Mary Chapin Carpenter with the Nashville Symphony

Wednesday, January 29, 2014, 7:30 p.m.

Schermerhorn Symphony Center

Mary Chapin Carpenter will join the Nashville Symphony for a very special evening of songs from her debut orchestral record, Songs From The Movie, which was released on January 14. Collaborating with composer/arranger and producer Vince Mendoza (Sting, Diana Krall, Elvis Costello, Joni Mitchell) and working once again with co-producer Matt Rollings (Keith Urban, Lyle Lovett), Carpenter's new record harkens to her love of classic film and symphonic music.

The result reprises 10 of Carpenter’s songs in Mendoza’s distinctively beautiful and cinematic arrangements— hence the album title — to give the listener the continuum of a film soundtrack, albeit an imaginary one. 

From “Come On Come On” to “On and On It Goes” to “I Am a Town” and “Goodnight America,” the record finds this multi-Platinum-selling, multi-GRAMMY®-winning, two-time CMA Female Vocalist and member of the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame still breaking new ground, giving us a record unlike any of her others, and what will surely be a memorable evening at the Schermerhorn.
