Mozart’s genius burns with blazing intensity in the legendary Requiem that was to become his own funeral music. This music is instantly recognizable, thanks to its use in the Academy Award-winning film Amadeus, but to experience it live is to feel its power. Calling for an immense brass section 25 members strong, Janáček’s radiant Sinfonietta rings out with exultant fanfares and celebratory flourish.
Hot on the heels of his spectacular Carnegie Hall debut, the incredibly talented tenor Limmie Pulliam and pianist Mark Markham will bring an evening of spirituals to Schermerhorn Symphony Center. A dramatic tenor, Pulliam thrills audiences with his captivating stage presence and his powerful yet intimate sound. He recently made his debut at the Metropolitan Opera, where he became the first African American in the Met’s history to perform the role of Radamès in Giuseppe Verdi’s Aida. Pulliam’s program will be drawn from arrangements of Great Day!, Wade in de water, Ride on, King Jesus!, Another Man done gone, and other spirituals.
A Nashville Symphony audience favorite, pianist Joyce Yang captivates listeners with her virtuosity, lyricism, and interpretive sensitivity. Recent appearances with the Orchestra include performances of Grieg’s Piano Concerto in 2022, Chopin’s Second Piano Concerto in 2021, Rachmaninoff’s Concerto No. 2 in 2018, and Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto at Ascend Amphitheater in 2017. Winner of the 2010 Avery Fisher Career Grant and a GRAMMY® nominee for Best Chamber Music/Small Ensemble Performance, Yang showcases her colorful musical personality in solo recitals and collaborations with the world’s top orchestras and chamber musicians.
Forget your troubles and just get happy this June 30th when the Nashville Symphony presents Get Happy: A Judy Garland Centennial Celebration. Broadway stars Morgan James and Nicholas Rodriguez join the orchestra to bring the iconic Garland’s unforgettable songbook back to life—accompanied by rare interviews, family photos, and vintage footage of The Judy Garland Show with never-before-seen outtakes featuring Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., and Frank Sinatra. You’ll swear she’s there in person when you hear “Over the Rainbow,” “I’ll Be Seeing You,” and “That’s Entertainment.” It’ll chase all your cares away!
For the past ten years, Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute has assembled the finest young musicians ages 16–19 from across the country to form the National Youth Orchestra of the United States of America. Following a competitive audition process and training in New York with musicians from top professional US orchestras, these remarkable teenagers perform at Carnegie Hall and then serve as musical ambassadors, performing in the great music capitals of the world. We’re proud that two of our Nashville Symphony Accelerando students, trombonist Orlandis Maise and French hornist Derek “Miles” Woods – both graduating seniors at Martin Luther King Jr. Magnet High School – will go on the road with the orchestra this summer for the NYO’s 10th anniversary tour, and we’ll get to root them on at the Schermerhorn for this one-night-only concert. Violinist Hilary Hahn joins the orchestra as soloist performing the Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto in a program that also includes a new Carnegie Hall commission from composer Valerie Coleman and Berlioz's Symphonie fantastique.
