The Nashville Symphony launches its 2014/15 Aegis Sciences Classical Series with a groundbreaking commission written by Conni Ellisor especially for Nashville-based electric bassist Victor Wooten. A stunning showcase for Wooten’s distinctive style, “The Bass Whisperer: Concerto for Electric Bass and Orchestra” will receive its world premiere at Schermerhorn Symphony Center. This all-American evening of music will also showcase the full orchestra performing classics both old and new by Aaron Copland, John Adams and Howard Hanson.

 


A grant from the Flora Family Foundation will support the Nashville Symphony’s efforts to preserve, promote and expand American orchestral music during the 2014/15 season.
