Nashville Symphony String Quartet at The Franklin Theatre; tickets are $10

Members of the seven-time GRAMMY®-winning Nashville Symphony will headline a morning concert celebrating the lasting impact of music education featuring Antonín Dvorák's American String Quartet.  In the inviting setting of the Franklin Theatre, student musicians from Williamson County Schools will open for these artists from our own internationally respected symphony.

I know I just scheduled a free symphony concert on March 10.  For those who can't make it, this is another great opportunity for $10 to hear classical music and see the remodeled Franklin Theatre!

You can buy tickets and get more information at the link below.  My seat is row K seat 9.  All the seats around me are available.  We can have lunch as a group afterwards at one of the nearby restaurants on Main Street.  My cell is [masked] if you don't spot me or see me in my seat.  There is a large free parking garage a block away.  Doors open at 10:00 a.m.

Music education and community engagement have been at the heart of the Nashville Symphony’s mission since the orchestra’s beginnings. The institution now reaches more than 250,000 adults and children annually through its free education and community engagement programs. Every week during the school year, musicians and staff work directly with students across Middle Tennessee, offering concerts, classroom presentations, curriculum materials, instrument lessons and other hands-on learning opportunities. The Nashville Symphony’s Community Concerts series brings the orchestra’s music to neighborhoods across the city.

In recognition of Music in Our Schools Month, the Nashville Symphony is helping to promote the Williamson County Schools’ program “Bring Your Music to Schools,” an initiative to put instruments in the hands of Williamson County students who may otherwise not have the opportunity to play in a band or orchestra. This March, WCS will collect donations of gently used or new band and string instruments as part of the district’s effort to increase the availability of performing arts to students.

You can bring a tax-deductible instrument donation to receive two free tickets to the concert!

For more information, contact Melissa Dufrechou ([masked]) or read about us in InFocus.

From wikipedia " The American string quartet, opus 96 in F major, is the 12th string quartet composed by Antonín Dvořák. It was written in 1893, during Dvořák's visit to the United States. Dvořák wrote that the quartet - one of the most popular in the chamber music repertoire - is influenced by American folk music. Some analysts have tried to identify specifically American folk motifs in the quartet, though many consider these attempts as mere speculation. Whatever the influence of American music on the quartet, the quartet itself has served as a model for later American composers."

    Hi. I'll be seated in seat K-9 tomorrow. I'll be wearing a purple shirt with black pants. I'll try to be in my seat by 10:20 a.m. Please stop by before or after the performance. I'll remain in my seat afterwards to visit with everyone. Several members of the Nashville Arts group have signed up as well.
