrero made his Boston Symphony Orchestra debut at Tanglewood and returned to the Philadelphia Orchestra at the Mann Center. His European engagements included return appearances with Lisbon’s Gulbenkian Orchestra and his U.K. debut with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra. In recent seasons he has appeared with many of the major North American orchestras, including the symphony orchestras of Baltimore, Seattle, Dallas, Detroit, Indianapolis, Houston, Milwaukee, Cincinnati, San Diego, Toronto, Vancouver and the National Symphony in Washington, D.C.

Help the Nashville Symphony plan for the Future When Schermerhorn Symphony Center opened to the public in 2006, we envisioned our concert hall serving many generations for decades to come. If you have that same vision for the Nashville Symphony, then a planned gift can become your ultimate demonstration of commitment and support. You can help us plan for our future — and your own — through this creative approach to philanthropy and estate planning, which allows you to make a significant contribution to the Nashville Symphony while also enjoying income and tax benefits for you and your family. Great orchestras, like all great cultural institutions throughout history, are gifts to posterity; they are built and bestowed to succeeding generations by visionary philanthropists. To find out more about planned giving opportunities, please contact Holly Noble, Special Campaigns Coordinator, at 615.687.6529 or Nashville Symphony Legacy Society The Legacy Society honors those patrons who have included the Symphony in their estate planning. anonymous Barbara B. & Michael w.
