A must-see for any music lover, Mozart’s final masterpiece is a profoundly moving work, brimming with drama, hopefulness and redemption. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to hear the full Nashville Symphony and Chorus perform it live at the Schermerhorn. Nashville Symphony principal oboist James Button and principal clarinetist James Zimmermann will take the spotlight on two exciting new American works—Jennifer Higdon’s "Oboe Concerto" and Frank Ticheli’s "Clarinet Concerto"—both to be recorded for forthcoming release on Naxos.
Americans are enamored with the lives of celebrities. We watch them on TV, read about them in tabloids and follow them on social media. What we don’t see is what happens in their day to day lives away from the spotlight. America’s Storyteller Chambers Stevens provides audiences with a rare first-person journey through the “Human Side of Celebrity” in his touring one-man show. Stevens, a veteran actor, renowned acting coach and playwright, reveals his own lighthearted, sometimes hilarious, personal encounters with some of Tinsel Town’s biggest and most powerful star power during his 25 years as a Hollywood insider.
