Nashville Symphony Chorus Continues 50th Anniversary Celebration With Free Voices Of Spring Concert

Bookmark and Share

Now in its landmark 50th season, the Nashville Symphony Chorus will return to the stage for the annual Voices of Spring concert 3 p.m. Sunday, March 23, at Schermerhorn Symphony Center. The concert, which is free and open to the public, is the first of several highly anticipated events this spring as the ensemble continues a year-long celebration commemorating five decades of memorable performances from the choral repertoire.

Voices of Spring will showcase half a dozen works, including Rachmaninoff's All Night Vigil, Debussy's Salut Printemps and Britten's Voices for Today, the last of which will feature the Women of the Nashville School of the Arts Festival Choir. The program kicks off an exciting two-month stretch for the Chorus that features three events in Nashville and a visiting performance in Cincinnati, Ohio, as well.

"Each year the Voices of Spring concert provides an opportunity to feature an entire program of choral masterpieces, and for this special 50th anniversary season, I wanted to select a repertoire that highlights the talent and flexibility of this group," says Chorus Director Kelly Corcoran. "This program is full of variety, showcasing not only the technical achievements and range of the Chorus, but also their ability to connect with the audience emotionally and truly touch each listener."

The Chorus was formed in 1963 by Nashville Symphony conductor Willis Page to perform Handel's Messiah at War Memorial Auditorium. The all-volunteer ensemble is comprised of individuals from every part of the Middle Tennessee community, including judges, lawyers, educators, professionals, servers and conductors, young and old alike. Of the group's 205 current members, 12 have performed with the Chorus for at least 25 years, while one member, Richard Hatfield, has sung with the group since its inception.

Three weeks following the Voices of Spring concert, the Chorus will hold an open rehearsal and question-and-answer session at Schermerhorn Symphony Center on Monday, April 14, for local students as part of a new educational outreach initiative designed to cultivate a passion for choral music in young singers in Middle Tennessee. The group will then head north, joining the Cincinnati Symphony to perform Mahler's Eighth Symphony on Saturday, May 17, during the Cincinnati May Festival, widely considered America's premier choral festival.

To wrap up the 50th anniversary festivities, the Nashville Symphony Orchestra and Chorus will close out the season with Johannes Brahms' soul-stirring Requiem, May 29-31 at Schermerhorn Symphony Center. The program for the season finale will also include Samuel Barber's Knoxville: Summer of 1915, which adapts a text from novelist James Agee, and Leonard Bernstein's Chichester Psalms.
