Florence Price – Piano Concerto in One Movement
Julia Wolfe – Her Story  Live Recording | World Premiere | Nashville Symphony Co-commission

Be here for the world premiere and live recording of Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Julia Wolfe’s Her Story. Written to honor the centennial of the 19th Amendment, this powerful new work for orchestra and vocal ensemble Lorelei is Wolfe’s latest composition to explore significant moments in the people’s history of America. Joan Tower’s rousing Sixth Fanfare for the Uncommon Woman sets the tone for this remarkable evening spanning multiple generations of composers. Also on the program are the distinctly American flair of Florence Price’s rarely performed Piano Concerto in One Movement, and a playful contemporary work by SiHyun Uhm, a recent participant in the Nashville Symphony’s Composer Lab & Workshop. 

Part of the 19th Amendment Centennial Commemoration honoring the 100th anniversary of women's suffrage.
