Free tickets are available for the Nashville Symphony’s Composer Lab & Workshop, featuring new music by four up-and-coming composers selected from a nationwide call for submissions.
The program is 7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 14, 2017, at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center, featuring the Nashville Symphony conducted by Giancarlo Guerrero.
Emily Cooley – Argo
James Diaz – Mirrors in the Void
Liliya Ugay – Oblivion
Shen Yiwen – Reminiscence and Oblivion
At this free open rehearsal, the public is invited to hear these musicians’ work performed live. Together, these composers represent an array of styles and sensibilities, and their work has been described as “beautiful,” “dramatic,” “lyrical,” “evocative” and “fluid.”
While in Nashville, participating composers will take part in a comprehensive program led by Symphony music director Giancarlo Guerrero and Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Aaron Jay Kernis, educating them on every facet of working with a major American orchestra. This program to identify and celebrate emerging talent is among the most comprehensive of its kind anywhere in the United States.
